With Ft. Mitchell Police Officer Standing Inches Away, Driver Speeds Off

A Ft. Mitchell Police sergeant narrowly escaped being hit by a vehicle after a traffic stop on I-75.

Police received a call about an alleged shoplifter at Crestview Hills Town Center on Saturday afternoon and Sgt. Mike Gross of the FMPD spotted the suspected car on northbound I-75. He stopped the car at Kyles Lane.

After talking for just a few moments, police said, the driver sped away into heavy traffic as Gross stood just inches from the vehicle. 

FMPD is asking the public for help in locating the driver, seen in the photos at the top and bottom of this article.

Police believe the car is from the Dayton, Oh. area and that it is not registered to the woman in the photos. 

Call Kenton County Dispatch at 859.356.3191 with any helpful information.
