Brett Farris, 45, of Sandusky, was arrested and charged with a slew of offenses Friday evening after a brief but busy chase near Fourth, Third and Wildman streets.

His charges: driving under suspension; driving left of center; possession of marijuana; possession of drug paraphernalia; obstructing official business; resisting arrest; tampering with evidence; and failure to comply with police orders.

He remains in the Erie County jail without bond.

Sandusky police tried to pull over a Chevy Equinox at about 9 p.m. Friday on First Street, but the vehicle took off, speeding along Fourth and Third streets and some crossroads before tearing through three blocks of grassy field. The vehicle came to a halt when it ran headlong into a knot of brush and trees near Wildman and Third streets.

The driver then bailed, taking off on foot across a grassy field, also tossing some marijuana onto the ground along the way, police said.

After a foot chase of about 150 to 200 yards, officers caught up to Farris. They zapped him with a Taser when he refused to show his hands, police said.

He was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser, but Sandusky paramedics soon loaded him into an ambulance when he began to complain of chest pains. He was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center briefly before heading for the Erie County jail.

When police asked him why he fled, Farris replied, "I don't like police."

Officers found suspected drug paraphernalia in the crashed vehicle.

Police asked him "whey" he fled? Same old problem with proof reading.

Matt Westerhold

Thanks for the catch, transplant. The typo has been corrected. 

transplant

Matt, I always catch them. Maybe you should hire me to proof read for you.

YoMamma

What a looser! I bet he is a wonderful person and maybe even a preacher at church. Typical trash scum that infests our city.

There you go again

"Looser"? Looks like another non-proofreader.......

There you go again

But he does seem like a loser.....

Common Sense

One has to wonder why he doesn't like police. Perhaps it has something to do with his childhood. After all, "he's a good boy who just fell into the wrong crowd", .....right?

santown419

He got to know people like you and your kind.

TonyTone

I knew the entire family 20+ yrs. ago when I was a crackhead. I have been clean & sober 4 yrs. now. Anyways, Brett is Vince Randleman's half brother. Cop killer Kevin is their cousin.

YoMamma

Ok... loser. Sorry about the typo. Maybe he likes jail where he is looser with all the "girls"!

mikeylikesit

im sure he was just on his way to church & "the man" just couldn't leave him alone..
