Man charged after high-speed chase

A man was taken to Seneca County Jail after allegedly leading law enforcement officers on a chase that reached 120 mph Sunday afternoon.

Mark A. Mougey II, 32, of Clyde, was charged with failure to comply, speed, no motorcycle endorsement and expired registration, all misdemeanors.

Deputy Mark Lawson of Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said he attempted to stop the motorcycle for driving 78 mph in a 55 mph zone at SR 101 and TR 175. The ensuing chase reached speeds of up to 120 mph, went about 6 miles and went into Sandusky County.

Lawson said he obtained the motorcycle’s license plate information and started backing off the pursuit when Mougey pulled over.

Sandusky County Sheriff’s Office and State Highway Patrol personnel assisted with the chase.

In a separate incident, a Fostoria man was taken into custody after allegedly running from an officer.

According to Fostoria Police Department, Jeremiah D. Clay, 40, was charged with resisting arrest, a first-degree misdemeanor, Saturday morning. He was arrested on outstanding warrants.

“There was a brief car-foot pursuit,” Capt. Patrick Brooks said.

Brooks said the resisting arrest charge was due to Clay running and fighting with officers while being taken into custody. He was being held in Fostoria’s city jail Sunday evening.
