Tue. 3:29 p.m.: Man literally falls into police’s hands after eluding them
YOUNGSTOWN (AP) – A man who ran from a traffic stop and then found himself clinging by his hands to a window ledge has been literally caught by police waiting below.
Youngstown police say Dai’ryon Mitchell, 21, jumped out of a car and ran Sunday afternoon when officers responded to a report of multiple gunshots having been fired.
Police say officers chased Mitchell into a home and, while hanging by his hands from a window ledge, tried to pull himself inside when he saw two officers beneath the window. Mitchell instead lost his grip, fell into the officers’ arms and was arrested after a brief struggle.
Mitchell has been charged with felony fleeing and eluding. Court records don’t indicate if he has an attorney.
