PARMA, Ohio (WJW) — A 30-year-old man is behind bars after he was accused of causing a crash while trying to evade police on Saturday.
According to the police department, Dalonte Rakim Wysinger was originally pulled over by police for allegedly harassing people at a church function and driving recklessly.
During the stop, he refused to give his driver’s license to the officer.
The officer then realized he had a misdemeanor warrant out for his arrest and asked him to get out of the vehicle, but Wysinger reportedly sped off instead. The officer did not engage in a pursuit.
Not long after, police said he was involved in a bad accident at the intersection of West 54th Street and Snow Road. Two people suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Wysinger has been charged with one count of aggravated vehicular assault.
