Police from five depts. work to nab father, son

BROOKFIELD — A father and son were arrested Tuesday morning after a police stop and a chase along Addison Road in Brookfield that required the help of five police departments.

Brookfield police Chief Dan Faustino said Albert L. King III, 28, of 721 Syme St., Masury, was wanted on a domestic violence charge by local police and also had several outstanding warrants from Trumbull County and from Kansas City, Mo.

King III was also wanted by Brookfield police for charges of leaving the scene of an accident on Jane Street on Jan. 9, where he is accused of abandoning a truck he crashed into a mailbox and a utility pole.

Brookfield police said they were called to a fight at 8207 Edmond St. on Nov. 25 and were told there was a fight between King III and his father, Albert L. King Jr. The younger King fled the residence by the time police arrived.

Faustino said someone tipped police that King III and his father King Jr. were traveling in a pickup along Addison Road shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday. Police stopped the vehicle but as police were trying to handcuff King III, his father allegedly helped him escape and King III ran into the woods.

King Jr., who police said was instructed to stay at the scene along Addison Road, left when a patrolman began chasing King III in the woods.

Assistance was provided from Sharon, Hubbard Township, Hubbard and Vienna police, Faustino said. Vienna police caught King III as he came out of the woods along state Route 82. He was charged with domestic violence from the Nov. 25 incident, with driving under suspension and with leaving the scene of an accident for the Jan. 9 accident.

King Jr. was contacted later in the day Tuesday and turned himself in at the police station. He was charged with obstruction of justice.
