Campbell man arraigned on various offenses

BROOKFIELD — A Campbell man was taken into custody and charged with a host of offenses Tuesday that sprang from a menacing investigation into a police chase followed by an assault on and resisting police officers.

Derrick Austin Wallace Moore, 27, of Tremble Avenue, Campbell, was arraigned Thursday before Trumbull County Eastern District Judge Marty Nosich on felony charges of felonious assault, felony assault, three counts aggravated menacing, willful eluding of police and vandalism.

At the arraignment, Moore pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault, resisting arrest, aggravated menacing and criminal damaging charges.

Nosich set Moore’s bond at $500,000 and set a preliminary hearing in the case for Jan. 20 because Moore did not waive his right to a speedy trial. In Ohio, incarcerated prisoners must be tried within 90 days of arrest.

Trumbull County jail records show Moore was booked into the Warren lockup at 8:36 p.m. Tuesday and he remains there.

A Trumbull County 911 report states Hartford police were called out at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after a Chevy Lumina involved in an earlier menacing investigation turned up in the parking lot of an Orangeville store. The Lumina managed to escape the traffic stop in which it collided with a police cruiser, reports show, and an ensuing chase found the vehicle turned over in a ditch.

Reports show Moore then resisted and fought with officers during the process of getting him in custody. One officer was kicked and sustained minor injuries. The police cruiser sustained minor front-end damage.
