CITED: Brandon Woodburn, age 18, 22046 Norman Avenue, Alliance, Ohio

CHARGE: SCO: 333.03 Assured Clear Distance Ahead

At 21:30 hours I responded to the area of S. 15th Street and W. California Avenue for a reported two-car motor-vehicle accident without injuries.

Upon arriving to the scene, I met with Brandon M. Woodburn, who was the driver of a red 2006 Dodge 2500 (Ohio-Reg HYA 6990). I also met with Brett W. McDermitt, who was the driver of a tan 2001 Ford Mustang (Ohio-Reg JKZ 5122), and his passenger, Maria N. Sams. I was advised that no one had been injured after asking all three involved parties.

In speaking with Woodburn, he told me that he had been driving northbound on 15th street and was waiting for a train to pass, directly behind McDermitt's vehicle. Woodburn said that he had mistakenly believed his vehicle was in park, striking the back of McDermitt's vehicle. Woodburn then provided me with his driver license as well as pulled up his insurance (Geico Insurance Co.) on his phone.

After speaking with Woodburn, I made contact with Sams and McDermitt. In speaking with the two, they again said that they were not injured and that while stopped at the railroad tracks waiting for a train to pass, their vehicle was struck from behind by Woodburn. I did notice minor paint damage as well as cracking to the trunk on the Mustang belonging to McDermitt. McDermitt and Sams both provided me with their Driver Licenses, with McDermitt also providing me with a digital copy of his insurance(Progressive). I then photographed the damage as well as obtained contact information from both Sams and McDermitt. Afterwards, I told them that they were free to go.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation 032295. I cited Woodburn for Assured Clear Distance Ahead (SCO:333.03), for striking the rear of McDermitt's vehicle. Woodburn signed the citation, was provided with his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 within the next several business days for information on how to contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so. I then cleared from the stop. All photographs will be loaded onto the department photos folder in the shared drive with the corresponding case number. NFI.

At approximately 1300 hours on 08-08-2022 I stopped at 696 E. Ohio Avenue to check the status of the two dogs in this case. It should be noted that Ashley Crawford did give me consent to be on the property regarding this matter during her processing after arrest.

Upon arriving to the back yard. I noticed that the lab puppy, Huck, had his cord wrapped around the tree that he was secured to. This giving him approximatly 3' of lead. Also, I was informed by Ptl. Brindack at this time that Animal Charity of Ohio had contacted him earlier in the day.

Because of this, I called the number that Ptl. Brindack had been contacted by and spoke with Humane Agent Jessica MacMurchy. Agent MacMurchey informed me that she was planning on coming to the residence and was on Western Reserve Road at the time. MacMurchy advised an ETA of approximately 20 minutes. I remained standing by with the two dogs, with Humane Agent MacMurchy arriving soon after, accompanied by another agent.

I informed Agent MacMurchy of the facts and circumstances thus far in the case, as well as the fact that Ashley Crawford had signed a release form that surrendered the animals to The Sebring Police Department and any agency or organization that we seen fit. MacMurchy said that because Crawford had surrendered the animals, her agency would take custody of them, providing them with medical care and adopting them out.

MacMurchy then began assessing the dogs, with it being noted that the senior dog, Cooper, appeared to be suffering from severe neglect.

This being evident by advanced mange and severely overgrown toenails. MacMurchy informed me that the toenails in and of themselves would cause Cooper severe pain and discomfort. It was also noted that various insects were crawling on Coopers skin and he had what appeared to be skin irritation on his back. Agent MacMurchy then loaded both dogs into her van. It should be noted that while walking Cooper appeared to struggle on hard surfaces due to the length of his nails. Once both dogs were loaded onto the Humane Agent's van I cleared from the call.

At 0155 hours I, Patrolman Peterman #506, was performing saturation patrol traveling westward on SR 62 when I observed a motorcycle traveling eastward at a very high rate of speed.

Upon observation, I activated my vehicle mounted radar, and observed a speed of 85 and was still going up when I locked the radar in, and receiving a cleat and audible signal. I safely performed a U-turn while activating my emergency lights and audible siren.

The motorcycle stopped and pulled over near South 15th Street. I approached the vehicle, and called out the plate(JOG31) to dispatch. I exited my marked cruiser #303, and approached the operator of the motorcycle, Jared Lyons, and advised him of the stop.

Jared was respectful to me, and advised he had just purchased the bike, and was "testing it out". I asked Jared for is license and documentation, and he was able to procure me with said documents. Dispatch advised me that Jared was still under a motorcycle novice endorsement, and was required to be wearing a helmet until 10/07/2022. I reproached Jared and advised him that I would be cutting him a break, and giving him a warning for the helmet violation, and for his speed he would receive a citation for 75, instead of 85 in a 55mph zone.

I returned to my marked cruiser and wrote Jared on citation #032028 for speed SCO 333.03, advised Jared of his choices on how to contest the citation or pay it, then released Jared from the traffic stop.

ORC 4513.05 Taillights-Illuminating White to the Rear

Court: MCC #3 07/28/2022 @ 0900A.M.

On 07/22/2022 @ 0007 hours I was performing patrolling duties east bound on the 200 block of East Ohio Avenue when I observed a white Chevrolet bearing license plate HQQ4573 with a broken taillight that displayed a white light to the rear when it came to a stop at the traffic light on East Ohio Ave. and North l2th Street.

I ran the license plate through dispatch and was advised the owner of the vehicle also had a suspended license. I then activated my emergency lights and audible siren of marked cruiser #304, making a traffic stop with the vehicle on North 12' Street, near East Wisconsin Avenue. The vehicle came to a slow stop, eventually stopping near the north end of the village limits.

Ptl. Ray #508 arrived on scene as well at this time.

I advised dispatch of the stop, and approached the passenger side of the vehicle. I identified myself, and the reason for the stop of the broken taillight illuminating the white light to the rear. The driver, identified as the registered owner Alyssa Smith, states she knew of the damaged taillight. I then advised Alyssa she was also coming hack in our system as suspended. Alyssa stated to me she had her privileges on her, and procured a tattered document stating she was given driving privileges through Portage County. Upon speaking with dispatch, it was identified that she was suspended through Mahoning county, as well as Portage County.

I asked Sgt. Kelm #SO3 to come to the traffic stop as well, with him arriving a short time later. After speaking with the supervisor, it was determined that the vehicle wou9d be towed, and Alyssa be notified of her privileges being revoked. After telling Alyssa she would be receiving a citation for the suspension, and the vehicle be towed Alyssa became very verbally abusive towards officers, cursing at officers on several occasions. I advised Alyssa to grab any belongings she would need, and to call for a ride for her and her child. I returned to my cruiser and wrote a citation on #032027 for DUS(FRA) ORC 4510.11, and Taillights-Illuminating white light to rear ORC 4513.05. I approached the vehicle as Alyssa was grabbing her belongings, and I advised Alyssa of her citations. Alyssa stated she was refusing to sign, and I printed "Refused to sign" on the signature block of the citation.

Sgt. Kelm then cleared the scene.

Robert Uyselt arrived on scene to pick up Alyssa and her child as Springers Towing arrived for the vehicle. I handed Alyssa the copy of her citation, and of her mandatory court date of 07/28/2022. Alyssa took the citation, crumpled it into her hand, and appeared to throw it.

As I was about to perform a property inventory, Alyssa shouted to officers that she did not consent to any searches. I advised Alyssa that it was a property inventory, and she left the scene with Robert. After Springers Towing cleared, Officers cleared without further incident.

Upon arrival at the station I met with Kylie who was emotional and appeared injured. She stated she was assaulted by her boyfriend / parent to her current child and child she is currently pregnant with. She was offered EMS to which she denied.

She was brought back to the patrol room for the report. Photographs were taken of multiple injuries as well as her torn shirt. PTL. Rhome of Smith TWP PD was requested to assist with the arrest. He met with me on station and assisted with the victim. The report was completed and we went to the residence to make the arrest.

After knocking for several minutes and yelling announcing ourselves. the victim whom established residency stated they would come let us in. This was cleared with a phone call to SGT. Kelm. Attempts were made to call the suspect out with the public address on the cruiser siren. The victim allowed us to enter into the house where we found the suspect (Jake Fullerton) asleep in bed. He was awoken, cuffed, and read his Miranda warning by PTL. Rhome. He was then taken outside to my cruiser.

Kylie was allowed to gather her belongings and exit the residence. Fullerton was taken back to the station where he was verbally uncooperative. His verbal statement was taken and he was transported and booked into Mahoning County Jail.

Nothing further at this time.

On 01/11/2022 this unit observed 2 individuals sitting on a bench in the South Side Park after dark.

Officer Ray #508 01/11/2022

On 01/11/2022, I, Officer Ray, was patrolling west Texas near the South Side Park, when I observed a male walking through the grass.

2 weeks prior I observed the same male walking through the park. The male was wearing a very distinct winter jacket, that I was able to identify both times. The jacket has a triangle geometric pattern with red, white, and blue colors. I turned my cruiser around in the parking lot for the tennis court.

I observed the male sitting on a picnic table with another individual. I stopped my cruiser in front of the community center.

As I exited my cruiser I heard the male yell something to me, but I was unable to make out what was said. As I approached the two individuals they stood up from the bench, and approached me. The male asked me "is there any place we can go that is not the park. She works at Copeland, and I meet her on breaks".

I stated to them that there is not too many places they can meet. I stated to the male that the two of them were trespassing, and that if everything came back ok I would let them sit at the park. At this point I asked them both if they had a drivers license. Both stated no. I asked the male if he knew what his social was. He gave me his social, but was very hesitant to provide that information.

His tone of voice, and body language made me suspicious. The male provided his name as Daniel Allmon. Next I asked the female for her social.

Without hesitation she provided the numbers plus her name, Caitlin Stump. Due to not being able to run socials over the radio I had to return to my cruiser to retrieve my phone. After retrieving my phone I contacted dispatch.

Due to the fact that the bench they were sitting at plus the distance I was away from the individuals I did not observe Daniel walking into the woods.

Dispatch advised me that Daniel had a warrant out of Trumbull County, and that they would take him. I approached the bench again, and observed only Caitlin sitting there. Caitlin stated to me that Daniel had walked away stating "he said he needed to pick his kids up." I asked Caitlin where he would be going, and she stated "I don't know, Salem". At this point I advised dispatch that the male had left. I requested assistance from Smith Township. We searched the area for Daniel, but were unable to locate.

Sgt. Kelm had started his shift, and we met at Royal Star. I advised Sgt. Kelm that the party possibly works at Copeland. Both units went to Copeland in an attempt to locate her.

Upon our arrival we made contact with an employee at the front desk to Copeland. She called the nursing stations, and she was able to locate the female at Crandall. We went over to Crandall, and we located Caitlin on the second floor. I asked Caitlin what she knew about Daniel, and she stated "not much". She continued to state that they are dating, and that she has not seen him in months. At this point I stated that I saw them both together 2 weeks ago. I continued by asking what Daniel's address was. Caitlin stated that she did not know. Realizing that Caitlin could / would not help us both units cleared.

Upon arriving back to Sebring PD it was made known to both units that Caitlin and Daniel share a residence at 825 Wade Ave in alliance. While on station I ran Daniel's social through OHLEG. I was able to see his BMV picture. and was able to identify that it was in fact the male I made contact with in the park.

Nothing further at this time. On my next shift I will speak to the prosecutor about getting warrants on Daniel for trespassing and obstruction.

Traffic / Oak Ridge Motel

CITED: Jacob James, 24, 648 Beltflower Ave, Canton

CHARGES:
4511.22A Slow Speed - Impeding Traffic
4510.11A DUS (Court)
4503.11 Expired Registration
4549.08 Fictitious Tag

On 5/17/2022 at approx. 0145 1 observed a black Pontiac Torrent back out of a driveway and head EB on RT. 62 in front of me between Johnson rd & 15th St.

The vehicle was traveling at a low speed for the roadway and when the driver noticed me behind them they made an abrupt turn into a residence to the left with little warning. The driver turned off all the lights on the vehicle.

I know the vehicle did not belong to that residence because I was just there with Smith TWP the night prior.

The resident there has been having issues with another party so I called PTL. Rhome of Smith TWP PD. I turned into Western Reserve Auto and observed the vehicle back up with no lighting on except the brake lights and reverse lights. They then turned the lights on and reversed into the roadway in front of another vehicle traveling the speed limit (55 MPH). The vehicle was able to brake and not strike the Pontiac. They headed WB back into the village limits on 62, traveling 35 MPH in a 55 MPH zone obstructing traffic. I followed.

When the vehicle approached the parking lot of the Oak Ridge Motel, they slowed to a near stop and made an abrupt turn into the parking lot and parked across two spaces.

I initiated my emergency lights and pulled up behind the vehicle. The reverse lights of the vehicle came on and the driver's door opened. I called for an additional unit and PTL. Rhome responded. I ordered the driver back into the vehicle twice as he argued stating he was just looking for a room.

Upon making a passenger side approach to the vehicle, I noticed the expiration sticker did not look right on the vehicle. I spoke to the driver and passenger. Their story did not add up about why they seemed to be attempting to evade me or the slow speed. They stated they were lost looking for a place to stay when they have established residency in Alliance and Canton.

PTL. Rhome arrived and he gathered information from the driver and passenger and they advised they were both suspended. Due to the driver's (Jacob) driving behavior and the odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle I asked him to step out. He complied, stating that the passenger, (Morgan Thomas), was the one that was drinking. He agreed to complete SFSTs.

I turned off the front facing flashing lights of my patrol car and completed SFSTs with no signs of impairment.

