Wanted Brighton Man Apprehended Following Foot Pursuit

A foot pursuit early Sunday afternoon with Washington authorities has landed a Brighton man behind bars. Just after 1pm on Sunday police attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle with no license plates around the intersection of East 7th Street and North 3rd Avenue in Washington when the male subject exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Following a short chase, 40 year old Ehren Schneider of Brighton was apprehended.

Schneider was charged with possession of burglar’s tools, an aggravated misdemeanor, and interference with official acts, a simple misdemeanor.

The likely reason he fled was because he was also wanted for a felony charge of domestic abuse assault-third or subsequent offense.

Schneider is being held without bond at the Washington County Jail. Charges for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia are pending lab results.
