One man is facing a slew of charges after a chase that crossed state lines early Wednesday morning.

According to Wheeling Police, Bridgeport officers tried to stop Dontae Green after he ran a stop sign in Bridgeport. Green kept going and led Bridgeport Police on a chase that crossed state lines and went into Wheeling.

Green had originally told police his name was Dontae Ewing. His true identity was revealed on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say he did not get too far in Wheeling, and ended up crashing into a Bridgeport Police cruiser. Green got out of his car and tried to run from officers, and his car hit a building at 8th and Market Streets.

A Bridgeport officer caught up with Green and tased him, and Green reportedly choked the officer.

Green was arrested and booked into the Northern Regional Jail. He faces charges of driving recklessly, felony fleeing and assault on an officer.
