BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio — A Cleveland man has been charged after allegedly stabbing a Broadview Heights police officer during a foot chase after an attempted vehicle stop on I-77 near Rockside Road Wednesday morning, leading to an officer-involved shooting and the hospitalization of the man and two officers.

On Wednesday after 2 a.m., an officer from the Broadview Heights Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle on I-77 northbound. The vehicle eventually stopped near Rockside Road.

When the vehicle stopped, a passenger, later identified in court documents as Cleveland resident Michael Stout II, ran from the vehicle across the northbound and southbound lanes of I-77.

Broadview Heights police officer Ryan Tieber, a 20-year veteran, chased Stout on foot. An officer from the Independence Police Department responded and assisted in the foot pursuit.

While attempting to arrest Stout, Tieber was stabbed in the face and head multiple times by Stout, according to police. Another officer, not identified by police, used a Taser. It was ineffective, which is when the officer-involved shooting occurred.

Both officers and Stout were transported to MetroHealth Medical Center.

The driver of the vehicle that was stopped by police was taken into custody.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded and will lead the investigation.

According to a complaint filed in Parma Municipal Court, Stout has been charged with obstructing official business, resisting arrest, and felonious assault.
