Sandusky police arrested Dominque Morris, 19, of the 800 block of Perry St., after a brief police chase Tuesday afternoon.
Morris was wanted on an assault warrant out of Cuyahoga County and an outstanding warrant from juvenile court, officers said.
When Sandusky officers tried to stop him as he drove an SUV near Columbus Avenue, Morris allegedly sped off, leading police on a chase that spanned a few blocks until Morris ditched the vehicle in the front lawn of an acquaintance's East Madison Street home. He ran inside the home, where he was arrested after a brief struggle, police said. Morris now faces additional charges of fleeing and eluding, obstruction and burglary.
