WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police in Warren arrested a Ravenna man Monday evening after they said he lied about his identity and led officers on a foot chase.
Police came up to a car parked against the Big Apple Supermarket on Youngstown Road around 7:30 p.m. and asked what they were doing. Officers said there were two children in the backseat.
According to a police report, the driver, 32-year-old Adam White, and the passenger were inconsistent with their story and the information wasn’t adding up.
Officers said they asked for White’s identification, but he said he didn’t have it. The Social Security number he gave them was someone else’s, according to the police report. Officers said he also gave them the wrong name and birth date.
They found out who White really was after talking with someone who knew him. Police said White had one last chance to tell them the truth.
At that point, officers said White took off on foot and they chased after him.
As one of the officers began to catch up to White, he pushed the officer away and hit him in the face, according to the police report.
Police arrested him when he finally surrendered and laid on the ground.
White was taken to Trumbull County Jail and charged with obstructing official business, resisting arrest, falsification and two counts of assault.