After questioning who's vehicle it was and if they had the registration, they stated they did not have the registration but it was Morgan's Father's vehicle. The plate returned to Roger Thomas but it was expired and registered to a 2006 Ford which did not match. Upon closer inspection of the plate it was discovered that the expiration sticker was homemade and hand written poorly.

The VIN number was then given to dispatch and it returned expired to the driver. Springer's was notified to tow the vehicle.

The driver was cited for the slow speed, DUS, and the expired registration as well as the fictitious plate.

An inventory was completed of the vehicle and was noted on a tow sheet, signed by the tow operator.

The occupants were picked up by Roger Thomas.

After the vehicle was towed, I cleared.

At 11:14 hours on 05-17-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While traveling northbound in the 1400 block of 5. 12'h Street, I observed-a white pickup truck, towing a fifth-wheel trailer that was traveling southbound in the 1200 block of S. 12th Street. The truck appeared to be traveling at a speed that was greater than that of the posted 35 MPH speed limit.

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 52 MPH.

As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, allowed the truck to pass me, and then turned around to initiate a traffic stop. The truck, a 2011 Ford F-350 bearing Ohio Registration PKA 8853, came to a stop at the village limits.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License that showed him to be Caleb Yoder as well as proof of insurance, but was unable to locate his vehicle registration.

On this date at around 22:30 while on patrol I noticed a suspicious vehicle a blue Toyota bearing OH HXX9140 parked behind the library 195 W Ohio Ave. which at the time was closed. Initially it appeared the vehicle was unoccupied however as I used the spotlight in my patrol car to illuminate the vehicle I noticed to individuals who were reclined in the car stick their heads up. I made contact with the two identified as Justin D Joplin and Kimberly N Narney both out of Akron and informed them of the reason for our interaction and asked them what they were doing at the closed library. Justin advised they were using the wifi at the library.

At this point Det. Reed arrived and we asked Kimberly if she would be willing to exit the vehicle and speak with us separately. Kimberly agreed and exited and started speaking with me. She advised a similar story and they were in Sebring to help a friend who had just moved to town.

At this point Ptl. Peterman arrived and continued speaking with Kimberly. I joined Det. Reed and began speaking with Justin who was still seated in the vehicle as we were speaking with him Det. Reed and I noticed several items commonly associated with the use of narcotics, including torch lighters and a stick that could be used for a pipe. We asked Justin for consent to search the vehicle and he said there is nothing in here except this at which point he willing produced a small green bad which had marihuana residue in it.

At this point we advised Justin to exit the vehicle and began a search of the vehicle for further contraband.

At 1657 hours on 05-09-2022, I was dispatched to a report of a motor vehicle crash in front of The Oregon Pub, located at 135 E. Oregon Ave. Upon arriving to the scene, I observed a white Chrysler 2005, bearing Ohio Registration CRK 3625, that had sideswiped a green Chevrolet Silverado, bearing Ohio Registration JJK 1339. Both vehicles were in the eastbound lane of travel, with the green Silverado being parked along the roadside. I also noted that the incident occurred directly in front of 125 E. Oregon Avenue, and not the Oregon Pub as originally relayed.

Upon exiting my vehicle, I made contact with the involved parties, who were standing beside the vehicles. The driver of the Chrysler 200 was a Jerry Lee Quinn. Also present was Jenifer Brooks, the registered owner of the Silverado, and Thomas Brooks. In speaking with Jennifer and Thomas, they informed me that they were sitting on the porch at 125 E. Oregon Avenue, and that they witnessed Jerry travel off of the roadway and strike Jennifer's truck. As I spoke with Jennifer and Thomas, I noted that Jerry's Chrysler had disabling damage. The passenger side front tire had nearly been pulled from the vehicle when it hit the truck.

I did photograph the scene and damage to the vehicles at this time.

I then began speaking with Jerry, who informed me that he had become distracted when he seen Jennifer and Thomas's granddaughter run off of the porch of the residence that they were at. Jerry said that he believed the child was going to run onto the roadway, and that this pulled his attention away from driving, causing him to leave the roadway and strike the parked truck.

I then requested identification from all involved parties, as well as insurance information. Jerry was able to produce an Ohio Driver License as well as a valid Nationwide Insurance Card. Jerry also asked me to call Sebring Tire to have his vehicle towed from the scene. It should be noted that while I was speaking with Jerry, I asked him if he had consumed any alcohol or anything that would inhibit his ability to operate a motor vehicle. Jerry said that he had not, and no indicators of impairment were observed. Jennifer was able to produce an Ohio Driver License, with her telling me that she did not have valid insurance on her vehicle.

Thomas provided me with an Ohio Identification Card.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032283. I cited Jerry for Operation Without Reasonable Control (SCO: 333.08). Jerry signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 within the next several business days for instructions on how to contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so. Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their lot.

Once Sebring Tire arrived and towed the vehicle, I cleared from the call. I did provide Jerry with a courtesy ride back to his residence. NFI.

Court MCC #3 05-05-2022 @ 09:00

At approximately 20:20 hours on 04-30-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304.

While sitting in the driveway of the police station, located at 135 E. Ohio Avenue, I observed a black Pontiac G6 that was traveling westbound on Ohio Avenue at an unusually slow speed. The vehicle then turned right onto N. 15th Street, before pulling into a driveway in the 300 block of N. 15th. I then went to the Huntington Bank building, located at 146 E. Ohio Avenue, where I parked to continue conducting traffic enforcement.

Several minutes later, I observed the same black Pontiac, this time turning left onto Ohio Avenue from N. 15th Street. As the vehicle drove past me, I noticed that the exhaust was extremely loud. I then pulled onto the roadway, activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop. I noted that the vehicle was slow to stop, with it finally stopping in the 200 block of E. Ohio Avenue.

Upon approaching the black 66, bearing Ohio Resistration JIF 7287, I made contact with the driver. I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver was only able to produce his Ohio Driver License, which showed him to be Eric M. Greathouse. I also at this point noted that despite it being after sunset, Greathouse was wearing sunglasses.

In addition to speaking with Greathouse, I spoke with the vehicle's passenger, Matthew Krohn, with him also providing me with his identification.

After determining that Greathouse had a valid driver license, I returned to his vehicle. Pt. Russell had arrived to my location at this time as well. At this point, I asked Greathouse for consent to search his vehicle. Greathouse granted this request, with him going to the rear of the vehicle along with Krohn.

As I began my search of the vehicle, I located a 12oz can of Milwaukee's Best Light in the center console. The can was approximately 1/8 full and cold to the touch. What appeared to be beer was filling the bottom of the center console. The rest of the search yielded no further contraband.

I then asked Greathouse how long the can had been in the vehicle, and how much he had drank this evening. Greathouse stated "too much". He also then said that he was joking, and that he had only consumed two beers earlier in the evening. As I approached closer to Greathouse, I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage, emanating from his person. Ptl. Russell also noted this. At this point, I asked Greathouse if he was willing to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST'S), with him agreeing to do so. Ptl. Russell then walked with Greathouse and I to the front of my patrol car, where the frontfacing lightbar was turned off. I asked Greathouse if he had any issues with his eyes or took any prescription medications. Greathouse said yes, he takes Prozac. He also said that he wears contact lenses, and that they sometimes "pop out".

I then began the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test. Using my flashlight in a downward angle for illumination, I held my right pointer finger approximately 12" from Greathouse's eyes. I instructed Greathouse to focus on and to follow my finger with his eyes, his eyes only, and not to move his head.

At this point I noted no resting nystagmus. I then noted that both eyes tracked equally. As I continued the test, in both eyes, I noted lack of smooth pursuit, onset of nystagmus prior to 45degrees, as well as distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximums deviation.

I then began the Walk-and-Turn Test. I instructed Greathouse to put his right foot in front of his left foot, keep his arms at his side, and not to begin the test until instructed to do so, seeing as I was going to demonstrate it for him first. I then instructed Greathouse that on my command, he is to take nine heel-to-toe steps along an imaginary straight line, counting out loud, before turning and walking nine, heel-to-toe steps back. I also clearly demonstrated how to pivot on the ninth step. During the instructional phase of the test, I had to reiterate not to start until instructed to do so no less than five times, this being because Greathouse continued attempting to perform the test without being told to.

Once he was given the command to start the test, I noted that Greathouse stepped off the line, struggled to maintained balance, did not count the steps out loud, as well as did not touch heel-to-toe.

I then began the One-Leg-Stand Test. I instructed Greathouse to keep his arms at his side, and that on my command to take the foot of his choosing, lift it six inches off of the ground, while counting in a onethousand-one, one-thousand-two fashion until told to stop.

Upon being instructed to begin, Greathouse began swaying, struggling to maintain his balance, and was unable to perform the test. At this point, I informed him that he was under arrest for OVI. Greathouse was secured in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double-locked, before being secured in the back f,car 304. It should be noted that Ptl. Russell witnessed all SFST'S as they were being performed.

Sebring Tire was then called to tow the vehicle to their impound lot. The Ohio State Highway Patrol was also summoned to perform the breathalyzer test. Once back on station, 1 read the BMV 2255 Form to Greathouse, with him following along and signing it afterwards. Trooper Joshua Yeager, of the Lisbon Post of The Ohio State Highway Patrol then arrived on station to perform the breathalyzer test. After completing the test, Greathouse was found to have a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.255. Greathouse also provided a urine specimen for lab analysis.

Greathouse was then fingerprinted and photographed. He received Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032279, which listed his charges of OVI (ORC: 4511,19(A)(l)(a)), OVI High Tier (ORC: 4511.19(A)(l)(h), as well as loud exhaust (ORC: 4513.22). In addition to this, Greathouse received Minor Misdemeanor Citation No. 000265 for open container (ORC: 4301.62). Greathouse signed all of his citations, received his copies, and was informed of his mandatory appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:OO on May 5,2022.

It was also made explicitly clear to Greathouse that his driver license was under an Administrative
License Suspension until at least his first court appearance. After being processed, Greathouse was released on a $1,000.00 own recognizance bond. Amanda Thacker arrived to take him home and ensure that he made it safely. Nothing additional to report at this time.

At 20:03 hours on 05-01-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While traveling southbound in the 700 block of S. lzth Street, I observed a white sedan traveling northbound, at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35 MPH limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 56 MPH.

I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, turned around, and began attempting to catch up to the vehicle in order to perform a traffic stop. I was able to catch up with the vehicle, a white Acura, bearing Ohio Registration JSF 8037, in the 100 block of S. 12th Street.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver informed me that the vehicle was a rental, with him producing a lease agreement to the vehicle. The driver also provided me with his Ohio Driver License, that showed him to be Michael Williams.

CITED: Eugene Dieffenbaugher, 45, 9532 Middlebranch Ave. NE Canton, OH

Charge: ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (OVI)

At 19:17 hours on 04-30-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While patrolling in the 300 block of E. Indiana Avenue, approaching the intersection of N. 13th Street, I conducted a random registration check on a white Pontiac G6, bearing Ohio Registration HQB 8090, that was traveling in front of me. Immediately after relaying the vehicle's information, I noted that it failed to signal within 100 feet of turning at the intersection of E. Indiana Avenue and N. 141h Street. This being as the vehicle made a right turn at that intersection.

Upon seeing this, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. I was also advised by dispatch at this time that the vehicle was registered to a Eugene K. Dieffenbaugher, whose driving status was suspended and who had an active warrant out of Stark County. The suspension was an OVI suspension and that warrant was for county of want only.

The vehicle came to a stop on N. 14th Street at E. Virginia Avenue. Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver, who identified himself as Eugene Dieffenbaugher. I informed Oieffenbaugher of the reason for the traffic stop as well as asked him to turn the vehicle off and exit. Dieffenbaugher complied with this request, with him also allowing me to pat him down and search his pockets. No weapons or contraband was located during this search.

I then requested Dieffenbaugher's driver license and proof of insurance, with him telling me that he did not have insurance on the vehicle and also didn't have a driver license card.

I then instructed Dieffenbaugher to remain outside of the vehicle, while I returned to my patrol car to write his citation. Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032278 was then issued to Dieffenbaugher, who was cited for driving under suspension (OVI). Diefenbaugher signed the citation, was given his copy, and informed of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:00 on May 05,2022.

Sebring Tire was then called, with an inventory of the vehicle being performed. No items of value were located. Due to Dieffenbaugher driving while under an OVI suspension, a hold was placed on the vehicle until his court appearance, with him being informed of this. Diffenbaugher was then released from the stop.

Sebring Tire arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot, with me clearing afterwards.

On 04/30/2022, I Officer Ray, was sitting in the Huntington Parking lot observing the intersection of Ohio and 15th. As a silver Saturn was passing by me, I observed what appeared to be an expired sticker (yellow) on the rear plate of the vehicle. I put my cruiser in drive, and followed the vehicle in an attempt to verify that the plate was expired. As we neared the intersection of Ohio and 12th Street, I observed the vehicle to not have a plate light. I activated my overhead lights, and the vehicle came to a stop in front of the court house. As I approached the vehicle, I observed that the plate sticker was in fact expired. Showing from October 2021.

I approached the vehicle from the passenger side, identified who I was, and the reason for the stop. The driver was identified as Heather Bell. Heather stated that the registration was not expired due to her not having a birthday in 2022 yet. I attempted to explain to her that the registration expires the year that is listed, and not the following year. Heather did not understand that concept. Heather then stated that the registration was renewed, and that the sticker was what the BMV gave her. I advised Heather to contact someone for a ride due to the vehicle being towed.

Dispatch was advised to send a tow. Springers arrived on scene, and took the vehicle. I conducted an inventory of the vehicle, and found nothing, Misc junk, and junk mail.

