Man who fled from car, entered woman's home turns himself in

MERIDIAN - A man who sparked a manhunt in Meridian turned himself in at a local emergency room Thursday night. 

The search for the 45-year-old started after police say a man ran into a woman's home after he fled from his broken-down car.

Meridian Police Lt. Jeff Brown said the incident was called in at around 4:12 p.m. 

The suspect was reportedly "spinning cookies" in his car when it stalled, blocking both westbound lanes of Franklin Road, west of the intersection with North Nola Road.

The man ran from his car to a home in the 100 block of North Nola Road.

The woman at the home was able to get away with her child, run down her driveway and meet with police, who were immediately on scene. 

According to investigators, the suspect then entered the woman's home. Law enforcement searched the home with K-9 officers and were unable to find the suspect.

He turned himself in at the ER at about 8:30 p.m., and was admitted to the hospital "for undisclosed reasons" according to police. 

Meridian Police say the suspect will be booked into the Ada County Jail once he is medically cleared. His name has not yet been released.
