A man is in custody after leading North Olmsted police on a chase near Great Northern mall that led to him losing control of his vehicle with his one-year-old child in the back seat.

The incident took place on Sunday, Feb. 18 at approximately 5:27 p.m. when a North Olmsted police officer attempted to pull over a Chrysler PT Cruiser for a license plate/break light violation on Brookpark Road.

The driver of the vehicle, 30-year-old Antoine L. Lindsey, then attempted to evade police and continued to drive east on Brookpark Road. Just before the suspect reached Clague Road, he lost control of his vehicle, causing it to roll over.

Lindsey was ejected from the vehicle in the crash. When officers checked on Lindsey's injuries, they found a child in the back seat of his vehicle, still strapped into a car seat.

Police say the child did not appear injured, but was taken to a nearby hospital out of caution. Lindsey was also taken to a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

During an initial investigation of the incident, Lindsey was found to have a suspended driver's license and was illegally in possession of a firearm.

Lindsay was charged with the following:

* Failure to comply with police signal
* Having weapons under disability
* Endangering children
