CLEVELAND - A man on the run tried to hide from police by breaking into a women's prison overnight.
Garfield Heights police said they tried to stop a Pontiac G6 for failure to signal during a turn. After that, the story took a turn.
According to the police report, Ricky Flowers, 20, Gabriel Huston, 20, Mitchell Buyers, 19, and Lamar Sullins, 19, lead officers on a chase through several cities at speeds upwards of 90 mph.
During the chase, the driver lost control of the car several times and spun out at least three times. Finally, the chase ended at a women’s prison on East 30th Street and Broadway Avenue.
Buyers and Sullins fled on foot, but were arrested almost immediately. Huston and Flowers started climbing the prison’s barbed wire fence.
Newburgh Heights police shot Huston with a Taser gun. Flowers made it to the other side, but found himself trapped inside the prison walls.
EMS took Flowers to the hospital after he shred his arm on the razor fence. Police said he needed 36 staples and stitches.
All four boys are in custody facing several charges and more are coming for the seven bags of marijuana found on one of the passengers.
The driver of the car told police he didn’t pull over because he had a suspended license and he didn’t want his mom to find out he was driving the car.
When prison officials found out what happened, they vowed to also press charges against everyone involved.
