Both Steele and McTeer were arrested on unrelated charges in Montgomery County Monday and were then transported back to Preble County, where they were charged with Breaking and Entering and Theft.

Steele is booked in the Preble County Jail.

An investigation revealed that McTeer got into a fight with a passer-by who stopped to check on him after he crashed the truck. Deputies believe he was attempting to take the passer-by's vehicle. He was taken into custody after attempting to run away from deputies.

McTeer was booked in the Preble County Jail on a preliminary robbery charge.

The vehicle theft is under investigation.
