An Ohio man who allegedly raced into a preschool day care center during a police chase in Warren, Ohio, has a criminal record going back more than a decade, according to FOX 8 in Cleveland. 

Police body camera footage allegedly shows Lamar Mitchell, 39, running from police into the preschool and jumping into a playpen where children were playing with toys.

Children can be heard crying on the video as a woman yells “Oh my God!” Officers tell staff to get the children away as they secure Mitchell.
