Elyria – Police arrested 24 year old Dominique Milton of Elyria early Friday morning after he crashed into a house in the 900 block of Clark Street.

Elyria Police Officer Jim Sword was on his way to a disturbance call on South Abbe when he spotted a car on Clark Street traveling at a high rate of speed and blowing through stop signs. Sword alerted his Dispatcher that he would have to make a traffic stop on the vehicle before going to the other call. Once he turned on his lights the car sped up even more and when the driver, Milton, attempted to make a left turn onto Boston Ave he went up over the curb, got airborne and struck the house at 904 Clark Street.

Sword approached the car and after calling for an ambulance and the Fire Department he tried to get the occupants out as the car was smoking heavily. With the doors locked and the driver unable to unlock it Sword told the driver to cover his face and then broke out the window.

According to the report Milton quickly became violent with Officers calling them motherfuckers and bitches. Milton was told he was under arrest and continued to resist Officers by pushing and pulling at them. Officers then had to pepper spray Milton to bring him under control. Once Milton was cuffed he was taken to the Police station where he submitted to a breathalyzer test blowing .183%.

Milton’s passenger who was complaining of pains in her leg was treated on scene by LifeCare Paramedics and then transported to Elyria Memorial Hospital.

Milton was charged with OVI, BAC, Resisting Arrest, DUS and Reckless Operation.

Officer Sword was also injured while attempting to bring Milton under control.
