Springfield man allegedly leads police on chase with child in car

A Springfield police report indicates they have a suspect in the chase but were not able to arrest him. A warrant had not been issued for his arrest, according to the Clark County Municipal Court Clerk of Court.

The police report says officers began their investigation at around 6 p.m. Wednesday when they spotted a parked car with expired tags. Officers said they were familiar with the car and its driver, noting in the report he had run away from a traffic stop he was involved in as a passenger last week.

“At this time, (officers) stayed in the area and observed the vehicle leave the curb and head eastbound on Oakwood Place,” the report says.

Officers wrote in the report they then attempted to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled from police on East Grand Avenue.

The report says the vehicle traveled 45 miles per hour in a 25 mph zone and led police to Clark Street before the driver bailed, leaving the car in drive.

“When officers came to the vehicle they observed a female … in the front passenger’s seat with her foot reached over the seat pressing the brake. (The woman) started yelling ‘help me, help me’ the car is still in drive.”

Officers were able to park the vehicle. They found a 7-year-old child in the car with the woman.

While police were investigating they said White arrived on scene and told officers that the car was stolen.

“She told officers that she had last seen her vehicle parked in front of her residence at around 10 a.m.,” the report says. “She also advised she had not given anyone permission to have the vehicle.”

Officers had the woman fill out a statement, but said they had prior knowledge that White was the man’s sister and that she was allowing him to use the car, according to the report.

“After speaking with her further she admitted that the vehicle was not stolen,” the report says. She said another brother notified her that her car had been stopped.

White was arrested at that time. Officers were not able to locate the man during their investigation at the scene.
