Boy, 13, accused of crashing car into house

Published: Thu, June 9, 2011 @ 12:05 a.m.

Staff report


Police arrested a 13-year-old boy who is accused of crashing his mother’s car into a neighbor’s house — and then arrested his brother, mother and his mother’s boyfriend.

Reports state that an officer on patrol just after midnight Wednesday noticed a Mercury Mountaineer had struck a home at 90 Wilda Ave. and went to investigate. The officer interviewed Tiffany Marie Hardin, 34, of 92 Wilda Ave., who said her son took the car without her permission and that her son’s friend was a passenger when the vehicle crashed.

The boy, of Orrin Avenue in Youngstown, said he had his mother’s permission and he tried to turn into his mother’s driveway when the front tire got caught on the curb and he turned the wheel, accidently pressing the accelerator instead of the brake, police said.

The boy was issued a citation for driving without a license and failure to control, in addition to being arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Police said they interviewed the passenger, Jasan D. Martin, who provided officers two different names. Realizing this, police arrested Martin, 18, of Youngstown, and charged him with obstructing official business. A search of Martin during the arrest revealed suspected cocaine, according to reports.

It was during this time, reports state, Martin was identified as Hardin’s boyfriend and Hardin became upset and argumentative, and officers gave her a court summons for obstructing official business.

Her 16-year-old son ran at officers during his mother’s arrest and said officers should arrest him, too, which they eventually did, charging him with obstructing official business and resisting arrest. The boy was released into his mother’s custody.

Meanwhile, Martin was in the cruiser and had white powder on his fingers after trying to shove suspected cocaine behind the seat of the cruiser, according to reports.

Police said two additional felony charges — tampering with evidence and possession of cocaine — were filed against Martin before he was taken to Mahoning County jail and bond set at $13,000.

Hey DonkeyKong11 has a point

One which unfortunately not everything that's written in a apprehension report or the press is true. Hence on quick review the charges alleged in this story aren't accurately reflective of whats filed on the record.

To include not all officers are morally fit to serve either. However, what's being reported is the initial layout and thus far the only side that the public has to go on and draw inference from.

Where on review cocaine isn't a substance those leading wholesome lives have interest or by choice associations with. There seems to be a series of conflicts with whom alleges their connections are as well as who know and or didn't know what among them as well. To include it appears Ms. Hardin, has either a or some friends downtown Youngstown.

However, if what's being reported is true. There's no defense for whats stated to have occurred. And if it's not it would contend all the individuals would presume the officer had a personal issue with them for whatever reason. In regards to alleging the patrolman have falsely depicted them in such a way.

As to pit either the son or the mother as a non credible liar. In conjunction with alleging he planted cocaine on a subject, and conveying via statements and possession. The 34 year old mother or the alleged 18 year old is or isn't in a relationship and even has a conflict of interest. Which all but contends the officer fabricated, staged, falsified or even caused the accident.

Now that wouldn't only take some doing to sift through and be the result of one heck of a vendetta. But it'd also require a keen individual to substantiate a total discreditably of the officer. Which is a stretch to say the least and one I'd absolutely have to see, hear and witness being tried at trial to prove such an allegation / contention and or theory.
