MENTOR -- There is no such thing as a "routine" traffic stop, according to most police departments, and Mentor is no exception.
On Sunday, according to the department's Facebook posting, an officer attempted to stop a car whose owner had a suspended driver's license. The driver failed to stop and continued into Mentor-on-the-Lake, where he pulled into the McDonald's.
The driver was verified to be the owner, Walter Frazier from Cleveland.
He got out of the car and was argumentative, according to police. The officer asked him to stay in his car several times, but Frazier refused, according to police.
The officer attempted to take him into custody and a struggle ensued where the officer was injured, receiving a cut on his knee and bruises on his leg.
Frazier was not injured.
The officer was able to hold Frazier down until officers from Mentor-on-the-Lake arrived to assist, according to police.
Frazier was charged with driving under suspension, failure to comply and resisting arrest.
