GALLIA COUNTY, Ohio. (WTAP) - Deputies from the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office attempted to pull over Mark Hollingshead on U.S. 35 near the S.R. 850 Exit for not having a license plate on his car.

Deputies attempted to stop Hollingshead as he fled toward the West Virginia State Line. Hollingshead made several attempts to strike pursuing officers with his car while trying to evade capture, the Gallia County Sheriff said.

He continued north into Meigs County when he crashed his car while turning onto Township Rd. 376. Deputies were successful in taking Hollingshead into custody at the crash scene.

Hollingshead is being held in the Gallia County jail on charges of Felony Fleeing & Eluding and possession of illegal narcotics. It was also determined that Hollingshead had an active warrant for his arrest in Meigs County Ohio for a previous Fleeing and Eluding charge. Additional charges are pending.
