Crash nets Warren man prison term

WARREN — A Warren man who crashed a stolen vehicle after a police chase from northern Trumbull County into downtown Youngstown in July, received a one-year prison sentence after pleading guilty Wednesday to a charge of failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer.

Cameron M. Corbett, 25, of McMyler Street NW, appeared before Trumbull County Common Pleas Court Judge W. Wyatt McKay, who also suspended Corbett’s license for three years. The judge said Corbett faces a possible two years of parole supervision after serving his prison term, which will be consecutive to a six-month term handed down earlier this month by McKay for a domestic violence conviction.

The cases against Corbett involve incidents that began shortly after 4 a.m. July 11. Trumbull County 911 dispatchers sent sheriff’s deputies to a state Route 5 address in Johnston to check on a 21-year-old woman who may have been a victim of a domestic incident.

Dispatchers later directed deputies to the Speedway in Cortland, to which the woman had walked.

The woman told deputies her live-in ex-boyfriend — identified as Corbett — was intoxicated, and had pushed her down the stairs, causing her to break several items in the home, according to a police report. The man then threatened further injury if the woman called 911.

The report states the man took the woman’s phone and keys and got into her Chevrolet Impala and drove off. The Ohio State Highway Patrol then pursued the Impala for about 10 minutes at speeds that reached 112 mph. The driver crashed on Boardman Street in downtown Youngstown, totaling the car, reports stated.
