Police say a warrant is issued for his arrest pending his medical condition.

Franklin’s police chief released dashcam video Tuesday that captures the entire incident on video.  You can see the suspect’s car weaving in and out of traffic on Interstate 75 north before crashing near the I-675 exit in Miami Township.  You then see the suspect running from officers and into traffic.  He was struck by a car at that point.

The chase started after Franklin police officers made a traffic stop along State Route 123 Monday afternoon.

Ballinger is at Kettering Medical Center where at last check, he was in serious condition.

Officers say they did find suspected heroin inside Ballinger’s car.

Charges are pending further investigation.
