BROOKLYN, Ohio A man led Brooklyn police on a high-speed chase but short chase that ended in a crash that sent a car crashing into a Cleveland bar. Driver fled because he had a warrant out for his arrest, police said.
The chase began about 9 p.m. on Tiedeman Road and Memphis Avenue. An officer tried to stop the car because there was a warrant out for the arrest of the person whose name is on the car's registration, police said.
The Buick pulled into a gas station, slowed down at a gas pump and sped off onto Memphis Avenue, according to the dash cam video released on Monday.
The car sped east on Memphis and drove through several red lights, including one at the busy Fulton Road intersection, the video shows.
After crossing Fulton, the driver crashed into two cars, sending one into the front Murphy's Law bar just east of the intersection, Cleveland police said.
Both people inside the car ran. Parma and Cleveland police tried to help Brooklyn find the duo but they were unable to. One person was taken to an area hospital for precautionary reasons, Brooklyn police said.
Police said they are searching for the owner of the car in order to interview him. Police unnamed evidence from the car and sent it to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation to be analyzed.