At 21:27 hours on 04-19-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While stationary along to roadside, observing the intersection of N. Johnson Road and W. Ohio Avenue, I witnessed a dark colored Hyundai SUV travel through the intersection without coming to a stop. The vehicle was traveling eastbound on W. Ohio, approached the intersection which is clearly marked with flashing red lights as well as stop signs, and turned left onto N. Johnson Road.

Based upon my training and experience, the vehicle appeared to be traveling at approximatly 12 MPH when it went through the intersection.

I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle, a gray Hyundai Santa Fe, bearing Ohio Registration HAT 8068, came to a stop on N. Johnson Road near W. Maryland Avenue.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his vehicle registration, proof of insurance, and driver license.

At 00:27 hours on 04-18-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While stationary observing the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. Johnson Road, I observed a maroon Toyota sedan, that was traveling eastbound on W. Ohio, proceed through the intersection without coming to a complete stop. Based upon my training and experience, I estimated the vehicle to be moving at approximately 10 MPH when it went trough the intersection. I then pulled onto the roadway, activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle.

It should be noted that the vehicle was slow to stop, with me having to activated my audible siren several times before it stopped at the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. l9th Street.

Upon approaching the maroon Toyota Corolla, bearing Ohio Registration HZC 9083,l made contact with the male driver. I informed the driver of the reason for the stop, with him saying that he realized he had run the stop sign, and that he was having a bad night. I then requested his driver license as well as vehicle registration. The driver informed me that he did not have either with him. I then asked if he had a valid license, with him telling me that he had just been stopped by The Alliance Police Department, his license was suspended, and that they had cited him. The driver then gave me his name (Daniel Pasco-Windland), date of birth, and social security number.

Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Pasco-Windland's information to dispatch, with it being
confirmed that his driver license was suspended. I then drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032222. I cited Pasco-Windland for driving under suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as obeying traffic control devices (ORC: 4511.12).

Upon returning to Paso-Windland's vehicle, he signed the citation and was given his copy. I also at this point instructed Pasco-Windland to exit the vehicle, because it was going to be towed.

Upon informing Pasco-Windland of this, he reached his right hand between the center console and driver seat, began shuffling around, and then reached into his front right coat pocket. I could not see what he had retrieved, with me ordering him out of the vehicle. Due to the threat to officer safety, I asked for and received consent from Windland to conduct a pat-down of his person. Pasco-Windland then said it had been his nicotine that he put in his pocket.

When I asked if I could enter his pockets to be sure that it was only nicotine that he had retrieved, Paso-Windland said "yeah". At this point I located a plastic container, which contained a light-colored crystalline substance, small spoon, box cutter blade, and rolled up dollar bill. Based upon my training and experience, the light-colored crystalline substance appeared to be methamphetamine.

I then secured Pasco-Windland in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double-locked, before securing him in the back of car 302. It should be noted that I informed Pasco-Windland that he was only being detained at that point and was not under arrest. I then completed an inventory of the vehicle, locating nothing of value and no additional contraband.

Ptl. Rhome, of The Smith Township Police Dept. also arrived to my location at this time. At this point, I decided that the suspected methamphetamine would be sent to The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI) Crime Lab, instead of it being field tested. Because of this, Pasco-Windland was released from detention and sent on his way. Pasco-Windland was informed of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:00 on 04-18-2022. Sebring Tire then arrived and towed his vehicle, with both Ptl. Rhome and I clearing from the stop afterwards.

Once back on station, I photographed the suspected methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia. I also weight the suspected methamphetamine, with it not registering on the department scale. The contraband items were then secured in temporary evidence locker #1. Additional charges possible pending laboratory results.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

The blue Jeep Liberty, bearing Ohio Registration HRU 9807, came to a stop on N. Johnson Road near W. Oregon Avenue. Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I found her to be speaking on her cell phone. I informed the driver of the reason for the stop as well as requested her driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver denied having been on her phone at the time she went through the intersection when I asked. The driver was able to produce an Ohio Driver License, that identified her as Josie Gates, as well as the vehicle's registration. Gates was unable to produce proof of insurance, informing me that the vehicle belonged to her mother.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032223. I cited Gates for Obedience to Traffic Control Devices (SCO: 313.01). I then returned to Gates's vehicle where she signed the citation, was given her copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 within the next several business days for instructions on when to appear for her mandatory court hearing.

I then cleared from the stop. NFI.

Cited: Ryan Bandy, 32, 380 North St. Beloit, OH

Charges:
ORC:4510.11 Driving Under Suspension
ORC:4549.08 Fictitious Plates

At 22:28 hours on 04-16-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While patrolling in the 200 block of E. Ohio Avenue, I conducted a random registration check of a white Chevrolet Silverado, that was in the parking lot of Circle K, located at 205 E. Ohio Avenue. The Silverado, bearing Ohio Registration JLW 5854, showed as being registered to a Ryan Bandy, whose driver license was suspended. From the alleyway between the 100 bocks of E. Ohio and E Oregon Avenues, I watched the truck pull from the business's parking lot and onto the roadway.

I then activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop, The Silverado came to a stop in the rear parking lot of The Brickhouse Bar, located at 206 E. Ohio Avenue.

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the male driver, who I know to be Ryan Bandy. When I informed Ryan of the reason for the stop, he said that he did not know that his driver license was suspended. Ryan was unable to produce proof of insurance and informed me that he did not have his driver license with him. Due to Ryan's body language being indicative of nervousness, I asked him to step out of the vehicle. Once Ryan was out of the vehicle, I observed a folding pocket knife in his left pant pocket. I did take control of this item for the duration of our encounter.

I then returned to my patrol car, where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032224. I cited Ryan for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11). At approximately this time, Ptl. Russell arrived on scene as well. It was also found that the registration that was affixed to Ryan's truck belonged on a 2013 Silverado. When I asked Ryan why this was he said that the registration belonged on his other truck.

On 20March22 I conducted a Traffic Stop In front of 356 N 12th St. Prior to conducting the traffic stop I, (Ptl Melendez), requested a check on Ohio registration (JDB7445). While waiting for a return in the left turning lane on E Ohio Ave and N 12th St I observed a white cloud of smoke coming out of the rear driver side window of the gold 2003 Chevy Impala.

While still waiting for the light turn turn green Sebring Dispatch advised that the owner of the vehicle Deonah Stewart was Suspended.

Upon receiving that information I then conducted a traffic stop with my marked patrol vehicle 302 in front of 356 N 12th St for Window tint and also for the drivers operators license being suspended.

Upon exiting my patrol vehicle I observed a white females face in the drivers side mirror. prior to getting to the drivers side door the white female later identified as Janessa N. Daugherty smiled in the mirror and she pressed the accelerator and proceeded north on 12th St. I then returned back to my patrol vehicle and advised Sebring Dispatch that the vehicle attempted to flee. While sti11 traveling north on 12th St I advised dispatch to start another unit and dispatch advised that Det. Reed of the Smith Township police Department was in route. I then continued to pursue the vehicle north bound on 12th St. The vehicle then turned left going west bound on Middletown Road speeds reached 70MPH with no traffic. The Vehicle then turned left traveling south on Johnson Rd in smith township heading back to The Village Of Sebring.

At this time Det. Reed advised that he was at the intersection of Courtney Rd and North Johnson, while still traveling south on Johnson the vehlcle then tuned right on Courtney traveling west bound almost hitting Det. Reeds patrol vehicle.

Dispatch was then advised to contact OSP and also Alliance Police, the vehicle continued west on Courtney Rd with light traffic conditions and speeds were 70 MPH. Det.

Upon approaching the intersection of Keystone and Union Ave the vehicle ran a red light almost ramming a white utility truck. Sebring Dispatch then advised per Sqt Kelm to terminate the pursuit. I then advised that the pursuit was terminated. After ending the pursuit advised Sebring dispatch to contact Stark County Sheriffs and also Canton Police since the vehicle returns to a Canton address and I returned back to the Sebring Police Department.

At 1935 Hours I was advised by Sebring Dispatch that Canton PD had the vehicle stopped with two subjects detained in canton at the intersection of 19th St and Harrisburg Road. I then contacted Sgt.

While talking with Brown and Hampton Stark County advised that they made contact with the owner of the vehicle and that they were going to meet with her at 3827 Kirby Ave NE in Canton. I then advised Sebring Dispatch that I was going to meet with the owner of the vehicle.

Upon making contact with the owner of the vehicle myself and Deputy Green for Stark County SO asked her to walk over to my patrol vehicle to answer some questions. Prior to asking Stewart any questions I read her Miranda and she advised that she would comply and answer all questions. Stewart began to deny any involvement in the pursuit and she advised that a friend identified as Daugherty was the person operating the vehicle and that she also had text messages to prove it. I then obtained the text messages from Stewart that showed Daugherty was operating the vehicle at the time of the pursuit and also how Daugherty stated that she was going to wipe the vehicle down and also change the color of the vehicle. I then asked Stewart if she could provide a written statement and she complied.

Cited: Joshua Frankos, 32, 11441 Market St. North Lima, Ohio

Charge: SCO: 333.03 Speed (51/35) M-4

At 18:30 hours on 03-22-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary near the loading bay at Famous Supply, located at 350 Courtney Road, I observed a white box van traveling eastbound at a rate of speed that appeared to be higher than that of the posted 35 MPH limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 51 MPH. I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, pulled onto the roadway, and initiated a traffic stop.

The vehicle, a white Ford E-250, bearing Ohio Registration JHB 7003, did not respond to my lights or audible siren until it had neared the intersection of N. 12Ih and Courtney Road. Once the vehicle was stopped, I approached and made contact with the driver. I informed him of the reason for the stop, with him stating "I thought it was 45 on this road". I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver was only able to produce his Ohio Driver License, which identified him as Joshua D. Frankos.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032217. I cited Frankos for speeding (SCO:333.03), for going 51 MPH in a marked 35 MPH zone. A check through LEADS also showed that Frankos had two convictions for moving violations with the past 12 months.

I then returned to Frankos's vehicle, where he signed his citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on when to appear for his mandatory court appearance. I then cleared from the stop. Nothing additional to report at this time.

At 17:22 hours on 03-12-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While in the parking lot of Circle K, located at 205 E. Ohio Avenue, I conducted a random registration check of a red Ford Escape that was in the business's parking lot. The vehicle's license plate, JGK 6756, returned to a Megan Cutlip, from Youngstown, Ohio. The registration showed that it belonged on a maroon Ford station Wagon and had expired on 01-17-2022. I then pulled into the parking lot of Gionino's Pizza, located directly across N. 14th Street from Circle K, and watched as the red Escape drove from the parking lot of Circle K and began northbound on N. 14th Street.

I then activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a stop on N. 14th Street, approximately 20 yards from the intersection with E. Maryland Avenue. I made a passenger side approach and made contact with the male driver and female front seat passenger. I informed the driver of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license. He at this point informed me that his driver license was suspended, with him then producing an Ohio Identification Card that showed him to be Michael Franks.

The female passenger was able to provide me with an Ohio driver license that showed her to be Megan Cutlip, the registered owner of the vehicle. Cutlip did also say that she was aware that Franks's driving privileges were suspended when she allowed him to drive her vehicle.

Ptl. Ray also arrived to my location at around this time.

I then returned to my patrol car, where I was able to confirm that Franks was in fact under an OVI suspension. Cutlip's driving privileges were suspended as well. Once I confirmed the suspension, I returned to the subject vehicle and instructed both parties to begin calling for a ride because I was going to have the vehicle towed. I then returned to my patrol car again, where I began drafting Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032210 for Mr. Franks, which was for driving under suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as expired vehicle registration (ORC: 4503.21). I also wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032211 to Cutlip, who was cited for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle (ORC: 4511.203). While writing these citations, a female subject, later identified as Taylor Burson, arrived on scene to pick up Franks and Cutlip. Ptl. Ray made contact with Burson, who was also found to have a suspended driver license.

While Ptl. Ray was handling Burson's citation, I advised dispatch to contact a towing company to tow the vehicle belonging to Cutlip. Sebring Tire was unable to respond, so K&D towing was summoned.

Ptl. Ray opted not to tow the vehicle belonging to Burson, but to instead allow her to call for a ride. I also at this point gave both Cutlip and Franks their citations, with both subjects signing them, being given their copies, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for information on when they would need to appear for their mandatory court appearances.

Approximately 25 minutes later, Roger Rhome, with K&D towing arrived on scene. Also arriving was a driver who came to pick up Burson, Franks, and Cutlip. Driver was determined to have a valid driver license.

An administrative inventory of vehicle belonging to Cutlip was also performed, with nothing of value being located. The vehicle was then towed to K&D's impound lot with a hold being placed.

Ptl. Ray issued a citation for Driving Under Suspension to Burson.

All parties then cleared from the scene. Nothing additional to report at this time.

On 03/11/2022 While on local saturation Patrol for the Mahoning County OVI Task Force I, patrol Brindack, was driving north bound on N 14th St. near Ohio Ave. I observed a silver in color Volkswagen Passat bearing OH HLU1137 pull out of a parking space near the Brickhouse and pull in front of my patrol car. The vehicle came to the intersection of N.14th St. and E. Pennsylvania Ave. and turn right onto Pennsylvania without using a turn signal.

I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle which continued until just before the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave and 15th St. where it came to a stop.

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver Tiberu Marian and identified myself and informed him of the reason for the stop which he scoffed at. Observed his eyes were glassy in appearance and slightly bloodshot. I also detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked Marian if he had any alcohol to drink tonight and he replied "one beer".

