WATCH: Toledo police arrest man on out-of-state warrant for indecent exposure to minors

Police took the 54-year-old Michigander into custody after he gave pursuit and attempted to bite an officer.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Editor's note: This article has been updated to reflect new information made available by Toledo police, including dashcam and bodycam footage. 

The Lucas County Warrant Squad contacted on-duty Toledo police officers around 7 p.m. Wednesday evening for assistance regarding an out-of-state felony warrant. 

According to a report, police arrived at a motel on W. Alexis Road where they located 54-year-old Jeffrey Prielipp, who had a felony warrant for indecent exposure to minors out of Michigan. Crews attempted to take Prielipp into custody, but he resisted arrest, which led to a vehicle pursuit. 

Police said they were able to stop the vehicle and remove Prielipp from the vehicle. Prielipp grabbed one of the officers and attempted to bite him, but was subdued and taken to a local hospital for evaluation. Authorities then transported him to the Detective Bureau. 

Dashcam and bodycam video released by Toledo police on Monday shows Prielipp's arrest. The video shows Prielipp exiting a vehicle with his hands in the air before crews brought him to the ground and arrested him.

After Prielipp faces a Lucas County judge, authorities will take him back to Michigan. He is being held on a $20,000 bond.
