HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN)- A man was arrested following a chase in Trumbull County Tuesday night.
Derrick Moore, 27, of Campbell, was booked into the Trumbull County Jail on charges of failure to comply, vandalism, felonious assault, assault and resisting arrest.
According to police, the incident began when officers got a call accusing Moore of driving by a house in Hartford and sending threatening messages to a man inside.
He then went to Yankee Lake Inn in Brookefield where he got into a fight with a co-worker and left, according to police.
Officers located Moore in the parking lot of Wilson’s General Store and initiated a traffic stop but Moore took off, hitting a cruiser and nearly hitting an officer as he pulled out of the parking lot.
A chase ensued and officers lost sight of Moore until they found a car overturned on Hayes Orangeville Rod.
When officers approached the wrecked car, they found Moore in the backseat drinking a Four-Loko beverage, according to the police report.
Moore was ordered out of the car at gunpoint but then began to resist arrest, according to the report.
Moore was put in the back of a cruiser with the help of a volunteer firefighter where he continued to threaten officers and bang his head.
Reports say that while Moore was being combative with police an officer was kicked in the chest.