I collected Marian driver's license and paperwork and told him I would be right back, as I was sitting in my patrol car running Marian through dispatch, he exited his vehicle and approached the rear of his vehicle. I ordered Marian to get back and his vehicle and he replied "I'm just making sure you can see my turn signals" and as he turned around to walk back to his vehicle, I noticed him stumble. At this point I Walked over to Marian and asked if he would do field sobriety tests. Marian said he would.

At this point Sgt. Kelm had also arrived on scene.

During the first test the horizontal gaze nystagmus, Marian advised he used glasses but only to read and had no head or eye injuries. During the medical scan I observed Marian had Equal tracking, equal pupil size, and no resting nystagmus. During the HGN Marian was instructed to put his feet together, keeps his arms at his side and to follow the stimulus which was the tip of my pen. I observed lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation in the left eye as well as onset prior to 45 degrees in his left eye, Marian was squinting his right eye the entire time making it difficult to observe and was asked to open further but continued to squint. Marian also moved his head multiple times and looked away from the stimulus multiple times.

During the "walk and turn" I instructed Marian to keep his feet together and place his arms at his side. I explained to Marian he would be taking 9 heel to toe steps in an imaginary line turn around and do 9 heel to toe steps back. I showed him an example by doing only three steps but explained to him I was taking three and he would be taking 9. Marian, During the walk and turn Marian missed touching his heels to his toes, raised his arms slightly and stumbled while walking and stepped off the line.

During the "one leg stand" I instructed Marian to put his feet together arms at his side, and informed Marian to pick a leg of his choosing either left or right and was going to raise it off of the ground and count "1 one-thousand 2 one-thousand 3 one-thousand" until told to stop. I showed Marian and example and asked if he understood. Marian put his left foot up. Said "1 one-thousand 2 one-thousand 3 one-thousand and placed his foot back down. We explained to Marian he needed to go until I said to stop. Marian began again, stumbled raised his arms for balance and then put his right foot down and raised his left foot he then counted to "6 one-thousand" and stopped. Marian swayed the entire time

At this point I advised Marian he was under arrest for suspected OVI, And placed him in handcuffs while cuffing Marian tightened his right arm and would not bring it to his left arm. Marian had to be told multiple time to bring his hands together. Marian finally complied and his cuffs were gapped and double locked.

I began walking Marian toward my cruiser and he pulled away and tried to go towards his vehicle and said "wait a minute" I held Marian in place and ordered him to stop. Marian complied and was placed in the back of my patrol vehicle. Marian refused a PBT. The passenger Cheryl Dawn Marian was given a PBT, found not to be impaired and allowed to drive the vehicle away.

As we traveled down S. 15th Street, I activated the patrol cars overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle turned left on U.S. 62 and then came to a stop.

I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Curtis Smith. I informed Smith of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license. Smith said that he did not have one and that his driving privileges were suspended. Smith was able to provide me with his social security number, as well as name and date of birth.

Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Smith's information to dispatch, with it being found that he was currently under seven separate license suspensions. I then drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.032205. I cited Smith for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as turn/stop signals (ORC: 4511.39). Ptl.

Traffic - Courtney Rd @Allied Dr. Sebring, OH

CITED: Benjamin Sparks, 18, 18220 5th Street Beloit, OH

CHARGE: SCO: 333.03 Speed (59/35)

At 17:45 hours on 02-19-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While parked Parallel to Courtney Rd. in the loading bay at Famous Distribution, (350 Courtney Road), I observed a westbound Chevrolet Equinox, blue in color, that appeared to be traveling at a speed that was substantially higher than the posted 35 MPH limit.

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 59 MPH. I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. Due to the speed that the vehicle was traveling allowing it to gain a substantial amount of distance from me, I also activated the patrol cars audible siren.

The driver of the vehicle then appeared to notice that I was behind him, with him coming to a stop on Courtney Road, approximately 1/10 mile west of N. Johnson. As I pulled up onto the vehicle, I noticed Ohio Registration HWC 2036 was affixed to the back. Upon making contact with the driver, I introduced myself as well as informed him of the reason for the stop. The driver informed me that he was looking for his glasses, was on his way to get feed for his chickens, and had not noticed.

I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver handed me an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Benjamin Sparks, as well as the vehicle's registration. Sparks was unable to provide me with a copy of the vehicle's insurance information.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032204. Sparks was cited for speed (SCO: 333.03), for going 59 MPH in the marked 35 zone. Sparks signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to call Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for information on his mandatory court appearance.

I then cleared from the stop. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CHARGE: SCO: 335.10 Expired License Plates

At 16:15 hours on 01-21-2022 I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While traveling eastbound in the turning lane on E. Ohio Avenue at N. 12th Street waiting for the light to turn green, I observed a tan Chevrolet Prism that was traveling southbound on N. 12th Street travel into the intersection before slamming its brakes due to the light having changed. The vehicle then backed up to the stop bar of the intersection. It should be noted that the intersection had vehicles attempting to enter at the time this occurred.

Once I was able to proceed into the intersection I turned my patrol car around so as to position myself behind the vehicle. When the light turned green, I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, bearing Ohio Registration

HXL 3086.

Upon making contact with the driver she immediately stated she thought it was flashing yellow. The driver then provided me with her driver license, which identified her as Melonie Copen, the registered owner of the vehicle. Also present in the vehicle was a Charles Copen who was sitting in the front passenger seat.

Once back at my patrol car, I relayed the information of both of the vehicles occupants to dispatch with it being advised that the license plates of the vehicle had been expired since 11/20/2021.

Charles was found to have two active warrants for his arrest but was out of pick-up radius.

Ptl. Ray arrived at approximately this time with the two of us approaching the vehicle. I approached from the driver side and Ptl. Ray approached from the passenger side. In speaking with Melonie, she informed me that she knew her tags were expired and that she had received a warning from another police officer several weeks prior.

I also at point detected the odor of raw marijuana from inside of the vehicle. When I asked Melonie about this she said that she had a marijuana card and the she was unsure of what was inside of the vehicle.

A probable cause search as well as administrative inventory of the vehicle was conducted with nothing of value nor any contraband being located. I then returned to my patrol car where I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032122 to Copen. I cited Copen for expired license plates (SCO: 335.10). Copen also received a verbal warning for stopping within intersection.

Sebring Tire then arrived on scene and towed the vehicle to their impound lot.

Copen signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instruction on when to appear for her court appearance. Both units then cleared from the stop.

ARREST REPORT 1/03/2022 @ 1950 hrs

Case #22-001009

TRAFFIC - 15th Street / Texas Ave

CITED: Bruce Rodkey, 45, 11360 Johnson Ave NE

Charges:

335.01(a) No Drivers License

331.14 Failure to Signal

4510.11(B) Violation of Restriction

On 01/03/2022,1 Officer Ray, was sitting in the parking lot of Huntington Bank when I observed a GMC SUV drive past on Ohio Ave, and get into the turn lane at the intersection of 15th Street. At the time I also did not observe the vehicle to have a plate light. I pulled out of the parking lot and got behind the vehicle that still did not have a turn signal on.

Should be noted that at this point the vehicle was already at a complete stop. As I stopped my cruiser behind the vehicle the light at the intersection turned green, and then the turn signal was activated. The vehicle approached the intersection of 15th and Oregon and that light had turned yellow. The vehicle traveled through the intersection, but I was delayed by the red light.

The light turned green, and I activated my over head lights, and siren, and got the vehicle to stop at Texas Ave.

I approached the vehicle, and identified the driver as Bruce Rodkey, I stated to Bruce that I was stopping him for not using his turn signal 100 feet prior to his turn, and that his plate light was hanging off of the truck, and that it was not shining light on to his plate.

Bruce began to be hostile with me stating that he used his turn signal. He argued that the law does not state 100 feet, and he stated that he had planned to drive straight and that prompted me to ask why he was in the turn lane.

I asked Bruce for his drivers license and the vehicle's registration. Neither document was able to be provided. I returned to my cruiser, and asked dispatch for the registered owners information. Dispatch advised me that Bruce was restricted to daylight driving.

Should be noted that my time of stop was at 19:50 and it was dark.

I returned to Bruce and stated to him that he was being cited for the restriction, and again he began to argue with me stating that it was an issue with the BMV. I stated to him that I go off of what I am told by my dispatcher and that I was not the BMV. I stated to Bruce that I was not the court and to stop arguing.

Bruce stated that I never gave him a reason for the stop, and I repeated that he was stopped for not using his turn signal. Bruce then stated "why did it take you so long to stop me" and I advised him that he went through the intersection on yellow and I stopped at the red light. In that same sentence Bruce argued that I ran the red light. Should be noted that Officer Ossler was sitting at that same intersection and observed me stopping at the light. Officer Ossler will be doing a supplement.

Due to Bruce continuing to argue with me over the traffic stop, I advised him that I would be back. I returned to my cruiser and added the failure to signal on the citation.

I returned to Bruce, and stated that the failure to signal was now added, and I continued by asking him if he was going to sign the citation. Bruce agreed. While signing the citation, Bruce began to question why the traffic stop took so long and I advised him that due to him not providing any information to me in the form of a license or the registration that I had to call dispatch for them to read me all the information.

Bruce was cited for Violation of Restriction 4510.11(8), Failure to signal 331.14, and No drivers license 335.01(a).

CITED: Morgan Barr-Finnie, 22, 1086 Porter Rd. Alliance, OH

Charges:

ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (Non-Compliance)

ORC: 4511.21 Speed (38125)

On 11-05-2021 at 17:48 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While sitting facing westbound in the parking lot of unit, United Die, located at 100 N. 17th Street, I observed a tan four-door sedan traveling eastbound on W. California Avenue at a rate of speed that appeared to be higher than that of the posted 25MPH limit. Upon activating the front-facing radar antenna of the patrol car, I obtained a locked speed of 38MPH. I then pulled out onto the roadway, activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop.

The Tan Nissan Altima, bearing Ohio Registration JLW6209, came to a complete stop in the 200 block of W. California Avenue, with me then approaching and making contact with the female driver and male front seat passenger.

Upon advising the driver of the reason for the stop, she said that she was not familiar with the roads or speed limits. She then produced an Ohio Driver License, which identified her as Morgan Lee Barr Finnie. I also requested the front seat passenger's identification, seeing as he did not have a seat belt on. The passenger handed me an Ohio Identification Card, which identified him as Brandon Lamont Dotson. Mr. Dotson also at this point advised me that he had a Concealed Carry Permit and was armed.

I then returned to my patrol car where I relayed both subjects' information to dispatch. Barr-Finnie was found to be under a non-compliance suspension and Dotson did not have a valid driver license. At this point, I requested Ptl. Ray to respond to my location due to Dotson advising the presence of a firearm in the vehicle.

Upon again making contact with Barr-Finnie, I advised her of her suspension and asked if she was aware. Barr-Finnie said that she was not and that she had recently received a traffic citation that she did pay in full. Barr-Finnie was advised to contact someone to give her a ride seeing as her vehicle was going to be towed. Barr-Finnie said that she would be in contact with her mother, and that she would come from Alliance to give her a ride home seeing as she had a small child in the vehicle with her.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032201. I cited Barr-Finnie for Speed (ORC: 4511.21), for going 38MPH in the marked 25MPH zone. Barr-Finnie was also cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11). I then returned to Barr-Finnie's vehicle where she signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for instructions on when she is to appear in court.

It should also be noted that when I requested Barr-Finnie's proof of insurance, she scrolled through her phone briefly but advised that she was unable to locate it.

Sebring Tire then arrived on scene as did Barr-Finnie's mother. An administrative inventory was conducted of the vehicle, with nothing of value and no contraband being located. The vehicle was then towed to Sebring Tire.

Barr-Finnie, Mr. Dotson, and left with her mother and stepfather.

Both Ptl. Ray and I then cleared from the stop. It should be noted that the calibration of car 303's in-car radar unit was verified before use as well as after issuing Barr-Finnie her citation, this being done using the department issued tuning forks. I also know the speed limit on W. California Avenue to be clearly posted and easily visible.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

4549.02(A)(1) Stopping After an Accident

On 10/02/2021, I, Officer Ray, along with Detective Reed, assisted Smith Township with a vehicle crash they had on SR 62. Dispatch advised the Smith unit that a vehicle had went through the stop sign on 15th at SR 62, and the vehicle had come to a stop across from the stop sign. Dispatch advised that witnesses were watching the individual begin to walk North on 15th street.

I was already in the area, and began to search 15th for the individual. I was unable to locate.

Smith unit advised dispatch the vehicles plate, N033723. The vehicle belonged to Steven Lively.

At this point Detective Reed advised all units that Steven had an ex girlfriend that lived at 332 South 15th Street. Detective Reed, and myself went to that address. Upon our arrival we made contact with who was currently on the phone with 911 to report that Steven had crashed into her car. She stated that Steven was at the residence, and they were going to try and make things work relating to a past domestic. Sh stated that Steven had rubbed the hand of a 17 year old girl. This caused an argument.

It was at that point Steven had flipped over the fire pit in the yard that had an active burning fire. He backed his vehicle out of the garage, and put the vehicle in drive, striking a vehicle. Steven fled south on 15th Street.

When advised how drunk Steven was I cleared from the residence to search 15th Street again, I

believed that Steven could have fallen into a ditch / needed medical help.

While searching 15th Street, dispatch advised me that motorists had seen Steven stumbling down 12th Street near SR 62, As I turned on to 12th from SR 62 I was flagged down by a motorist who stated Steven was down the street trying to hitch hike. I observed Steven standing on the side of the road with his arm out, and his thumb up in a hitch hiking position. As I exited my vehicle I observed Steven swaying back and forth, bleeding from his right shin, not wearing shoes, and confused of his location. Steven stated to me that he believed to be on Union Street in Alliance, and was trying to hitch hike home. Steven stated to me that he was not driving any vehicle that night.

