A Brooklyn man who allegedly tried to get away from police Friday night during a traffic stop by running into the middle of Interstate 80 faces a resisting arrest charge.
State police said they found that Eric Cooper, 30, was wanted on a felony warrant from New York and went to arrest him when he tried to run. Police said he was apprehended in the center of the interstate, near mile marker 160 in Boggs Township, then carried to the berm and handcuffed.
Cooper was the passenger in a car driven by Shevon Nurse, no age available, of Warren, Ohio.
Police said Nurse gave them false information about her identity, for which she will be arrested.
Police said they found two vials of anabolic steroids, a vial of testosterone and 15 syringes after searching the car.
In addition to resisting arrest, Cooper faces charges of drug possession and reckless endangerment.
Online court documents show that Nurse hasn’t been charged yet.
