Youngstown man about to be sentenced arrested again

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown man convicted for a traffic crash that left a woman paralyzed, is arrested again, just moments before he is about to be sentenced for the other crime.

20-year-old Charles Allen was due in court at 9:30 on Wednesday morning to be sentenced for a car crash that left a passenger in his car paralyzed.

However, court proceedings did not begin until after 10 a.m. because Allen was delayed during a confrontation with police and deputies.

Prior to his hearing, Allen was apprehended outside the court house with his girlfriend, 26-year-old Latesha Hines.

According to police, Hines was driving Allen to his sentencing when an argument erupted over a parking spot. As the fight escalated, Allen reportedly clung to the hood of the car as Hines attempted to drive away.

When Youngstown Police and the Violent Crimes Task Force stopped the vehicle, they learned the Hines did not have a valid driver's license.

In addition, police say Hines was carrying a large amount of heroin in her purse.

Hines has been arrested on charges of heroin trafficking and driving without a valid license.

When Allen finally was brought into court, he was sentenced to 17 months in prison.

Allen pleaded guilty earlier to charges of aggravated vehicular assault and failure to comply with a police officer.

The charges were filed in June of last year where Allen jumped from his car when police attempted to pull him over.

The car went out of control and crashed, leaving his passenger, Tei'osha Taylor, paralyzed.

It is unclear at this time whether Allen will face any charges related to Wednesday's heroin incident.
