Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson’s great-grandson charged with shooting at police

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Another member of Mayor Frank Jackson’s family is in trouble with the law.

19 News reported that two teens were arrested for shooting at officers, while leading them on a chase in a stolen car on Wednesday night.

According to court records, one of them is Jackson’s great-grandson.

He’s a juvenile, so we are not identifying him by name.

We asked the juvenile court system if Jackson’s great grandson’s been in any trouble before, and we’re waiting to hear back.

Jackson’s grandson was also recently in trouble with the law.

According to Cleveland Municipal Court documents, Frank Q. Jackson was charged with aggravated menacing, attempted drug abuse and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle. He’s due back in court Monday.

Several council members weren’t willing to comment on this subject. So, it is clear that not everyone supports the Mayor and his troubled family.

Jackson’s spokesman, said he would try to reach the mayor for comment but never got back to us Friday night.
