Michigan City, IN) - A fleeing suspect in Michigan City lost his pants and a foot race Tuesday night. Near the area of Pine and 11th Streets, Michigan City Police stopped a Mercedes Benz, out of which popped a passenger who made a run for it.
Between buildings, four officers and a K-9 chased the suspect, who was later identified as 21-year-old Omar T. Glover of Michigan City. Glover tried to escape by jumping a fence behind a house, but his pants caught on the chain link, and he tumbled pants-less to the ground.
During the chase, officers recovered a handgun that Glover had allegedly dropped, along with suspected marijuana. After further investigation, police later charged Glover with four counts of dealing cocaine.
The arrest was a result of the new Violent Crimes Reduction Initiative launched this year by Chief Dion Campbell in response to increased shootings around Michigan City.
