YOUNGSTOWN – Mahoning County’s Common Pleas Court Judge Anthony Donofrio overturned bail on a town man now charged on two police fleeing cases, one of which involved a crash that killed a former Youngstown State University football player became.
At the request of Mahoning County prosecutors, Judge Adrienne D. Washington Jr., 20, of Hudson Avenue after Hudson was arrested Saturday afternoon on charges of launching a vehicle and starting a car chase on the South Side, rescinded.
He was charged Monday in Youngstown Municipal Court on charges of flight and flight, drug possession and misdemeanor that impeded official business.
In that incident, a Youngstown police officer and an Ohio State Highway Patrol soldier were patrolling the South Side as part of a resource-sharing drive aimed at reducing violence in the city when they saw Washington’s car not turn signal.
They attempted to do a traffic stop, but Washington escaped and almost collided with another vehicle before Washington escaped from the car on foot but was captured.
In February, Washington reportedly escaped at high speed and crashed into a car driven by former YSU soccer player Darius Shackleford, 24, when it pulled into the intersection of McGuffey Road and Oak Street, killing Shackleford.
