WARREN — A Greenville, Pa., man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge connected to a July 22 police chase from Brookfield to Warren Township.

Edward L. Hammons III, 22, will be sentenced by Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Andrew Logan after the completion of a background investigation by the adult probation department. Hammons faces a maximum 18-month prison term on the charge of attempted failure to comply with the signal of a police officer.
