The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is offering a reward for information which would lead to the capture of fugitive Jamale Thompson.

Thompson is wanted by the U.S. Marshals and the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office. Thompson is wanted for two counts of felonious assault on a police officer and failure to comply with an order. It is alleged that back in February of 2012 Thompson led Cleveland Police on a high speed pursuit driving on sidewalks and cutting through parking lots causing numerous collisions and nearly running over several pedestrians. Thompson then forced a police cruiser off the road and rammed another police car before bailing out of the vehicle he was driving, and fighting with police. After a brief struggle, Thompson was taken into custody. Thompson was released on bond and failed to show back up to court.

Thompson is a 25-year-old black man standing approximately 6'00" and weighing 225 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Thompson is believed to be hiding somewhere in Cleveland. He also has a previous address near the 3500 E. 106th St. in Cleveland.
