Dispatchers were able to identify the driver as 28-year-old Dustin L. Rittgers.

Rittgers was eventually stopped in the area of State Route 665 and Hibbs Road. He was arrested and charged with OVI, OVI refusal, following too closely, marked lane violation and open container in a motor vehicle.

Sheriff Scott said, “This situation shows the power of social media. Social media led us straight to this suspect to stop him before he was able to hurt himself or others. Social media is another crime fighting tool we use to keep Franklin County residents safe.”
