MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee police say a man who tried to elude officers by hiding on a sixth-story window ledge is in critical condition after he slipped and fell to the ground.
Police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz says officers tried to stop the vehicle of the 36-year-old late Wednesday morning. She says he sped off and fled into his building a few blocks away.
Schwartz says officers went to his apartment, where they were allowed entry by an occupant who knew the man. She says they found him hiding outside a window, hanging onto a ledge.
She says officers tried to pull him to safety but he continued to struggle, eventually slipping and falling six stories.
He was wanted for a parole violation. Authorities say drugs were found in his vehicle.
