A Park Layne man led Clark County Sheriff Deputies on a high-speed chase Sunday morning that ended in Tipp City.

According to a release issued by Sgt. John Rogers of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop on Charles Dean Wiley at 12:27 a.m. Wiley then reportedly fled and crashed his truck into a ditch near Route 571 and Interstate 75. He then reportedly fled on foot. He was apprehended by law enforcement and taken to the Clark County Jail.

“Wiley has a long and extensive history of running from law enforcement officers and endangering the lives of other drivers on the roadway,” said Rogers in the release.

Wiley had outstanding warrants for Felony Receiving Stolen Property, fleeing and eluding, Obstructing Official Business, Reckless Operation, Criminal Damaging, Driving Under Suspension and Driving Without a Motorcycle Endorsement.

Wiley was also wanted by Fairborn Police for Failure to Appear on charges of Carrying a Concealed Weapon, No Driver’s License and Driving Under Suspension.

He will also face additional charges stemming from the pursuit, which include fleeing and eluding, Resisting Arrest, Obstructing Official Business and several other traffic-related charges.
