A Connecticut man involved in a high-speed police chase through Boardman and who fell from a motel balcony during his arrest is going to prison.

Montrell Holmes, 25, was sentenced on Friday to 37 months in federal prison after pleading guilty earlier to assaulting a law enforcement officer.

A federal grand jury issued an indictment against Holmes in November.

Holmes was one of the suspects in a high-speed police chase through Boardman, which resulted in damage to a police cruiser and a minor injury to a Boardman police officer.

Holmes was found by U.S. Marshals at a Days Inn in Niles where Marshals struggled to arrest him resulting in both Holmes and a Marshal falling off a balcony of the motel.

In December the Mahoning County Grand Jury handed up an indictment charging Holmes with Robbery, two counts of Failure to Comply with an Order or Signal of a Police Officer, Receiving Stolen Property, Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Obstructing Official Business, Resisting Arrest and Contributing to Unruliness or Delinquency of a Child.

That case is on hold due to the federal charges.
