Fleeing suspect drives right into Ohio prison’s parking lot

Police in Ohio say a Michigan man who drove away from a traffic stop smashed through a gate and landed right in a prison parking lot.

Officers arrested the man early Wednesday after he drove around the outside of the Toledo Correctional Institution and then back into parking lot.

Court records show that the charges against Jason Davis of Monroe, Michigan, include vandalism of government property, drug possession and failing to use his turn signal.

Police tell The Blade newspaper in Toledo that they were able to arrest Davis after his vehicle ran over stop sticks that deflated his tires.

Court records do not indicate if Davis has an attorney. A telephone call to his home was not answered.

The 33-year-old is due in court Thursday.
