Cleveland.com says it all started when Lorain police officers arrived at a house after getting a call about a man “in distress.” Upon arrival and running his information through the system, it was discovered that the suspect, 30-year-old Brandon Pettry, was wanted by the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office for breaking and entering.
The officers took Pettry into custody and brought him to a parking lot where they were going to hand him off to Lorain County sheriff’s deputies. But Pettry wasn’t about to go quietly. He instead proceeded to attack the LEOs at the scene.
