Investigators said the chase ended when the van hit a fence at a home near West South Street and South Lee Avenue.

Deputies said it is not clear whether there was ever a kidnapping victim.

Deputies said Black faces charges of leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, reckless driving and resisting an officer without violence, and fleeing and eluding.
