WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, OHIO: An Ohio sheriff’s deputy has resigned a day after an inmate escaped custody, stole a vehicle and died in a crash during a police chase.

Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth says the deputy who resigned Tuesday had lost a key during a jail scuffle Monday. WBNS-TV (http://bit.ly/19Q6TIL ) reports an inmate later used that key to free himself from restraints.

Authorities say 27-year-old David Payne of Lynchburg escaped while being taken to a hospital and stole a vehicle. He led officers on a chase at speeds topping 100 mph before a deputy used “stop sticks” to flatten the vehicle’s tires.

Authorities in Pickaway County say Payne was thrown from the car when it went off the side of a road and rolled several times.
