MANSFIELD, OH - A Galion man lead a U.S Marshals team on a pursuit through I-71 on Wednesday. 

The U.S Marshal's Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) was attempting to locate Rudel Chatman of Galion, Ohio. Chatman had an outstanding warrant for armed robbery, a felony of the 1st degree, from an incident in Mansfield, Ohio. 

SOFAST officers located Chatman in the area of Cleveland Avenue and Case Road driving a vehicle. Chatman then proceeded to elude officers, which resulted in a high-speed pursuit. Chatman was driving in excess of 100 miles per hour. 

The pursuit eventually involved Delaware County Sheriff's Deputies on I-71 northbound. The chase ended on I-71 near Morrow County when Chatman crashed into another car. Chatman was then detained and transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. The individual hit by Chatman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. 

Chatman was booked into the Deleware County Jail and then transported to the Richland County Jail early Thursday.
