Sandusky police officers Evan Estep and Ken Gautschi were driving an undercover cruiser east on Cleveland Road around 3:30 a.m., when Poole flagged them down near Sycamore Line, according to a Sandusky police report.
After officers pulled over, Poole walked up to the car and yanked on a back seat door handle. “I just need a ride,” Poole allegedly said. Poole soon admitted he’d been drinking, then began to walk away, the report said. “I ain’t giving y’all what you need,” Poole said. Officers arrested Poole and later released him to a friend.
