Published: Thu, February 21, 2013 @ 3:05 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A man and a woman will likely be arraigned Friday in Youngstown Municipal Court, charged with leading police on a high-speed chase throughout the city Wednesday.

Richard Ditosto, 20, of Youngstown is charged with resisting arrest, fleeing and eluding police and failure to comply with the signal or order of a police officer. Chiana Sharpe, 23, of Columbus was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear.

According to police, officers spotted Ditosto driving a Pontiac Sunfire with only one headlight shortly after 9 p.m. on the Madison Avenue Expressway. Sharpe was a passenger in the car.

Police attempted to stop the car, but reports say Ditosto accelerated nearly causing an accident on Wick Avenue. Ditosto, reports said, continued running through intersections on the North and East sides at a high rate of speed with police close behind.

She was driving a Sunfire, isn't that the type of car that ran over all the people last week or so. It's time to ban GM cars because they cause people to do crazy and stupid things What do you think?
