DAYTON — UPDATE @ 5:10 p.m. (June 19): Two people remain in jail on preliminary charges stemming from a pursuit that involved hitting a sheriff's cruiser.
Christopher Harvey, 28, is detained pending the filing of three charges -- felonious assault, felony failure to comply with the signal or order of a police officer, and probation violation. A judge Tuesday afternoon set Harvey's bail at $50,000.
Also in jail is Blaire Kennerly, 27, detained pending the filing of one charge -- misdemeanor failure to comply with the signal or order of a police officer. She is due in court Wednesday.
WHIO-TV on Tuesday obtained surveillance video that shows the truck backing into the cruiser at a Germantown Shell station on early Monday.
Montgomery County deputies spotted a pickup truck three different times early Monday before they were able to get it stopped. Deputies had been looking for the truck after a 911 call accusing the driver of disorderly conduct at a bar. Deputies said they saw a man driving the truck when they lost it at some point during the pursuit.
Deputies said when they spotted the truck again, they gave chase and managed to get it stopped near Germantown Pike and Frytown Road in Jefferson Twp.
They broke the driver's side window and said the occupants refused to get out. That's when they discovered a woman behind the wheel. They arrested that woman, later identified as Kennerly.
Deputies also arrested the man with her, Harvey, who they believe was driving when the pickup hit the cruiser.
No injuries were reported.
