The pursuit, which involved officers from Dayton and Moraine, started in Moraine after officials attempted to initiate a traffic stop for a license plate violation around 1:15 a.m, according to officials.

A Kettering K-9 was called to the area of Randolph and McCall Streets, where the pursuit ended, to assist officials in catching Davis once he reportedly fled the vehicle.

Davis was evaluated at a local hospital prior to being taken to jail, police said.

Davis also had several outstanding warrants for other traffic violations, jail records showed.
