Warren man indicted


Thomas I. Sledge, 38, of Cranwood Drive Southwest was indicted Tuesday on failure to comply with the orders of a police officer, being a felon in possession of a firearm, tampering with evidence and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle related to a Nov. 29 police chase.

Police said they saw Sledge’s car fail to stop at a stop sign at Palmyra and Risher roads. Officers made a traffic stop but Sledge drove off, throwing a handgun from the vehicle and knocking down a stop sign.

Sledge wrecked into a telephone pole on Lener Avenue and ran, but was captured on Delaware Avenue.
