Nick McWilliams reporting – The Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office and multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in an early-morning pursuit following a 911 hang-up.

The initial call came in past 2 p.m. for an emergency hang-up in the area of State Route 800 and Tracy Road in Mill Township. 

Sheriff’s deputies and troopers with the Ohio State Highway Patrol canvassed the area but were unable to locate the dialer, later identified as Autumn Hayes.  

A deputy stopped at her listed address when officers noticed her driving by on the street.

After attempting to pull the vehicle over, sheriff’s records indicate Hayes fled, with a pursuit ensuing.

Eventually, a successful stop was made, and Hayes was placed under arrest for suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and fleeing and eluding.

She was transported to Trinity Hospital to be medically cleared, before being booked into the Tuscarawas County Justice Center on the charges.
