Suspect in custody after early morning escape

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -  A man who escaped police custody early Thursday morning is back in custody after a nearly eight hour search.
 
44-year-old Eric Stanislaw's attorney walked him into the Mahoning county jail just before 11 a.m.
 
Lt. Dan Valentine with the Beaver Township Police told 21 News Stanislaw was uncooperative during an OVI arrest.

Lt. Valentine also said that when Stanislaw was in the police cruiser, he somehow managed to knock the car window off the track, making it easier to escape.

Officers originally cuffed him with his hands behind his back although he also managed to slip the cuffs in front of him.
Stanislaw escaped behind the Youngstown Mail Distribution Center here in Downtown Youngstown.
 
Eric Stanislaw will now be facing vandalism and escape charges along with his original OVI charges.
 
This is not the first time Stanislaw has been in trouble with the law.
 
In 1997 he was found guilty of a DUI in Struthers and in 2007 he was indicted for breaking and entering, which was later reduced to aggravated trespassing.
 
Stanislaw has open cases in Struthers municipal court from November of 2012 for domestic violence, resisting arrest, obstructing justice and is due in court next week to face an OVI charge.
 
Stanislaw is also set to go on trial in Mahoning county court later this month on another obstructing official business charge.

We'll continue to follow this developing story.

    A former Campbell mayor is in trouble again, but those who fell victim to his latest alleged scam probably wouldn't know it was him.  That's because George Krinos is accused of operating under the name "George Nicholis" when he allegedly offered home improvement work such as roofing and remodeling as an employee of Windows, Doors, Kitchens, and More.
