The vehicle was located Wednesday, and the driver identified, police said.
Elroy Harrington, 53, was charged with eluding by flight, obstruction and numerous motor vehicle offenses.
He was released on a summons, under bail reform.
Police thanked the public for their help, saying they received numerous tips and information that lead to the driver's identity.
"Ryan and I would like to thank everyone who helped us during this ordeal," Lori McHale said. "Everyone who shared the posts, shared tips with the police and we would especially like to thank Hamilton Township police, especially Officer Jacobi and the dispatcher that stayed on the phone with me during the initial ordeal.
"We are hopeful that (Harrington) will not be allowed to drive for a long time to come," she added. "If and when he does get to drive again, we pray he takes that right seriously and be more careful in the future."
