An Ohio Department of Rehabilitation & Correction parole officer was in the area of North Gettysburg and Hoover avenues around 3 p.m. Feb. 22 when he saw Denney shooting a handgun at another man, according to an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal Court.

“Dayton police officers responded and attempted to stop Denney in the suspect vehicle; however Denney failed to comply and led police in a vehicle chase lasting approximately 30 minutes and reaching speeds well in excess of the posted speed limits (up to 90 mph),” the affidavit stated.

Denney reportedly drove off the road and struck mailboxes and other objects before he ultimately lost control and was apprehended in the 2600 block of North Lutheran Church Road in Brookville, according to the affidavit.

No attorney is listed for Denney, who is held on $100,000 bail in the Montgomery County Jail.
