TROY — A Piqua man with a lead foot who attempted to elude authorities in a September automobile chase that reached speeds in excess of 100 mph will have his driver’s license suspended for three years.

In addition, Ulrich L. Reed, 19, of Piqua, was sentenced to 10 months in prison and could be placed on post release control after serving his time at the discretion of authorities.

Last month, Reed entered a plea of no contest and was found guilty of failure to comply with a police officer, a felony.

On Sept. 27, Reed was driving a vehicle that had two juvenile female passengers inside near West Bausman and North Washington roads and was traveling 83 mph in a 55 mph zone, sheriff reports state.

Reed refused to pull over initially and drove more than 100 mph during the police chase, reports state.

Once Reed pulled over the two juveniles got out and told authorities they tried to get him to stop during the chase. They were not injured. Inside of Reed’s vehicle police found two knives underneath a car seat.
