Franklin County Sheriff's Office Says November Chase Violated Policy


Franklin County Sheriff's officials says deputies involved in a high-speed chase last November violated policy. 

Authorities say deputies continued it without regard to public safety.  The chase in west Columbus reached speeds up to 94-miles-per-hour and ended in a crash on Sullivant Avenue.  One of the deputies, Lieutenant Ed Schillig, will now face a hearing. That deputy was also part of a pursuit last February that ended in the death of Arthur Smith on Hamilton Road. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
