Kodey R. Triplett, 20, of 1208 Greenwood St., was arrested after a 2:20 a.m. traffic stop today.
An officer on patrol observed a westbound sport utility vehicle turn from Sandusky Avenue onto northbound Main Street without stopping for a red light.
The officer activated his overhead lights while the SUV’s motorist sped off and abruptly turned west into an ally south of Eichholtz Funeral Home, 321 N. Main St.
Triplett then parked the vehicle and turned off the lights in an effort to avoid the officer. When questioned, Triplett admitted he was trying to evade the officer.
He was lodged in the Logan County Jail for driving under suspension and cited for no driver’s license and running a red light.
