A local man driving a motorized wheelchair was apprehended yesterday following a low-speed police chase in Elyria.

Complaints had trickled in over the last few days after a man was spotted driving his motor scooter on roadways and into traffic, even keying vehicles as he went by. Yesterday, Elyria police attempted to take action and pull the man over near the 400 block of Cleveland Street, but the man — later identified as 31-year-old Graham L. Ley — evaded the officers by cutting across four lanes of traffic.

A low-speed chase ensued as Ley crested the sidewalk on East Bridge, refusing to pull over. A second patrol car was deployed to cut the man off, bringing Ley and his motor scooter to a stop just before a car wash.

After a short struggle, officers placed Ley under arrest and took him to the Lorain County Jail where he's being charged with resisting arrest, obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, criminal damage, and failure to comply. His chair was later picked up by LifeCare Ambulance.

TMC News nabbed some incredible footage of the incident. Do give it a watch as the whole incident is quite comical.
