OVI crash: Westford Circle

Officers at 8:45 p.m. Feb. 25 responded to a one-car crash in the parking lot of Sturbridge Apartments on Westford Circle.

A vehicle containing a female driver and her 6-year-old child had missed a bridge and driven into a creek. The water in the creek was low enough that it did not intrude into the passenger compartment.

Officers assisted the driver and child out of the vehicle and noted that the 28-year-old driver appeared to be impaired. An emergency squad took the woman and child to a hospital for examination.https://efec0ce05f7a37c35c0c3ae13d393171.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

The driver, who listed a Cleveland address, was cited for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, child endangering and failure to secure a child in a booster seat. The child was turned over to a sober relative and Cuyahoga County Child and Family Services was contacted.

Disorderly conduct: Crocker Road

DoubleTree hotel employees called police at 6 p.m. Feb. 15 to report that a guest was arguing with clerks and “fake” falling on the ground.

Before officers arrived, the employees updated that the suspect had broken into someone else’s room, which was unoccupied at the time.

Officers discovered that the man was too intoxicated to walk back to the lobby, so an ambulance took him to University Hospitals St. John Medical Center for his own safety.

As officers were responding to the hospital to charge the 23-year-old Westlake resident for his actions at the hotel, the hospital reported that he had run out of the emergency room. Officers found the man running down the middle of Crocker Road.

Officers took the man to the Westlake jail and charged him with disorderly conduct while intoxicated.

Suspected drugs: Clemens Road

A man called police at 11:24 a.m. Feb. 16 to report that he had been staying at the Red Roof Inn with someone else, did not know the other person’s name and now the hotel staff would not let him into the hotel room to retrieve his belongings.

Officers arrived to find the 42-year-old Mansfield resident hiding behind the BP gas station across the street. Officers, speaking with the man and the hotel staff, learned that the payment for the room had been declined, so the occupants were locked out.https://efec0ce05f7a37c35c0c3ae13d393171.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Officers found that the room contained suspected methamphetamine and suspected drug paraphernalia.

The hotel banned the man from the property. Police sent the suspected drugs to a lab for analysis before determining whether charges would be filed.

Criminal damaging: Clemens Road

A DoubleTree hotel guest called police on Feb. 17 to report that her tires had been slashed in the parking lot.

Officers learned that the victim had just gotten into a heated discussion with her ex-boyfriend at the hotel. The 43-year-old Cleveland man walked to the parking lot and left the area. Shortly thereafter, the victim discovered the damage to her tire.

Arrest on a warrant: Crocker Road

An officer at 9:30 p.m. Feb. 12 stopped a vehicle on Crocker Road at Hospice Way after learning that the registered owner of the car was wanted for a felony warrant out of Cuyahoga County.

The 28-year-old Cleveland resident was accused of a parole violation for a sexual offender registration violation. Police arrested him and took him to the Cuyahoga County Justice Center. https://www.cleveland.com/community/2021/02/ovi-suspect-drove-into-creek-with-child-in-car-westlake-police-blotter.html
