Police Chase Ends Abruptly When Suspect Unwittingly Breaks Into Prison
Garfield Heights Police Department
Ohio police found their jobs made a little bit easier Monday after a chase ended with a suspect unwittingly fleeing straight into a prison.
Ricky Flowers, 20, was stopped by police while driving with a suspended license, but fled the scene and led officers on a high-speed car chase through the Cleveland area, Garfield Heights Police Department told Fox 8 News.
Flowers abandoned the vehicle, took off on foot and scaled a 30-foot fence to seek refuge on the other side -- only to realize he had landed directly in the yard of a women's prison, police told the station.
Police used stun guns to arrest three passengers who also fled from the car, the station reported.
