Police chase ends in two arrests

Teens charged in high speed crash in Campbell, Ohio

CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Two teenagers are in the Mahoning County after leading Campbell Police on a dangerous chase through city streets.

Samuel Horvath and Amber Kansa, both 19 years old, are being held without bond pending a mandatory court appearance Tuesday morning.

They were arrested Friday night after leading police on a chase through Campbell. According to police reports, Horvath was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee erratically in and around other traffic, at times crossing the double yellow line ramming police cruisers to try to get away. He was also driving with a suspended license.

Both are facing multiple charges including possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Officers found a bag of marijuana Kansa admitted to throwing out of the window of the Jeep.

Damage was sustained by the Jeep and a Campbell police cruiser.

Reports say Horvath refused to pull over when officers first approached the car and was driving without his headlights on.

Officers forced the Jeep to stop at the intersection of Shirley Road and Center Street.

Police had to pull Horvath out of the driver’s side window and shot him with a taser to get him to comply.

Kansa waived her right to remain silent and told officers about the bag of marijuana they threw from the moving car.

Police found the pot and took it into evidence.
