Moped driver charged with 5 felonies after South Side crash
YOUNGSTOWN — A Youngstown man is charged with five felonies and other charges after a police chase involving a moped.
The episode began early Thursday in Coitsville and ended in Youngstown when the moped crashed — injuring its rider, who police say was carrying a gun.
Coitsville police Chief Michael Morris confirmed that 29-year-old Trenton Nored is charged with felonious assault, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon, having a weapon as a felon, failure to comply with order or signal of a police officer, operating a vehicle under the influence, driving under suspension and driving left of center.
A Campbell Municipal Court official said Nored will be arraigned at 9 a.m. today.
Morris gave preliminary details of the chase that started near McCartney Road and Woodland Avenue.
Officers tried to pull over the moped over because it had gone left of center.
The low-speed chase went all the way into the South Side of Youngstown with reports saying the moped crashed around 3 a.m. near East Indianola Avenue and Rush Boulevard.
Preliminary reports had conflicting details about whether the gun was fired, or discharged in the crash, but Morris said he will file a final report on the incident today.
Nored, who was shown in his Mahoning County jail booking photo with a bloody bandage on his jaw, was taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital for treatment of his minor injuries.
Court records show Nored, who listed an East Philadelphia Avenue address, had 2018 cases of possession of drugs and driving under suspension out of
Mahoning County Court in Boardmant.
