Columbus Police arrested a local man early Wednesday morning after a short vehicle pursuit.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., officers observed a vehicle near Seventh and Chestnut streets that was stopped in the street. A short time later, the driver of the truck, 23-year-old Adam W. Reinbold, began driving on Seventh Street at a high rate of speed. Officers say they pursued Reinbold as he disregarded the stop sign at the intersection of Seventh and California streets and continued driving east.

Reinbold eventually pulled his truck over near Seventh Street and Werner Avenue and exited the vehicle. While officers were conducting a high risk traffic stop, Reinbold repeatedly put his hands in his pants pockets and the officers utilized a Taser to incapacitate him.

Reinbold is facing preliminary charges of Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle, Resisting Law Enforcement and Criminal Mischief.