I detained Steven at 2038 hours, placed him in hand cuffs, gapped/ double locked, and placed him in the back of marked cruiser # 304. I transported Steven to his crashed vehicle on SR 62 where the Smith unit was still at. Upon my arrival Smith Township took custody of Steven.

I stood by at the scene while Smith unit conducted field sobriety on Steven. At this point Smith Township placed Steven under arrest. Smith transported Steven back to Sebring PD where OSP was waiting to use the lntoxilyzer 8000. Steven refused. It should be noted that during the time spent with Steven I observed a strong odor of alcohol, blood shot eyes, Steven had slurred speech, and was having a difficult time standing up.

I cited Steven with Physical Control of a vehicle 4511.194(B)(1), DUS 4510.11, and for not stopping after causing an accident 4549.02(A)(l).

Charge: SCO:333.03 Speed (49/35)

On 09-25-2021 at 21:23 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While stationary at the entrance of Grandview Cemetery, located on S. Johnson Rd. approximately 1/4 mile north of the intersection with U.S. Route 62, I heard a vehicle begin rapidly accelerating as it traveled northbound on S. Johnson Rd. I then observed a silver Dodge Durango, traveling northbound on Johnson Rd at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35 MPH speed limit.

I then obtained a locked speed of 49 MPH on the vehicle, using the department issued LIDAR(light Detection and Ranging) gun. Once the vehicle passed by me, I pulled onto the roadway and activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights. The vehicle, Silver Dodge Durango, bearing Ohio Registration JLX 5185, then pulled to the side of the road.

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver and advised him of the reason for the stop. When I asked the driver why he accelerated so fast from the intersection, he stated "I just like the way my vehicle sounds, sir". I then requested the driver's vehicle registration, proof of insurance, as well as driver license. The driver was able to produce all requested documents, with his Ohio Driver License identifying him as Toby Lee Zeigler.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032092. Mr. Zeigler was cited for Speed/ Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03 for going 49MPH in a marked 35MPH zone.

OVI - Courtney and Johnson Road

CITED: Tonia Norris, 47, 33569 Edgehill Drive, Franklin

CHARGES:

4511.19 OVI / Bond $1,250

4301.62 Open Container

4513.23 Obstructed Rear View

REPORTING: Ptl Stanton #505

Unit responded to a possible OVI leaving a residence. I (Ptl. Stanton), responded to the complaint and found the vehicle in question traveling North on Johnson Road. I verified the plate with Sebring Dispatch and then monitored the vehicle to watch for possible impairment. I was advised that the caller is vouching that the driver was intoxicated by Sebring Dispatch. At that time I witnessed a blanket was obstructing the rear view mirror of the vehicle. With this probable cause, I conducted a traffic stop on Johnson and Courtney Rd.

Approaching the driver I asked for license and registration, I noticed a faint odor of alcohol coming from the rolled down window. I then advised the driver that I stopped the vehicle for and obstructed rear view mirror. She looked back and confirmed the blanket and tried pulling it down more. I then asked for the passengers license and I secured the documents from the vehicle. I then asked the driver Tonia Norris if she had anything to drink tonight and she freely admitted she did. I then asked her to step out of the vehicle for SFST tests, at this time I witnessed a beer can on the floor in the passenger side. She complied.

Sgt. Davis #342 of Smith Township Police was on scene as well and secured the passenger while I conducted my test.

There was no notable nystagmus in the eyes so I moved on with the rest of the tests. During the walk and turn, Tonia was unable to perform heel to toe test an turned abruptly with one step instead of a serious of smalls steps as instructed. Tonia also was unable to walk back in the same amount of steps she walked forward initially in. I moved on to the one leg stand, Tonia then was unable to keep her foot raised for the full 30 seconds. She instead stopped at 15 then started and stopped at 23 then started and finally stopped at 30.

During these start and stops she did not count in the thousands as instructed as well. Tonia was also wobbly and moved her arms out to keep balance. With these notifications, I arrested Tonia for OVI and Sgt. Davis secured her in his cruiser.

I went back to the vehicle and spoke to Sherrie explaining what is happening, that is when I witnessed the bag of open alcohol containers. I secured them and discovered it contained a crushed beer can and two open and empty bottle of Corona.

I waited for Sebring Tire to tow the vehicle and once this was done I returned to station for testing of Tonia. Sebring Tire escorted Sherrie to station due to me having the K-9 and Sgt. Davis having Tonia in custody for transport. Once at the station I told Sebring Tire the vehicle is on hold for court and he left station accordingly.

I instructed Sherrie to wait in the lobby while I processed Tonia. I read Tonia the 2255 form and asked if she is willing to consent to a breath test. Tonia consented and blew a .202.

I processed the paperwork with Tonia and cited her for OVI 4511.19 /Open Container 4301.62 /and Obstructed Rear View - 4513.23. I obtained photographs of Tonia and fingerprints for her as well. The bottles and beer cans located in her vehicle are stored in evidence at this time. I asked Tonia if going to court today would help since she is out of state and she agreed it would. I originally had her go to court on 9/30/2021 then realized what day it was and told her courts are on Thursdays for Sebring. The court date is set for 09/23/2021 @ 900 for MCC#3.

Traffic - S. 18th Street & W. Georgia Ave.

CITED: Loni Quinn, 31, 27276 Lake Front Dr. Beloit OH

CHARGE: SCO: 335.05 Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle

At 16:59 hours on 09-03-2021, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While patrolling eastbound in the 200 block of W. Georgia Avenue, I clearly observed a person who I know to be Christopher Guildoo driving a green Ford Expedition westbound on the same road.

This vehicle also had a small trailer in tow.

Upon seeing Guildoo, I requested his driving status from dispatch, with it being advised shortly after that his driver license was suspended. I then turned my patrol car around and went towards the area where I had last seen Guildoo's vehicle.

As I neared the intersection of S. 18th Street and W. Georgia Avenue, I observed Guildoo's vehicle in an alleyway that connects W. Georgia to S. 18th Street. I then pulled into this alleyway opposite the direction he was going and initiated a traffic stop.

Upon exiting my patrol car and approaching the vehicle, I observed Christopher Guildoo in the front driver seat, Loni Quinn in the front passenger seat, and Brittany Landacre in the back seat behind Quinn. At this point I also noted that Ohio Registration JLW 5706 was attached to the SUV. This registration showed the vehicle as belonging to Loni Quinn. Ohio Registration SYX3177 was attached to the trailer. This registration expired on 09-15-2021 and returned to a Ronald Hubbs of Sebring.

I then returned to my patrol car where I began writing traffic citations for both Quinn and Guildoo. Due to officer safety, I requested mutual aid from Smith Township so that I could complete an administrative inventory of the vehicle prior to towing. Ptl. Iverson arrived a short time later. Guildoo was cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11) as well as Expired Registration (ORC: 4503.11). Quinn was cited for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle(SCO: 335.05).

Both parties were advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 the following business day for information on when to appear for their court hearing. I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being located.

Case No.: 21-009018

Traffic - S. 18th Sweet & W. Georgia Ave. Sebring, Oh

CITED: Christopher Guidoo, 43, 555 W. California Ave. Sebring

CHARGES:

ORC:4510.11 Driving Under Suspension

ORC: 4503.11 Expired Registration

At 16:59 hours on 09-03-2021, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While patrolling eastbound in the 200 block of W. Georgia Avenue, I clearly observed a person who I know to be Christopher Guildoo driving a green Ford Expedition westbound on the same road.

This vehicle also had a small trailer in tow.

Upon seeing Guildoo, I requested his driving status from dispatch, with it being advised shortly after that his driver license was suspended. I then turned my patrol car around and went towards the area where I had last seen Guildoo's vehicle.

As I neared the intersection of S. 18th Street and W. Georgia Avenue, I observed Guildoo's vehicle in an alleyway that connects W. Georgia to S. 18th Street. I then pulled into this alleyway opposite the direction he was going and initiated a traffic stop.

Upon exiting my patrol car and approaching the vehicle, I observed Christopher Guildoo in the front driver seat, Loni Quinn in the front passenger seat, and Brittany Landacre in the back seat behind Quinn. At this point I also noted that Ohio Registration JLW 5706 was attached to the SUV. This registration showed the vehicle as belonging to Loni Quinn. Ohio Registration SYX3177 was attached to the trailer. This registration expired on 09-15-2021 and returned to a Ronald Hubbs of Sebring.

I then returned to my patrol car where I began writing traffic citations for both Quinn and Guildoo. Due to officer safety, I requested mutual aid from Smith Township so that I could complete an administrative inventory of the vehicle prior to towing. Ptl. Iverson arrived a short time later. Guildoo was cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11) as well as Expired Registration (ORC: 4503.11). Quinn was cited for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle(SCO: 335.05).

Both parties were advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 the following business day for information on when to appear for their court hearing. I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being located.

Sebring tire then arrived on scene and towed the SUV to their impound lot. Due to Quinn being cited for Wrongful Entrustment, a hold was placed on the vehicle.

The trailer, with Consent from resident Katrina Salyers, was left in her yard at 335 S. 18h Street. Guildoo was advised that he would need valid registration to use it on a public roadway.

CHARGES:

ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (M1)

ORC: 4549.08 Fictitious Plates

ORC: 4513.05 Illumination of Rear License Plate

At 20:30 hours on 08-27-2021, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary at the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. Johnson Road, a silver Toyota pulled off to the side of the road and approached my patrol car, with a female exiting and asking for directions to Canton. After giving the female subject directions, she turned around and began driving southbound on N. Johnson Rd. At this point I noticed that the rear license plate light to the vehicle was not functioning. I then requested a registration check of the vehicle, with the attached license Plate. JFR 6974, returning to a black Chevrolet station wagon with this registration also being expired.

I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lightbar and initiated a traffic stop. The silver Toyota Echo came to a complete stop on Lake Park Blvd., just west of S. Johnson Road. I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who identified herself as Lee Ann Carney. In speaking with Carney, I advised her of the reason for the stop and asked for her driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance.

Carney was unable to produce any of the requested documents, with her informing me that she did not have a driver license. Carney also advised me that the license plates belonged to her sister, Elizabeth Carney.

I then relayed Carney's information to dispatch, with it being discovered that her driver license was under suspension. Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene at approximately this time. Carney was then instructed to step out of the vehicle and stand on the curb lawn of a neighboring residence. I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being found.

After completing the inventory, I returned to my patrol cat where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.031952. I cited Carney for Driving Under Suspension (ORC:4510.11)Fictitious Plates (ORC:4549.08), and Illumination of Rear License Plate (ORC: 4513.05). As I was writing the citation, I asked Sgt. Kelm to relay the vehicle's VIN number to dispatch to determine ownership. The vehicle retumed to a Virginia Chesser, of Warren, Ohio.

I then returned to Carney's vehicle, where she was now sitting, and asked her to sign the citation. Carney signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 the following business day for instructions on when to appear for her mandatory court appearance.

Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. Due to Carney not having anyone available to pick her up and the fact that she had a toddler with her, she was given a courtesy ride to The Sebring Police Station so that she could wait for a ride.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

Traffic - E. Wisconsin Ave. @14th St.

CITED: Austin Sturgill, age 24, 4439 Center Rd. Conneaut

Charge: 4511.19 A1A OVl SFST / Bond $500

While on patrol I was waved down by the complainant later identified as Christin Sanders 836 N. 15th St., near the intersection of N. 15th St. and E. Wisconsin Ave. Christin advised her boyfriend, later identified as Austin Sturgill, had been driving around and he was drunk.

Christin advised Austin was driving a white in color Dodge Ram. I then began a sweep of the area. I was able to observe a white in color Dodge Ram traveling east on E. Vermont Ave. which then turned north on N. 12th St.

I got behind the vehicle to observe their driving, when the vehicle got near 835 N. 14th St. I observed the vehicle turn into the alley without properly signaling. I then activated my overhead emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop. I made contact with the driver Austin Sturgill who appeared very nervous and was stumbling on his words. I then asked Austin for his drivers license, registration, and proof of insurance.

Austin produced his drivers license but had to be asked again for his registration and insurance information.

After being asked a second time Austin was able to provide a valid registration and advised his insurance information was on his phone but he was having trouble signing in. While speaking with Austin me had his hand covering his mouth as he spoke and I was able to faintly smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from inside the vehicle. I then asked Austin if he had anything to drink and he replied he had 2 beers approximately 2 hours ago. I then advised Austin I would like to perform a test to ensure he was ok to driver which he complied with.

While Austin was seated in the drivers seat of the vehicle I performed the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. I advised Austin to look at my finger tip and only my finger tip and follow it was only his eyes. I then checked for equal pupil size and resting nystagmus. Austin had no signs of resting nystagmus and both pupils appeared to be of equal size. I then checked both eyes for equal tracking and both eyes tracked the tip of my finger equally. I then checked both eyes for onset of nystagmus at maximum deviation which I was able to observe in both eyes. I then checked both eyes for onset prior to 45 degrees which was also observed in both eyes. I then advised Austin I would like to perform 2 more tests to ensure he was ok to drive. Austin complied and I advised him to step out of the vehicle.

I then had Austin stand with his arms at his sides and his left foot in front of his right heel to toe while I showed him an example of how the walk and turn test was to be completed. Austin advised he understood the instructions. I then had him begin. Austin immediately used his arms to keep balance, and stepped off the line several times.

I then had Austin stand with his arms at his sides and feet together. I then showed Austin an example of the next test the one leg stand. Austin advised he understood my directions. I then advised Austin he could start the test. Austin used his arms to keep his balance, did not count how I advised him to, and dropped his foot multiple times.

