MASSILLON, Ohio — A welfare call about an allegedly intoxicated man walking shirtless around homes in Massillon with a wheelbarrow ended Thursday with a police pursuit and crash.
Police responded to the 1300 block of 3rd Street Northeast just after 6:30 a.m.
When officers arrived, the man jumped into a nearby Dodge pickup truck and drove off. Dash camera footage of the pursuit shows the truck driving erratically through the city before crashing into a utility pole and stopping in a ditch in Jackson Township, authorities said.
The video shows the man crawl out of the passenger side window and run away with his arms flailing.
Police nabbed him after a short foot chase.
The man was charged with OVI and fleeing and eluding, according to police.
