On 1/16/17 at 3:30 p.m., Officer Daniel Hiser with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s East District was on routine patrol when he observed a 4-door black Cadillac abruptly cut off a vehicle and then turn into a gas station parking lot. Officer Hiser attempted to conduct a traffic stop, by activating his emergency equipment, to investigate the driver’s driving behavior but instead, the driver ignored Officer Hiser attempt to conduct a lawful traffic stop and fled.
A short pursuit ended when the suspect driver ran the stop sign at East 19th Street and vehicle went into the air; once the vehicle hit the ground, the vehicle lost control and went into a yard located in the 1800 block of North Layman where it struck a tree which caused the vehicle to roll onto its side.. The suspect vehicle continued to roll through the yard and eventually hit a Mustang parked in the driveway of the Layman location. After striking the parked vehicle, the Cadillac collided with the front of the house.
The suspect exited the vehicle and ran toward the front door of the house where the homeowner was standing to investigate the damage. The suspect pushed the homeowner and entered his house; where the suspect and homeowner begin to struggle in the living room. The suspect was able to break free from the homeowner’s grasp and continued to flee into the homeowner’s house and into the homeowner’s bathroom. After several minutes the suspect emerged from the bathroom and was immediately taken into custody by Officer Hiser and several responding officers.
Officers did a search of the bathroom and found inside the bathroom two bags of suspected marijuana. Officers also located outside next to the suspect’s vehicle a handgun believed to be possessed by the suspect. Evidence Technician and Gun Liaison responded to process the crime scene and evidence. The suspect identified as 37-year-old Isearron McCloud of Indianapolis was arrested for preliminary charges of possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, residential entry, resisting law enforcement, criminal mischief, battery, driving while license suspended, and possession of marijuana.
The suspect was transported to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center at Eskenazi Hospital after he complained of pain but was subsequently transferred to the Arrestee Processing Center to be processed where he currently is being held. Because of the delay in processing the attached booking photo of the suspect is from an unrelated arrest. Thankfully no significant injuries were sustained by the officer or the homeowner.
