WARREN

Regardless of what the courts do with Marcel Tipton for purportedly hitting a bicyclist New Year’s Day and driving off, he’ll spend at least four years in prison.

On Thursday, Judge Ronald Rice of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court sentenced Tipton, 27, of Douglas Street, to four years in prison for violating the terms of his probation on a 2010 conviction.

In addition to reportedly hitting Harold Rice, 46, of Warren at the intersection of Summit Street and Tod Avenue Northwest, causing Rice to have broken bones and other injuries, Tipton also had several other arrests in recent months in several other communities, court officials said.

Tipton is on probation from a 2009 incident in which he fled from police on a stolen motorcycle and wrecked it on Palmyra Road in Warren Township.

Tipton was convicted of felony charges of failure to comply with the orders of a police officer and receiving stolen property in that incident and was placed on five years’ probation.

Tipton still faces charges of failure to stop after an accident and tampering with evidence in the New Year’s Day incident.
