Every now and then a car leads police on a highway chase, but it's not often you see police chasing an ATV. That's what happened on Monday morning when state troopers noticed an ATV traveling westbound on I-277 in Akron.

Timothy Rice, 32, of Norton, was driving the ATV with Randy Schiffbauer, 21, of Orville, as his passenger. Troopers tried to stop the ATV, but Rice refused, leading troopers on a three-mile pursuit.

The pursuit ended when the ATV ran into the back of a cruiser on I-76 in Barberton. Rice fled on foot and was later caught by police and taken into Summit County Jail.
