Cleveland Police injured during chase

Four Cleveland Police Officers were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center after crashing their zone cars during a police chase early Saturday morning.

According to Cleveland Police, officers observed a white vehicle blaring loud music and bass and attempted to make a traffic stop at East 2nd Street and Frankfort Avenue around 1:42 a.m.

The vehicle, transporting three males, slowed down for officers to approach. While approaching the vehicle, the driver placed his hands near his waistband area and was advised to show officers his hands. The driver did not comply and sped off nearly running over two Cleveland Police officers.

The officers jumped back into their zone cars and called for assistance. They followed the suspects, who ran through stop signs in the area of West 3rd Street and West 6th Street.

The vehicle stopped in a parking lot at 720 Frankfort Avenue. The driver, James Brewer II, 23, of Cleveland, bailed from the vehicle and was arrested. The rear passenger remained in the vehicle and was taken into custody. The third suspect bailed and ran on foot. After a brief police chase, the third suspect was also taken into custody.

It's unknown at what point the Cleveland Police officers crashed.

All four Cleveland Police officers were transported to MetroHealth Medical Center where they were treated and released.
