FBI joins search for pimp who tried to run over deputies

The FBI is looking for an armed and dangerous man they say failed to stop for police during a prostitution arrest and attempted to run over law enforcement.

Cuyahoga County sheriff's deputies attempted to stop Dwayne Fair the night of Jan. 23. According to the Sheriff's Office, one prostitute was arrested in the sting. They described Fair as a pimp.

When deputies attempted to stop him, he disregarded them, attempting to run over law enforcement present at the scene, according to the FBI.

He was driving a gray or silver Hyundai Sonata with a license plate of JFY4954 that sustained substantial front and rear damage in the incident.

Fair is a black male who is 5-foot-7 and 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

During the incident, Fair also threatened to kill deputies. Deputies confirmed that they fired shots at Fair's car, but it's unclear if he was injured.

Fair is wanted for promoting prostitution, felonious assault on a police officer and human trafficking.

When Fair fled, it was one year ago to the day that he was caught up in a separate but nearly identically run sting by Cuyahoga County.

That time he fled police, running into a K-9 vehicle before escaping arrest. He would later be caught and convicted and put on five years probation.

No officers were injured in the incident.

Reward money is available for information leading to Fair's location, arrest and prosecution. Tipsters can call the FBI's Violent Crime Task Force at (216) 522-1400 and can remain anonymous.
