CUYAHOGA FALLS – An officer seriously injured last month, after a fleeing suspect slammed into his cruiser, is finally going home.

Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief Jack Davis, said Officer Ted Davis, was released from a rehabilitation center Tuesday.

The officer is expected to be off work for several weeks as he continues to recover.

Officer Davis’ cruiser was struck July 23 after the suspect was fleeing from police.

Prior to the crash, the suspect is alleged to have called 911 and threatened to kill law enforcement officers. Police then believe the man drove his red pick-up truck to the department’s parking lot and damaged several vehicles. When he fled from the parking lot, police began looking for him, and that is when he slammed into Officer Davis’ cruiser, police said.

The suspect was also taken to the hospital. No charges have been filed yet and police are still investigating.
