Arrested at the scene was Brooke Montgomery, 24. Montgomery was handcuffed and placed in a Piqua Police cruiser while offers dealt with several other individuals connected with the disturbance. Montgomery managed to free one of her hands from the cuffs and open the door of the vehicle before running from the scene.

On Wednesday, a caller to Miami County 9-1-1 spotted Montgomery in a vehicle leaving Piqua and heading toward Troy.

Piqua police were alerted, along with Troy police and Miami County Sheriff’s Deputies.

A deputy spotted the suspect vehicle in the area of Sweitzer Driver in Troy and made a stop on the vehicle. Deputies reported that as soon as the cruiser’s lights were turned on, the suspect vehicle stopped and occupants “ran in all directions.”

The driver of the suspect car was quickly apprehended. He was cited for operating a motor vehicle without a license. Another passenger was arrested a short distance away on an outstanding warrant.

Montgomery was able to elude officers and is still being sought. In addition to multiple outstanding warrants, she will face additional charges of escape and drug abuse.
