Fleeing Driver Calls 911 And Asks Police To Quit Chasing Him Or He Would Shoot People Ohio

by Stephen Rivers

The suspect threatened to shoot a couple of people and take his own life or to drive into oncoming traffic if officers wouldn’t stop tailing him.

Calling 911 is something that most people hope they never have to do. For one person in Toledo, his call to emergency services ended up getting him far more attention from the police than he was hoping for. Instead of convincing the police to stop chasing him, they ramped up the pressure due to the nature of his call.

That man is a 37-year-old out of Holland, Ohio, and police initially spotted him at about 1 am in the morning around the intersection of Auburn and Bancroft. Authorities say that he was standing by a car with its lights off and they initiated contact based on a series of recent break-ins in the area. That’s when he hopped into his Honda Civic and sped away.

The ensuing chase covered dozens of miles over the course of about an hour. At some point in the process, the man thought he might try calling 911 to get the police off of his tail. “Why are they chasing me,” he can be heard saying on his call to dispatch. The threats started to really fly after that.
