Standard "COP" TV show stuff, with a twist
Police high speed chase, bail out, foot chase, dead end, scale a fence -- into a prison yard. :rofl:
Man, Fleeing Police, Jumps Fence Into Prison - WXIN
GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio - A into a prison yard!
It happened around 1 a.m. Monday morning, after Garfield Heights Police say they tried to pull over a driver for failing to signal.
Police say 20-year-old Ricky Flowers, II, took off on a high speed chase, reaching speeds of more than 90 miles an hour.
The chase spanned several communities and two local interstates, I-480 and I-77, before ending up in the most ironic of places, The Northeast Pre-Release Center for Women at E. 30th and Broadway.
The men jumped out of the car and took off on foot.
Police say Mitchell Byers, 19, and Lamar Sullins, 19, ran down a dead-end ally and were captured by police.
Gabriel Huston, 20, tried to scale the fence at the womens prison, but was tasered by police from another department.
Ricky Flowers managed to jump the fence but that's where his luck runs out.
"He ended up in the prison yard," said Capt. Robert Sackett.
"He was apprehended. He had no where to go. It was a little easier to get in than get out, apparently."
An alarm immediately went off inside the prison yard and officers were able to arrest Flowers.
They say this chase, that ended in a prison yard, goes down in history as one of the dumbest moves by a suspect.
"They're not all this easy to catch," said Sackett.
Police say Flowers initially fled from police because he was driving on a suspended license.
Now he and his three passengers are facing a slew of charges, including fleeing and eluding and obstructing justice.
