Elyria – Police Officers were flagged down Friday night on Cedar Street and informed that a car had just crashed and was lying on its side in the front yard of 126 Cedar St.

Officers found a blue VW Beetle resting on its passenger side and spoke with 19 year old Tyler McLean of Wakeman who stated that he was the passenger in the car at the time of the crash.

McLean told Officers that he had been drinking at a friend’s house and that his friend 17 year old Michael Jessup, also of Wakeman, had been driving at the time of the crash.

Officers found Jessup running down along the Black River. Jessup ignored Officers orders to stop and continued running but was caught after a short foot pursuit.

Officers were able to gently get the car back onto its wheels and began their investigation. While inspecting the inside of the vehicle Officers were able to determine that McLean was the driver based on the driver’s seat being pushed forward and the heights of the two men. Jessup also told Officers that McLean was the driver and the only reason he fled was because he was afraid of being arrested because he had been drinking.

McLean was given a blood alcohol test and blew .126.

McLean was cited for OVI, Underage Consumption and Reasonable Control.

Michael Jessup was certified as a juvenile and charged with Underage Consumption and Obstructing Official Business.
