Police: Woman tried to run over 2 cops

Published: Mon, July 23, 2012 @ 12:06 a.m.

By David Skolnick



A 41-year-old Youngstown woman faces multiple criminal charges after police said she tried to run over two police officers and a woman on the South Side.

Charlotte Moreland of Elbertus Avenue purposely crashed her Pontiac Bonne- ville into the parked car of a 25-year-old woman at 4:47 a.m. Sunday on West Prince- ton Avenue, police said.

The two officers and the woman, who was providing police with information about a theft, had to jump out of the way not to get hit by the car traveling at a “high rate of speed,” police said.

Moreland “appeared to intentionally accelerate” and drive toward the officers and the woman, according to a police report.

A woman was inside the car when Moreland drove the Bonneville into it, police said. Moreland’s vehicle hit the parked car’s front door, which was open at the time, causing the door to bend back, police said.

Moreland, driving with a suspended license, also crashed into a police cruiser.

The two police officers — Mohammad Awad, 28, and Jerry Fulmer, 34 — who had to jump out of the way got into that cruiser and at gunpoint ordered Moreland and a female passenger to get out of the car, police said.

Moreland and her passenger said the other woman and her friend in the parked car “jumped” them at the nearby Jokers Wrath Motorcycle Club on Market Street, and they were challenging the two to another fight, according to a police report.

Moreland is in the Mahoning County jail pending an arraignment today on three counts of felonious assault as well as one charge each of driving with a suspended license and reckless operation.

No one was injured, and no one else was arrested.

Moreland made news in April 2007 for a family tragedy. Her 3-year-old daughter, Cherish, was the victim of a drive-by shooting in Youngstown. The girl was kept alive by artificial means for a month. Also, one of her sons, Raymond R’Amel Emmanuel Hayes, 17, was murdered in November 2011 in the city.

So because her children have passed away gives her just cause to harm others?

Not sure if they found the cockroaches who did that to her children, but I know I would be searching everywhere for them, and would till the day I died, instead of hanging out at Jokers Wrath Motorcycle Club and getting into fights, not to mention driving with a suspended license.

She hasn't had enough violence in her life she has to go out and create more? Maybe she should stop hanging out at biker clubs and try a little home time.

Who is caring for her other kids while she is in jail?

Was Lt Kevin Mercer in on this stop? They are the worse officers on the YPD! Just ask Prosecutor Dana Lantz! Lt. Mercer threatened to kick her butt! exact words from Prosecutor Dana Lantz: Lt. Mercer continually uses his size, and his black belt training and his rank to bully and intimidate people. This pattern of conduct causes me to believe Lt. Mercer intends to follow through with his threat. I fear for my safety and the safety of my family. In this case he threatened me in front of defendant's defense attorney to handle the case the way he wanted in violation of Ohio Revised Code 2921.04, a felony. What a jerk and bully this renegade, rogue cop is. If Lt. Mercer and Officer Mulligan answered the call, her mother just might get beat up! How can we as good citizens go along with this? These words comes from Prosecutor Dana Lantz.

redding sees no problem with what this person did. Obviously it must have been the cops fault for being there! I think redding is going to be an obnoxious follower on every article that involves YPD since they think they have no business arresting people

There are some real stupid people commenting on here. want to read another paragraph about Lt. Kevin Mercer? True facts. From Attorney Terry A. Grenga: In the witness statement of Attorney Terry A. Grenga, she stated that her attention turned to loud screaming in the office. She states, Assistant Prosecutor Dana Lantz was discussing a case with Det./Sgt. Mercer; the conversation turned very loud with Det./Sgt. Mercer screaming at Prosecutor Lantz that he would do what he had to do. Lantz then asked him what he meant, as it sounded like he was threatening her." This man's character speaks for itself. I got more if you care to read it.

Don't believe everything being stated by YPD. Some other police officers stated that Lt. Kevin Mercer makes them put what he wants in reports. DOCUMENTATION TO THIS TRUE FACT! If they don't comply with Mercer, they could be dissaplined.

Disliking Lt. Mercer has nothing to do with what that woman did. She's a disrespectful and evil person. Who would purposely run over people? It takes a lot of b---s. Get her away from respectful society and put her in the can. Thank God those 2 officers weren't hurt!

Wow no thats crazy talk. Lt. K. Mercer is one of the most upstanding, outstanding Officers at YPD. Lt. K. Mercer has done more for the city of Youngstown than could ever be expressed in words. If every Officer in the area had the drive and deterimination to stop crime as Lt. Mercer did Youngstown would be the Gem of Ohio. Unfortunately people are able to bad mouth good cops they know nothing about just because someone they know got put in jail. YPD Ohio's finest...

Wow people are really stupid. They hear something from someone else and its automatically true. I guess people don't understand there's always gossip and rumors anywhere. I know for a fact Kevin Mercer is an amazing cop who does his job to the best of his ability and like the one person said he has more drive and determination then half of the other cops out there. So basically I'm just saying before you start saying things about other people (Kevin Mercer) maybe you need to get your facts straight.

Sincerely, His daughter
