Chase Leads To Arrest Of Ohio Couple

An Ohio couple is behind bars after deputies say they led them on a chase in Carteret County.

Deputies say a man, a woman and two children were in the car that they tried to stop Sunday evening in Cape Carteret for speeding on Highway 24.

At one point in the chase, the car pulled over, only long enough for the woman and two kids, ages 12 and 14 years old, to get out of the car.

The chase ended when the car ran into a large electrical box in front of the BB&T.

Brian Groves faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, after deputies say he tried to strike a Cape Carteret patrol car during the chase. The Marysville, Ohio man is also charged with flee to elude arrest, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, resisting an officer, child abuse and numerous traffic violations.

Deputies also arrested the woman, Gretchen Groves with resisting an officer.

Authorities say the two were in a stolen car and both were wanted back in Ohio on several charges.

Both are in jail on $67,000 bond and are waiting a return to Ohio. The couple's children are in the process of being transported back to Ohio to family members.

    What goes around, comes around. Seems like both of them must have been on drugs for years, probably dealing to use. Heard he's 4 time ex-con loser. Good luck to the three kids ;-)

    Her parents have tried but Ohio kept the kids with the parents. He has been in trouble with the law since he was a teen. Has been offered help. NO HOPE. Deserves to be locked away and not put back on the streets. check this link. just part of the trouble for mr groves and mrs groves. don't think he will last in jail

    The chase actually continued on foot after Groves hit the electrical box, taking out the traffic light at Old Hwy 58/NC 24 intersection. It didn't end until an off duty Cape Carteret officer ran Groves down on foot behind a house on Taylor Notion Rd. They didn't get out of the car until they had hit the electrical box, and the wife and 2 kids ran to divert Law Enforcement's attention from Groves.

    BJ- I sometimes wonder why the family gets the kids, but often the family has tried to protect the kids, keep the kids, report the situation and the "system" is what fails them. I hope this is the situation here.

    The kids are heading back to Ohio to be with FAMILY ? Where was this FAMILY when their dad was hooking up his drugs and leaving the state WITH the kids ? NO QUESTIONS were ever ask I'm sure. At least he was finally stopped and maybe he'll get some help somewhere b u t most likely NOT.

    agrees with mom.. it's really sad that we have to have issued licenses for fishing, hunting and even driving..etc but no requirements for being a parent except the creation and giving birth to them.