I then advised Austin he was under arrest for suspicion of OVI. I had him turn with his back facing me, placed him in handcuffs (double locked and properly gapped), and placed him in the rear of my cruiser.

At this time the complainant arrived on scene and advised she would drive the vehicle to avoid it getting towed. I verified she was a valid driver and ensured Austin agreed that she could drive the vehicle. I then transported Austin back to the police station where he was read the BMV 2255.

Austin advised he refused to take any chemical tests. Austin was then photographed and fingerprinted and released on an OR bond. Austin was advised of his court date on 7/29/2021 at MCC#3 at 0900hrs.

I then gave Austin a courtesy transport back to 836 N. 15th St.

I asked for the driver's license, registration and proof of insurance and he procured all the aforementioned documents to me.

Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene to assist me at this time and dispatch advised officers that the driver, Tyler Mccaslin, was suspended and having a warrant out of Columbiana County to which they did want him.

On 07-02-2021 at 17:25 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary facing north on the roadside in the 1100 block of S. 12th St I observed a white SUV that was traveling southbound at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35MPH speed limit.

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 55MPH. As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

The white Ford Expedition, bearing Ohio Registration JCR 6086, came to a complete stop just south of the village limits. Upon making contact with the driver, I requested her driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced all requested documents with her Ohio Driver License identifying her as Janelle Corallo. When I asked if she was aware of her speed Corallo did not reply.

I then returned to my patrol car where I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032085 to Corallo for Speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 55MPH in the marked 35MPH zone. Corolla signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation or pay it if she wished to do so.

Charge: SCO: 333.08 Reasonable Control (MM)

At 11:0l hours on 06-11-2021 I was traveling westbound in the 300 block of Courtney Rd. when I observed a semi-tractor-trailer-truck that appeared to have driven off the roadway while traveling eastbound. All wheels on the driver side of the truck and trailer were lifted off of the ground and the truck was leaning heavily onto its passenger side.

As I approached closer, I observed a male subject in his 20's, of Asian descent, standing near the truck. I slowed to a stop and made contact with the subject, who advised that he had a tow truck enroute to pull the truck out. At approximately this time, I was advised by dispatch that a call had been received regarding the incident.

I then turned my patrol car around and activated my overhead lights so as to alert oncoming traffic. I also requested the driver's registration, driver license, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced a driver license from Ontario Canada that identified him as Rajbeer Singh Turna. In speaking with Turna, he advised that while he was traveling eastbound on Courtney Rd. approaching the tracks he slowed down and pulled over to the shoulder of the roadway to allow another vehicle to pass him. Turna said that he pulled over too far and then went into the ditch. Turna advised that he had been up driving for approximately nine hours.

I detected no signs of impairment while speaking with him. As I continued on around the truck, I noticed that an Ontario Canada license plate bearing 903-2PZ was attached to the truck. U.S. Dept. Transportation No. 1474865 was also affixed to the side.

Approximately 40 minutes later, Johns Towing arrived and pulled the semi-tractor-trailer-truck from the ditch.

Upon being removed from the ditch, the truck was pulled across the railroad tracks by Johns Towing. Because Mr. Turna could not get the truck started again, I notified Smith Township of the issue. Because the truck presented a road hazard, Det. Starr arrived and began conducting traffic control until the truck could be towed from the roadside. David Martin and John Shultz, of Famous Supply, also arrived at around this time and assessed the damage to their property that consisted of deep rutting and damage to the grass along the roadside.

Rajbeer Turna was issued Uniform traffic citation No. 032024 for operation without reasonable control (SC0:333.08). Turna signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so.

Charge: SCO:333.08 Operation Without Reasonable Control

On 05-06-2021 at 08:05 hours, I was dispatched to the area of Sebring Woods on Courtney Rd. regarding a vehicle in a ditch with the driver standing outside of it. I immediately proceeded to this area where I located the subject vehicle, a red 2003 Ford Mustang (OH Reg JIU 4422), sitting in a grassy area on the north side of the roadway facing east. There were also tire tracks in the grass and along the berm of the roadway that led from Courtney Rd and indicated an eastbound direction of travel.

Upon making contact with the male subject who was standing outside of the vehicle, I asked him what had happened and if he was injured. The subject said that he was turning right into Courtney Rd. from N. Johnson Avenue and he lost control and went off the roadway. I then asked the subject for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The subject was able to produce an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Zachary Richards as well as proof of up-to-date insurance. Richards said that he had just purchased the vehicle and provided me with a signed and notarized title, which listed a purchase date of 04-19-2021. In speaking further with Richards I did not observe any signs to indicate that he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Richards also advised that he was wearing a seat belt and had not been distracted by his cell phone or any other device at the time of the crash.

I then returned to my patrol car and drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.032079. Richards was cited for operation without reasonable control (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.08). Richards then signed to citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instructions on how to either pay the citation or contest it if he wished to do so.

A family member then arrived and pulled Richards vehicle from the ditch while I maintained traffic control. I then cleared from the call with nothing additional to report at this time.

Charge: SCO:331.36 Loud Exhaust

On 05-06-2023 at 2346 hours I, Patrolman Peterman #507, was preparing to leave station when I observed a black Volkswagen approaching the intersection of N 15th St. and East Ohio Ave. loudly emitting a crackling exhaust sound. As the vehicle passed station, I observed the exhaust was modified through the hood of the vehicle. As the vehicle turned south onto 15th St. the vehicle became increasingly louder as it accelerated. I entered my assigned, marked cruiser #302, and as I passed through the intersection of Ohio Ave. and 15th I observed the same vehicle traveling south towards West Texas Ave. I approached the vehicle while activating my emergency overhead lights and audible siren, with the vehicle stopping on west Texas Ave, near south 15th St.

I advised dispatch to have Sgt. Kelm #503 to assist me with the traffic stop.

As Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene, I approached the vehicle, identifying myself and the reason for the stop being the very loud exhaust sound. I advised the driver and registered owner, Samuel Holshue, that I was going to perform a decibel reading on the vehicle with the department reader. I advised Samuel to rev his car to 3000 RPM so that I can observe the sound level emitted is the same during testing and Samuel complied. I then advised him to stop. As the vehicle idled, I Placed the decibel reader 2-3 inches above the exhaust tip for several seconds and observed a steady reading of 90.8 decibels.

I then advised Samuel to rev the vehicle to 3000 RPM and to hold it at that level as I obtained a second reading. Upon performing the same placement of decibel reader, I observed a steady reading of 109.9 Decibels over several seconds. I moved the reader away after locking the device at maximum noise level read, and shown Samuel the reading.

I advised Samuel I needed his license and pertinent documentation for the vehicle. Samuel handed me his license, and I returned to my marked cruiser. Samuel was given from Sgt. Kelms citation booklet, citation #031225 for loud exhaust (SCO 331.36MM), and upon returning to the vehicle, Samuel showed me an insurance card that expired on 4/30/2021. Samuel was unable to find an up to date insurance card, and was given a mandatory court date to be set by the court. I advised Samuel of this and asked for his signature, to which he complied.

Officers then cleared without further incident.

I activated my emergency overhead lights, and audible siren as the vehicle stopped near the intersectian of West Pennsylvania and North 19th Street, I performed a passenger side approach and identified myself, and the reason for the stop being the registered owner being under license suspension.

The driver, Alyssa Smith, advised she was aware of her license suspension but had driving privileges for work and had just gotten off of work but was searching for her dog that ran away earlier that evening.

Alyssa handed me her identification card, which I confirmed through dispatch was under a license suspension with driving privileges, but did not have her registration or insurance on her. I then advised Alyssa if she could have a valid driver be at our location in a short time, I would not tow the vehicle. A short time later Shawn Carver arrived on scene and produced a valid license which I confirmed through dispatch. Shawn Carver took possession of the vehicle, and I advised Alyssa not to drive for any reason not listed on her privileges.

Alyssa agreed and I cleared without further incident.

After discussing with dispatch, I mistook the license suspension with privileges as dispatch advised to me that her driving privileges were revoked through Portage County Court as of 3/20/21. I then went to the residence (595 West Maryland Ave.) and advised Alyssa she was going to receive a citation as her driving privileges were revoked.

I completed citation #032051 for DUS 4510.11, and advised Alyssa to contact the court for further information on the court date and any other questions she may have. I then cleared without further incident.

Charge: SCO:333.03 Speed(53/35)

On 04-24-2021 at 11:24 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary along the roadside facing south in the 100 block of 5. 12fhS treet, I observed a silver SUV traveling northbound on 5. 12th street near E. Georgia Avenue at a rate of speed that was visibly higher than that of the posted 35 MPH limit. Upon activating the patrol cars front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 53 MPH.

Once the vehicle passed by my location, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The silver Jeep Lerada, being Ohio Registration FXP 1825, came to a complete stop in the 100 block of S.12th Street near the train tracks. I then performed a passenger side approach and made contact with the driver, as well as front seat passenger. In speaking with the driver, I identified myself as well as informed him of the reason for the stop. When I asked if he was aware of his speed, the driver said that he believed that he was only going 40 MPH. I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Henry Mumaw. I also at this point noticed that both he and his passenger appeared very anxious, as was evident by their shaking and inability to maintain eye contact while I was speaking with them.

I also asked the passenger if I could see his identification, with him handing me an Ohio Identification card that showed him to be Jeriah Doyle.

I then returned to my patrol car, with Ptl. Paterson arriving to my location. In speaking with Paterson, I advised him that I would be writing the driver a citation for speed as soon as I was advised of his driving and warrant status by dispatch.

Several seconds later I was informed by dispatch that Mumaw's driver license was expired as of 01-11-2021. It should be noted that this falls under the exemption dates for the Covid-19 pandemic. I then requested Ptl. Paterson to speak with the driver and ask for consent to search the vehicle while I wrote the citation.

Paterson returned several minutes later and advised that he noticed the nervous behavior from the two subjects as well and that Mumaw declined his request to perform a consent search on the vehicle.

Due to the behavior of the two subjects indicating possible criminal activity, I asked if Ptl. Stanton was available with K9 Radar, with him advising that he was not. I then wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032077 to Mumaw. I cited Mumaw for speed(Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 53 MPH in the marked 35MPH zone. I then returned to his vehicle where he signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the following business day for instructions on how to either pay the citation or contest it if he wished to do so.

Both units then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

Traffic Stop - E. Ohio Ave at MCC#3

Cited: Alberto Delavirgen, 32 y/o, 4424 Fernbrooke Rd, Las Vegas

Charges:

335.02 Denied Driver License

335.09 Display of License Plate

On 04/08/2021 at approximately 2239 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton), witnessed a white 4 door sedan travel East on Ohio Ave tram the itersection of 15th and Ohio. I got behind said vehicle and witnessed it did not have a visible license plate. While searching for a plate, I witnessed the vehicle briefly go over the solid double yellow line and go back into the appropriate lane. I then saw the vehicle go very close and briefly touching the solid white line as well. Unable to see a plate anywhere to the rear of the vehicle. I initiated the traffic stop at approximately 2243 hours. At this time we were outside of the Mahaning County Court #3 parking lot and the vehicle pulled into the lot and parked.

Upon my foot approach to the vehicle, I witnessed a male with a shirt on his had over his hat obscuring his face, I proceeded to ask for a license, insurance and registration of the vehicle. The driver explained he could not find any of it and I morioned to his dash where what looked to be a card of some kind. This was indeed his license.

After securing this, I explained why I stopped him. He acted surprised that he did not have a rear tag on his vehicle. He explained he bought the vehicle and is driving across country. At this time he produced a title to the vehicle and a hand written bill of sale stating he bought the vehicle.

I told the driver identified as Alberto Delavirgen to stay in his vehicle and look for license plate or tag as I went back to my cruiser. With further investigation, the driver is denied through Colorado court and a bench warrant was issued.

I began writing a citation and I called for another unit. Ptl. Peterman #507 arrived on scene as well for officer safety. The driver was out of his vehicle at this time and actively looking through his trunk and other doors for what I believe to be the temporary tag. I had Ptl. Peterman watch the subject while I completed the citation.

I issued Alberto a citation for No OL SCO 335.02 and Display of Plate SCO 335.09. I called for a tow of the vehicle at this time as well. Upon issuing the citation, the driver produced a temporary tag of the vehicle. This tag came back to a Barbara Mark out of Nevada. I explained that nothing is coming back to him as a rightful owner legally at this time and since he cannot drive due to no license, the vehicle is under police hold-it the tow yard. The driver became argumentative and demanded to gather his things and speak to my supervisor.

I inventoried the vehicle contents and the driver denied a consent to search. I explained the tow inventory and the driver was argumentative about it but stayed with Ptl. Peterman while I conducted the inventory. The driver then wanted to obtain objects from the vehicle.

The tow driver is waiting at this time for him to clear the vehicle for safety reasons and kept finding reason to re-enter it. After two bags and a small safe were secured, I ordered the driver to step away from the vehicle and stop impeding the tow driver from his job. The driver (Alberta) became increasingly argumentative as well. Alberto accused the Tow driver of stealing the key to the vehicle and it was determined a Key Fob was nearby and that was how the vehicle was able to start for the tow driver.

The driver then said the key must be somewhere in the vehicle and he doesn't know where it is (it is not on his person). After the tow driver secured the vehicle, Ptl. Peterman curtesy escorted the driver to a hotel in Alliance since he had no where to stay for the night.

Upon witnessing this, I activated the patrol cars overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The tan Cruze, bearing Ohio registration HWU 4325, came to a complete stop in the 600 block of W. Ohio Avenue.

Upon approaching the vehicle and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance.

The driver was unable to produce any of the requested documents, but was able to provide me with his name, date of birth and social security number. The driver said that his name was Jacob Weese. When I asked if he had a valid driver license, Mr. Weese said that he did.

