CLEVELAND — A man was arrested after he injured two officers with his vehicle in a McDonald's parking lot Tuesday afternoon, according to Cleveland police.

Around 2:30 p.m., officers were flagged down by a manager of the McDonald's in the 5600 block of Memphis Avenue who reported an unconscious man in a vehicle in their parking lot.

Officers, as well as Cleveland EMS, approached the running vehicle and attempted to speak to the man.
