High-speed Lakewood police pursuit ends with suspect crashing Cutlass into home

LAKEWOOD, Ohio - What began as a domestic dispute in Lakewood turned into a high-speed chase and ended with the suspect crashing his car, sending him to the hospital.

Authorities in Lakewood got a all from a woman reporting a man had assaulted his girlfriend and the caller at a home in the 18000 block of Detroit Avenue. The caller said the man took off in a silver Oldsmobile Cutlass.

Shortly after the call, police spotted the car eastbound on Clifton and Nicholson swerving, almost striking several parked cars. 

Officers turned their lights on and tried pulling the man over, but he refused to stop, taking police on a high-speed chase down Clifton.

Eventually, the 31-year-old driver went off the road and hit a home in the 9000 block of Clifton.

Barnes was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Charges are pending.
