Shoplifter Chase.

North Olmsted PD had a shoplifting incident on Oct. 16 in which the suspect vehicle was last seen on Columbia Rd. northbound into Westlake. At 7:38PM, a Brantwood Dr. resident reported that a car had driven through the retention basin behind her home and was now stuck. The driver nearly struck a WPD officer on foot who responded to that call, and the pursuit was on. The suspect fled eastbound on Westwood Rd., south on Clague Rd. back into North Olmsted, and then east on Lorain Rd. into Fairview Park, where WPD called off the pursuit. Later that evening, NOPD arrested the 19-year-old North Olmsted man driving. WPD contemplates filing Assault on a Police Officer charges against him.

The 46-year-old Rocky River man then took off eastbound on Center Ridge Rd. when signaled to stop. He fled (albeit rather slowly) into Rocky River, where RRPD put out stop sticks; he stopped near his home on River Oaks Dr. and was arrested for OVI. He gave a .175 breath sample; other charges include Driving Under Suspension, Fleeing and Eluding, Wanton-Willful Disregard of Safety, and No Seat Belt.