I then returned to my patrol car where I relayed the information that Weese provided me to dispatch. Ptl. Russell arrived on scene at this time as well.

Weese again began making statements about SR22's, Judge Zumbar, and that he should have an SR22 to drive. I then informed him that an SR22 is not a driver license and that we both know that.

While stationary in the parking lot of Trinity Lutheran Church, located at 930 N. 12th Street, I observed a tan Dodge Status traveling southbound on N. 12th Street that did not appear to have a visible registration tag.

The vehicle turned right from N. 12th street and began traveling westbound On E. Vermont Avenue. As I turned the corner in my patrol car, I noticed Brandon Green, who I know to have a suspended driver license, exiting the driver seat of the vehicle in the driveway of 366 E. Vermont Avenue. I also noticed that there was no visible registration on the vehicle.

I then pulled up behind the vehicle and made contact with Mr. Green. When I informed him that I was stopping him because he did not have any visible registration, he reached into the vehicle and pulled out a temporary Ohio registration tag that had been laying between the rear passenger seats and rear window. I also asked Green if his driver license was still suspended, with him saying that they were but he had driving privileges through East Liverpool.

Upon running this registration (K428397) through dispatch, I was advised that it belonged on 2003 a Ford truck that was registered to a David Gamble in East Liverpool, Ohio. I was also advised that the plates had expired on September 14,2020. In addition to this, I was advised that Mr. Green's license was suspended, that he did not have any driving privileges, and that he had been cited for driving under suspension three times within the last year and that there was a confiscation order placed on his driver license by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

At this point I also noticed the expiration date on the tags had whiteout covering the original date and Apr 12, 2021 being rewritten over it.

I then asked Green for his driver license, with him producing an Ohio identification card. I also asked green whose residence we were at, with him saying he believed it was his friend, Jesse Miller's house. At this point I received consent to conduct a pat-down of Green's person for weapons, I noted that he had a small folding pocked knife that I removed from his right pocket, with me advising him that I would be holding onto it for the duration of our encounter. Green also consented to a search of his pockets, with no contraband being found.

Ptl. Russell arrived to our location at around this time with me returning to my patrol car to write Mr. Green his citations. Mr. Green received Uniform Traffic Citation No's. 032020 and 032021. Mr. Green was cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11), Fictitious Plates (QRC 4549.08), and Display of License Plates (ORC 4503.21).

On 01-16-2021 at 15:00 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 301.

While patrolling eastbound in the 300 block of E, Ohio Ave., I noticed that the vehicle in front of me, a later 1990's model Pontiac Sunfire that was green in color, did not appear to have a license plate attached to it.

Upon noticing this I activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle slowed down before coming to a complete stop in the 400 block of E. Ohio. As my patrol car approached closer to the subject vehicle, I was able to notice what appeared to be an Ohio temporary tag that was positioned vertically at the far end of the rear window on the driver side. Due to the positioning of the tag, it was difficult to see and not in plain view . I did note that the registration numbers were K997418 as I got closer.

I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the male driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked him for his Driver License, Vehicle Registration, and proof of insurance, I also noted a female subject in the front passenger seat who I know to be Kristina Tyson. The driver produced an Ohio Temporary Permit that identified him as Paul Michael Lee Bates.

It should be noted that the expiration of Bates's Driver License pre-dated the declared state of emergency for Covid-19. I was also advised by dispatch at this time that Tyson's Driver License was under and active suspension.

I then returned to the subject vehicle where I asked Tyson if she had a valid driver license, with her informing me that she did not and that her License was suspended. At this point I asked Paul if he understood that he could not drive on a Temporary Permit without a passenger who held a valid Driver License, with him advising me that he was. I then instructed Bates to exit the vehicle, with him complying with my request. I also asked for and received consent to conduct a patdown search of his person, with me also explicitly asking for and receiving consent to search his pockets. No weapons or contraband were located during this search.

I then asked Tyson to exit the vehicle and instructed her to speak with Ptl. Russel, who was standing on the passenger side of the vehicle. Tyson complied with my request as well. At this point I requested Sebring Tire to respond to my location as well as began an administrative inventory of the vehicle, with no weapons, contraband, or anything of significant value being located.

Sebring Tire arrived on scene several minutes later, with Mike Springer being the tow operator. It should be noted that I received the key to the vehicle from the keyring at Bates's request, with me leaving it in the vehicle's ignition and the other keys on the ring being given to Bates.

I then asked for and received consent to search his person, with me explicitly asking for and receiving consent to search his pockets for drugs. Prior to beginning my search, Heestand did tell me that he had a knife In his waistband, which I took and held onto for the duration of our encounter.

I got behind the vehicle which had now turned on to S. 12th st. The vehicle suddenly turned into the parking lot of Sebring Tire without signaling 100 feet prior to the change in direction. At this point I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle.

I approached the vehicle and identified the driver as Kelsi J Shaver, and the passenger Francis Palguta. Both of whom are suspended, I gained consent to search the vehicle. During my search I located a large lock box in the rear passenger seat, the box was unlocked with the key in the lock still, when I opened the box I observed dozens of plastic baggies some with white residue on them.

Francis stated he forgot they were in there and admitted at one point they had methamphetamine in them. I collected the lock box and paraphernalia as evidence.

Kelsi was cited for DUS noncompliance 335.073 with a court date to be set at MCC#3. Kelsi was given a verbal warning for the turn signal violation and the window tint. Francis was not charged on scene for the paraphernalia but the bags with residue will be sent out for testing.

Charge: 2913.02(A)(1) THEFT / Bond $2,500

Following Narrative by Ptl. Marchionda #505

Upon arrival at 756 N. 15th St. I establised contact with the complainant, Dale Yaggi. Dale advised he received am e-mail from PNC to inform him unauthorized activity may have occurred with his PNC credit card. Dale stated his PNC credit card was supposed to be locked in a filing cabinet located downstairs but he suspects his daughter, Jessica Yaggi, broke into the cabinet and took it. Dale provided a copy of the email showing two charges on 11/1/2020 were flagged: CASH APP ANTHONY CLARKE $20.60 and TACO BELL #1653 ALLIANCE OH $28.77.

I asked Dale to show me the filing cabinet in the basement and upon inspection of the cabinet I observed tool marks on the lock. Dale stated in addition to the PNC card, an Amazon card was taken but the account has been closed for some time. Dale believes Jessica accessed the cabinet sometime either on the 30th or 31st of October when he allowed her to come to the residence to retrieve some belongings from a bedroom on the second floor.

A roommate of Dales was also present at the time of the report. I asked (roommate) when was the last time he saw Jessica and he advised he last saw her either Friday night (30th) or Saturday morning (31st). Dale stated he wanted to pursue charges against Jessica in this matter.

This case will remain open pending further investigation.

Following Narrative by Det. Reed #507

On 11-08-2020. I was advised by Ptl. Marchionda of a report of credit card fraud that he had taken from a Dale Yaggi on 11-02-2020. After reviewing the case file, I made contact with Mr. Yaggi at his residence. In speaking with Mr. Yaggi, he advised that his daughter, Jessica Yaggi, who was present in the residence at around the time his locked file cabinet had been forcibly entered and his PNC Bank card removed, admitted to him that she took the card and returned it. Mr. Yaggi said that Jessica was at her mother's house, located at 540 W. Oregon Avenue when she returned it to him, and this occurred on either 11-04 or 11-05. Mr. Yaggi said that Jessica admitted to him that she forced open the locked file cabinet, with her stating "it's so easy to get into.

Mr. Yaggi said that he still wished to pursue charges in the matter, with him also providing me with a bank account summary that listed the fraudulent charges. A total of six charges were listed which totaled $108.00. Located the card where used included Taco Bell #1653 in Alliance,Ohio, a Cash App transfer to an Anthony Clarke, Marathon gas station In Alliance, Dollar General #9790 Alliance, Ohio, Circle K #05386 in Alliance, Ohio, as well as Papa John's #0817 in Alliance, Ohio. Mr. Yaggi further advised that Jessica only admitted to having purchased gas using the card.

After speaking wlth Mr. Yaggi, I attempted to make phone contact with Jessica using the phone number provided by Mr. Yaggi. After being unable to do so, I went to Jessica's mother's house, located at 540 ? W. Oregon Avenue. Although a red Pontiac Vibe was in the driveway that was registered to Jessica, I did not recelve an answer when I knocked on the door. Further attempts will be made to contact Jessica before this case is presented for prosecutorial review for charges and the investigation will be ongoing.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

Ashley, who is the manager at the bank, brought over a copy of the transactions showing various amounts from $5.00-$200.00 being sent to a Cash App account in the named Haley Howard. Adding up to $2,961.00 which is not the final amount but what was noticed today.According to Sally, she approved $1,000 dollars to be sent to Haley to help one of her friends out, which was not added to the total sum of money taken. Then following the transaction, after Haley had the access to her grandmother's account she could then transfer more money to her cash app account. She also changed the phone number on the account from hera grandmother's number to her own phone number. Sally stated that Haley has stolen from her before and she thought she has learned her lesson from last time.Sally is 80 years old making this a crime against a protected class and felony 4.

Mutchler was unable to provide me with the number that had been changed on the account, seeing as it had been corrected.After leaving Huntington Bank, I went to 625 W, Maryland Avenue to speak with Haley Howard about the incidents. Upon arriving at the residence, I met Haley at the front door. I advised Haley that the reason that i was there was to speak to her about the money that had been transferred from her grandmother's bank account to the Cash App bearing her (information) , her saying that she understood when I asked. Haley also sald that she was willing to speak to me regarding the matter.Haley went on to say that her grandmother had agreed to transfer $1000.00 from her bank account to Haley's CashApp to help a family friend. Haley said that in order to do this, she linked her grandmothers bank account to her CashApp and then unlinked it immediately afterwards. Haley said that she then linked her Direct Express card to the CashApp, which is how she receives government benefits for her son, as well as received a monetary transfer from her mother using the app. Haley said that she was unsure how her grandmothers card stayed linked to the account and that she never relinked the accounts. Any money that was transferred afterwards Haley said she believed was not coming out of her grandmother's account. Haley then gave me a voluntary witness statement detailing what she had told me.After Haley finished her witness statement, I asked Haley how much maney she receives monthly on her Direct Express card for her son. Haley said that she received about $141.00 a month in benefits. When I asked what other income she had, Haley said that she rents out a house that was owned by her deceased father, with all but approximately $100.00 of that money going to the mortgage on the house. I then expressed to Haley that I did not believe what she was telling me the truth and that I believe her funds would have ran out and not allowed her to continue drawing money out.Haley then said that she didn't mean to steal money from her grandmother and initially only took out $100.00 with the intent of paying her back. Haley went on to say that she has a gambling problem, and "was really not trying to do her any wrong". Haley then said that she and her grandmother had sat at the kitchen table and totaled up the amount of money Haley had taken from her account,with it totaling up to around $2981.00. Haley said that she had not realized she had taken this much money until her grandmother came in the house one morning asking what she had done and saying that her debit card was not working. When I asked Haley if she had made any efforts to hide that she had been with drawing money from her grandmothers account she said that she had not. When I asked Haley how much money she was taking out at a time, she said she had taken increments of $25.00, $5.00 $75.00, and $100:00. When I asked if she would like to add what she had just disclosed to me in her witness statement she said that she would.

