YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A man wanted on a felony warrant by Campbell police led officers on a chase from Campbell to the South Side on Thursday, police say.
Marquell Armour is in Mahoning County Jail after police tried to pull him over for a busted tail light and he fled, according to a police report.
Campbell police Lt. Kevin Sferra said an officer tried to pull a car over at about 12:25 p.m. at McCartney Road and Courtland Avenue for a traffic violation, and the officer learned through a records’ check that the man was wanted on a warrant.
The man refused to stop and led police on a chase to Interstate 680, then Meridian Road and the Mill Creek Park.
Troopers of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Youngstown police and Mill Creek MetroParks Police also took part until the car stopped at Glenwood and West LaClede avenues, where the driver was taken into custody.
When Armour finally stopped, he refused to unlock his door, so police broke the driver’s side window to arrest him.
Police found marijuana and $1,726 in the vehicle. Armour was treated for minor injuries from breaking the window.
Armour was charged with failure to comply, possession of drugs, obstructing official business and drug paraphernalia. His arraignment is scheduled for Friday morning.
