Driver Escapes on Foot (2008)
The city police department is reviewing a dashboard video of a 20-minute, high-speed chase Saturday night to determine whether the pursuit should have been allowed to continue. The chase followed a traffic stop in Niles in which the driver, identified by police as Harley Tibbs, 28, of South Street, Niles, was pulled over for speeding on U.S. Route 422. But when the Niles police officer approached the 2002 Chevrolet Blazer, Tibbs took off, turned right on state Route 46 and then left on Mines Road, authorities said. By this time, the Niles police officer had been advised by his supervisor to end the pursuit. Officers at that point had information on the owner of the car. The officer followed behind at a distance without lights and siren in order to advise where the vehicle was headed, according to Niles police. A few minutes later, at about 8:30 p.m., the vehicle headed into Warren, where Patrolmen David Weber and John Marks Jr. spotted it on South Street near state Route 169. After traveling a few blocks on South Street, the officers saw fellow officer Detective Sgt. Michael Merritt pulling onto South Street ahead of Tibbs’ vehicle and contacted him to help stop the vehicle. Merritt stopped his police investigations van at a green light at the intersection with Pine Street near the Warren police station, while Weber stopped his cruiser along the left side of the SUV. As Merritt and Marks got out of their vehicles to apprehend Tibbs, Tibbs drove forward, hitting the rear of the police van and driving over the sidewalk to escape into the police department parking lot, Warren police said. The vehicle proceeded north on Park Avenue with Weber in pursuit but Marks no longer in the vehicle. By about that point, Warren police had identified the driver. Twenty minutes later, after a high-speed pursuit that followed Champion Avenue, State Road, Templeton Road, U.S. Route 422, Leavitt Road and several other — mostly rural — roads, Tibbs crashed the SUV at the intersection of Braceville Robinson and Eagle Creek roads in Braceville Township, police said. Capt. Tim Bowers of the Warren police said he had begun to review the videotape and other information on the chase to determine whether officers made the right choice to pursue Tibbs. Weber’s vehicle, which was equipped with a “push bumper,” also crashed into the rear of the SUV, causing a small amount of damage to the cruiser. No injuries were reported, though the Niles policeman reported that he narrowly escaped having his foot run over. Weber gave a brief foot chase for Tibbs but Tibbs was not found. The female passenger in the vehicle, the registered owner of the vehicle, was still inside at the time and told officers she didn’t know why Tibbs fled. Tibbs was arrested Sunday and arraigned in the municipal courts in Niles and Warren on charges including felonious assault, failure to comply, fleeing and eluding, and driving under suspension. He remains in Trumbull County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $225,000.

With lights and sirens blaring, officers try to stop the car. But the Camaro, driven by 18-year-old Kyshaud Cox with 18-year-old Marvin Johnson in the passenger seat, steps on the gas. "Going about 40 miles per hour on NW 4th avenue, NW 4th street!!" The car speeds through several stop signs in a residential neighborhood. And then... "He just crashed, he just crashed, he just crashed, He just crashed!" Cox loses control of the car. It fishtails and crashes into a chain-link fence surrounding Poinciana Elementary School. Officer Connor Haugh approaches the car, and is nearly hit. Haugh fires several shots at the vehicle and assisting Officer Rayner De Los Rios fires one shot.

Wielding knives, and claiming to have a gun, two young men descended on the 81-year-old woman, demanding the keys to her white sports car, Barton said. "I screamed for two minutes but nobody was there," said Barton, a former high-fashion model who described herself as "pretty feisty." But her swimming partner was in the restroom and Barton eventually relented, handing over the keys. The men, later identified as Kyshaud Cox and Marvin Johnson, both 18, sped off and Barton called police. Boynton Beach officers spotted the car heading eastbound on Boynton Beach Boulevard. The suspects took police on a short chase through local neighborhoods, but crashed into a fence at Poinciana Elementary, 1203 N. Seacrest Blvd., police said. Officer Connor Haugh approached the car but was nearly struck when the driver hit the gas and the Camaro's front end swerved, police said. Haugh then fired several shots at the vehicle. Another officer at the scene, Rayner De Los Rios, also fired one shot at the vehicle. No one was injured. Both officers have worked for the department since May 2006 and have been placed on routine administrative leave. Officers arrested Cox and Johnson and found a knife and the woman's change purse, police said. Both men are charged with armed carjacking and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle. Cox, who drove the car, is also charged with fleeing or attempting to elude the police and driving without a license. Both men are being held at the Palm Beach County Jail. Barton said she hasn't seen the extent of the damage to the Camaro, but said she has "a $500 deductible, so let's hope it's not too damn much." The Camaro only has about 23,000 miles, she said. "I was born in Detroit and I love jazzy cars," Barton said. As for her night swimming, which sometimes brings her to the pool as late - or early - as 2:30 a.m.: Barton said she doesn't expect to kick that habit. In fact, she said she'd be back at the pool Friday night. "At my age, the weight piles on and it's always in the belly and the ass," she said. "That's why my girlfriend and I need to go swimming."

HIGHWAY SHOOTER ARRESTED 2007
A man who fired two shots at a motorist on Interstate 15 in Idaho earlier this year has been sentenced to a maximum of 14 years in prison. Jose Merced Zamora, 27, pleaded guilty in March to one count of aggravated assault, one count of using a weapon in the commission of a crime and one count of fleeing police. He was sentenced Monday. Zamora, who was wanted by authorities in Yakima County, Wash., was arrested Feb. 5 after firing two shots at a pickup traveling north on the eastern Idaho interstate. When troopers attempted to stop Zamora, he sped off and led police on a chase that reached speeds of 100 mph before it ended near Idaho Falls when his tires were spiked and he rammed his car. Two Bonneville County deputies were hurt in the accident. Zamora is wanted in Yakima on charges of second-degree murder and second-degree assault in connection with the death of Ole Owens, 17, in 2002. Authorities say Zamora had been at large since fleeing the home where the shooting took place. Bingham County Prosecutor Scott Andrew said he expects Idaho authorities will honor a request to have Zamora extradited to face charges in the 2002 slaying. "A request could take a month, three months - they could do it tomorrow," Andrew told the Yakima Herald-Republic.