I activated my overhead emergency lights, audible siren and turned west onto W Ohio Ave., after the vehicle to intitiate a traffic stop.The vehicle, a dark green Ford bearing Ohio registration HVK3170, pulled into a parking lot in front of 146 W Ohio Ave., and came to a complete stop. Before I could update dispatch of my location and the vehicle I observed the driver begin to exit.I immediately exited my vehicle and ordered the driver to stay in thevehicle. The driver, an older white male, continued to step out of the vehicle, failed to follow lawful commands to remain in and get back in the vehicle. After the driver failed to obey Iawful commands and because I could not ihitially see his hands, I un-holstered my duty weapon and gave the drlver lawful commands to show me his hands. The driver began to slur his speech and stated he did nothing wrong. I requested dispatch to send additonal officers to my location and as I had one at gunpoint.I ordered the driver to face his vehicle and place his hands on the roof. While giving commands to the driver, I observed a second vehicle pull into an adjacent parking lot and sit there facing the stop. After several attempts the driver finally complied and I continued to hold him at gunpoint while addtional officers began to arrive on scene. Switching to less-than-lethal, I drew my X26P Taser and ordered the driver to face away from me and place his hands behind his head. The driver was placed in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked).As soon as I got close to the driver. I could detect a very strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his person. After the driver was safely cuffed, I asked how much he had to drink tonight and he answered two beers. I advised the driver the odor he was giving off smelled a lot more than two beers. Even with the driver handcuffed behind his back and me holding onto his left arm, I observed he was having mild dificulty standing straight up. The driver protested his detention and I advised the reason for the stop was because he blew the red flashing traffic light on E Ohio Ave at N 15th St. The driver argued he slowed down and came to a stop.While standing with the driver next to his vehicle, other officers tended to the second vehicle parked in the adjacent lot. I asked the driver several times, if I removed the handcuffs, would he be willing to consent to field sobriety tests. This question went unanswered as the driver said nothing and stared straight ahead. I was able to get a look at the driver's eyes and observed them to be bloodshot and glassy.At one point, the driver slurred he was scared and did not know what to do. I again asked him several more times, if I removed the handcuffs, wouid he be willing to submit to field sobriety tests.The driver again failed to answer and was informed he was under arrest far suspicion of OVI.The driver was searched incident to arrest for weapons, subsequently escorted to marked unit #304 and secured in the rear of the vehicle. Property found on the driver's person was placed on the roof of his vehicle. Sergeant Kelm and Patrolman Brindack assisted with the administrative vehicle inventory while I informed dispatch to summon a tow truck to the scene and to log one male in custody.The driver of the second vehide was released from the scene after it was determined by other officers she was a friend of arrestee. After checking the driver's property found on his person and not being able to locate any kind of identification, I obtained the driver's name, date of birth and subsequently ran that Information through dispatch. While speaking to the driver, I observed his eyes were getting progressively more bloodshot and glassy.Dispatch confirmed the information provided and the driver, Thomas Davis, was suspended.Sargeant Kelm offered to remain on scene for the tow truck so I could transport Davis back to the station to begin processing. K-9 Patrolman Stanton, Patrolman Brindack and Peterman cleared the scene and I transported Davis to the Sebring Police Department. Upon arrival, Davis was escorted into the audio/video recorded squad room to begin the 20 minute 0bservation period (00:07 to 00:29). Sergeant Kelm arrived at the station following the tow to stand as witness to the reading of the BMV 2255.Davis was taken out of handcuffs and provided a copy of the BMV 2255 to follow along as I read it to him. At the conclusion of reading the BMV 2255 I asked Davis if he understood what was read to him. Davis appeared confused at first and I had to briefly re-iterate what was read to him.I asked Davis if he was willing to submit to to a chemical test(s) and Davis was unable to provide a definitive answer. After going back and forth with Davis he intitally said no but sounded unsure. I gave Davis a second chance to answer more confidently and he agreed to submit to a chemical test.While I tended to the 2255 form Sgt Kelm prepared the intoxilizer 8000. A check of Davis' driving record shows OVI convictions in 2016, 2011 and 2010, a dismissed OVI conviction in 2006.I informed Davis the test results showed a BrAC of 0.209 and that he was over the legal limit of 0.08. I informed Davis he was now under administrative license suspension and although he was already under suspension before he absolutely cannot operate a motor vehicle going forward. Davis was given multiple opportunities to call for a ride and was successful in getting in touch with someone to pick him up.As Patrolman Peterman was attempting to fingerprint Davis, he began to show signs of extreme discomfort and pain in his right wrist. I offered multiple times for EMS to come and check him out and he declined each time. Due to Davis' right wrist allegedly hurting and the prints not showing up on the scanner, it was decided to abandon fingerprinting.Davis was able to provide a signature on the BMV 2255 and was provided a copy. Davis was also provided a copy of the Intoxilyzer 8000 test results as well as a copy of traffic citation #031924 (ORC 4511.19A1A, ORC 4511.19A1H, ORC 4510.11 and ORC 4511.12).

Upon noticing this, I activated my overhead emergency lights, with the vehicle pulling into the driveway of 185 E. Oregon Avenue and stopping. I then approached the Silver Grand Am, which had Ohio temporary tag K593579 attached and made contact with the male driver, who I know to be Larry Gibbons-Rhodes. Makayla Tarbet was also in the front passenger seat.I informed Larry of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. Larry was unable to provide me with his dtiver license but I was positive on his identity based upon prior encounters. In speaking further with Larry, I asked him if there was any weapons or drugs in the vehicle that I needed to concern myself with. I noticed at this point that Larry broke eye contact and appeared very nervous.Ptl. Stanton arrived at around this time with me requesting an open-air sniff be conducted using K9, Radar. Stanton then approached the driver side of the vehicle and made contact with Larry, asking him if he would consent to a search of the vehicle, Larry said that he would, with both he and Makayla then stepping out of the vehicle and joining be near the trunk. Ptl. Russell also arrived at this time. As I spoke with Larry, I noticed the strong odor of marijuana emanating from his person. When I confronted Larry with this, Larry said that he did have a glass "bowl" and that when I had stopped him, he placed it in his girlfriends' purse. Makayla then said that she had it on her person, having retrieved it after Larry did this. Larry said that he did not have any further contraband on him and he did consent to a search of his person with nothing further being located. Ptl. Stanton also found no further contraband during his search of the vehicle.I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation 031900 to Larry for Sebring Codified Ordnance 337.04 (Tail Lights; Illumination of Rear License Plate). Larry was also given a minor misdemeanor citation for Sebring Codified Ordnance 513.121 (Marijuana Paraphernalia). Larry signed both citations, was given his copies, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for further information of case proceedings. All units then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.Ptl.

As the vehicle continued west, I observed the rear license plate was not illuminated. I pulled out of the parking lot onto Harrisburg-Westville Rd behind the vehicle and activated my overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop, The vehicle, a red Chevrolet Silverado bearing Ohio registration PFM7434, came to a complete stop just west of the Oak Ridge Motel.Upon establishing contact with the driver, identified as Amber Shoemaker, I identified myself and informed her of the reason for the stop. While speaking with Shoemaker, I could detect a very faint odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from within the vehicle. Using my flashlight, I illuminated the rear interior of the truck and observed a box of Busch Light and several closed and open cans scattered about. I asked Shoemaker if she had been drinking and if she had open containers in the vehicle. Shoemaker denied drinking but admitted there were several empty cans of beer in the back of the truck.I instructed Shoemaker to exit the vehicle and stand in between her truck and my cruiser while I checked to see if the open cans were in fact empty or not. I pulled approximately 5-6 cans of Busch Light from the rear of the truck and observed very small amounts of liquid still in them. I approached Shoemaker, stood close to her and asked her again if she had been drinking.This time, when she answered no, I was able to detect a more distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath. Shoemaker had a pet dog with her at the time of the stop and I asked her to secure the dog in the truck while I asked her more questions.The more I interacted with Shoemaker, the more obvious signs of alcohol impairment began to show. Shoemaker's eyes started to become more bloodshot as time went on and the alcoholic beverage odor on her breath was becoming stronger. Shoemaker finally admitted to drinking a couple beers earlier at the tractor pull. I asked her to clarify how many beers is a couple beers and she answered five. I turned off my front facing emergency lights and asked Shoemaker if she would be willing to submit to a series of field sobriety exercises to determine whether or not she was impaired. Shoemaker agreed to perform the standardized field sobriety tests.I asked Shoemaker if she had any pre-existing medical conditions, recent surgical operations and if she wore contacts / glasses. Shoemaker answered no to all three questions.Shoemaker was sitting on the rear bumper of her truck before I began to administer SFSTs. As I instructed Shoemaker to stand up away from the truck, feet together with her hands at her sides, I did observe her mildly struggle with her balance. With a flashlight pointed down above her head, I placed a stimulus (extended handcuff key) approximately 12-15 inches in front of her face slightly above eye level.I instructed Shoemaker to follow the stimulus with her eyes and her eyes only, keeping her head still, while standing as instructed earlier. While checkhg for equal pupil size, I did not observe resting nystagmus. WhiIe checking equal tracking, Shoemaker moved her head and was corrected. The following dues were observed in both the right eye and left eye during HGN (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus): lack of smooth pursuit, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation (4 seconds), onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees (onset prior to edge of shoulder). All three were conducted twice for verification.I relocated Shoemaker to the front of her truck so she would have more room to perform the walk and turn. I instructed Shoemaker to stand on the very edge of the right shoulder line where the surface was most flat. Instructions for walk and turn were provided verbally, visually and acknowledged by Shoemaker. During walk and turn, the following clues were observed: Shoemaker did not walk heel-to-toe for some of the steps forward and back, Shoemaker raised her arms more than 6" at least two times for balance, shoemaker did not execute the turn as instructed.Realizing I had forgot to administer VGN (Vertical Gaze Nystagmus) following HGN, I instructed Shoemaker to stand with her feet together, hands at her sides, follow the stimulus with her eyes only, and to keep her head still. I raised the stimulus above Shoemakers head and observed vertical gaze nystagmus in both eyes while I held the stimulus above her head for approximately five seconds. I brought the stimulus back down to eye level and held it above her head again for five seconds and again observed vertical gaze nystagmus in both eyes.For one leg stand, instructions were provided verbally, visually and acknowledged by Shoemaker. The following clues were observed: Shoemaker put her left foot down 3 times during the test. I informed Shoemaker based on her performance and my observations, I would be placing her under arrest for operating a vehicle while impaired. Since Shoemaker had her dog with her, I retrieved the truck's keys from her and allowed her to make a phone call for a friend to pick the dog up from the scene.After successfully contacting a friend, Shoemaker emptied her pockets and placed the contents on the rear bumper of the truck. Shoemaker was placed in handcuffs behind her back (gapped/double locked) and secured in the backseat of marked unit #304. I notified dispatch to log the female driver in custody, send a cover unit and to have a tow truck summoned to the scene. Shoemaker's personal effects were collected and secured in the front seat of the vehicle.Patrolman Peterman arrived an scene to conduct the administrative vehicle invenrory and to standby for the tow. Shoemaker's Friend arrived on scene shortly thereafter to take custody the dog. Shoemaker was transported from the scene to the Sebring Police Department for processing. After arriving at the station, Shoemaker was escorted into the audio/video recorded squad room and taken out of handcuffs.K-9 Patrolman Stanton stood by while I read the BMV 2255 to Shoemaker. At the conclusion of reading the 2255 to Shoemaker, I asked if she understood what was read to her and if she was willing to submit to chemical test(s); Shoemaker stated yes. The twenty minute observation period was conducted from the time I brought her into the squad room (01:21 to 01:41) until the time I brought her to the Intoxilyzer 8000 room. Shoemaker provided two breath samples and was brought back into the squad room. Shoemaker provided her signature on the BMV 2255 Form as did K-9 Patrolman Stanton for being the witness.I obtained the printout from the Intoxilyzer 8000 and provided a copy to Shoemaker. I informed Shoemaker her BrAC of 0.097 exceeded the prohibited concentration of alcohol (0.08) and seized her driver's license. I informed Shoemaker she was now under administrative license suspension and could not operate a motor vehicle going forward. I informed Shoemaker she would have to obtain driving privileges from the court at a later date.Shoemaker was provided a copy of the 2255, traffic citation #031922 (ORC 4511.19A1A, ORC 4511.19A1B and ORC 4513.051, and a signed copy of the recognizance of the accused. I informed Shoemaker due to COVID-19 restrictions, the court would contact her regarding her mandatory appearance at a later date. I advised Shoemaker if she had any questions, to contact the clerk of courts at the number found at the bottom of the citation. I also advised Shoemaker to bring proof of insurance when she went to court. Shoemaker was given her personal effects back and subsequently escorted to the front lobby of the station to wait for her ride.Patrolman D.A.

I announced myself twice before entering the residence with my weapon drawn.During the course of searching the first floor, I observed signs of a disturbance with more shattered glass on the kitchen floor and other items scattered about. As I entered the living room, I located a sawed-off single shot shotgun with a modified taped grip sitting on the couch next to a grey bag that appeared to contain additional shotgun shells. A check of the weapon found the gun to be loaded with a single live Winchester 12ga 3" Magnum shell.The weapon was subsequently cleared, the live round recovered and both items were secured in marked unit #304. I returned and subsequently secured the the bag containing additional shotgun shells in marked unit #304. Out of sight of the victim, I asked Ptl, Russell over the radio if Kastenhuber could describe the shotgun that was pointed at her. Ptl. Russell advised Kastenhuber described the shotgun as shorter than normal and black in color.I requested dispatch to run Dawson's CCH for prior felony and/or domestic violence convictions.Dispatch confirmed through LEADS Dawson was charged and convicted of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle. Ptl. Russell provided me the details of what Kastenhuber had told her.According to Ptl. Russell, Kastenhuber had been assaulted in the bathroom and after managing to get out of the house, Dawson pointed the shotgun at her through the door.After receiving this information, I opened the rear driver door of #301 where Dawson was placed and advised him of his Miranda Rights.

During the early evening hours Kastenhuber took a shower and was subsequently pushed into the shower/tub and struck in the head with a "copper thing" (sic).Kastenhuber stated after she pushed him out of the bathroom, she got dressed and went downstairs to get out of the house. According to Kastenhuber Dawson shut the door and pointed a gun at her head when she attempted to re-enter the rear of the residence, breaking the back door windows.Kastenhuber was provided a domestic violence complaint packet and signed the statement of complaint. Kastenhuber also provided her signature on the authorization for release of medical information earlier in the ambulance in the event she did go to the hodpital. Kastenhuber signed the instructions for filing domestic violence and was provided a copy. Photographs were taken of Kastenhuber's forehead where she was struck and of her right leg where dried blood spots were visible. Additional photographs were also taken inside the bathroom where it was evident a disturbance had taken place.Ptl. Russel transported Dawson to the station for processing while I transported the evidence.Following our arrival at the station, Dawson was escorted into the video/audio recorded squad room where he was kept in handcuffs due to the circumstances and was provided a face mask, I advised Dawson he could have the cuffs removed in the event he wanted to make a phone call or go to the restroom. Dawson was read the charges against him: ORC 2903.11 Felonious Assault (F-2), ORC 2923.13 Having Weapons While Under Disability (F-3) ORC 2919.25 Domestic Violence (M-1).The handcuffs were removed during processing so Dawson could be photographed, thumb printed and DNA collected for the felony charges. According to his CCH, there was no DNA sample on file from his prior felony arrest and conviction. Dawson was informed due to the felonious assault charge his bond would have to be set by a judge and he would be transported to Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown.Dawson was allowed to use the restroom and given the opportunity to place a phone call but did not because he did not know any numbers to call off hand.Dawson's personal property was collected and gathered into a manila envelope.

Brown stated earlier this morning while taking trash out to her cans behind her residence, she discovered two white trash bags in her cans not belonging to her. Brown stated she received a message on Facebook Messenger from a neighbor, at 8:44 AM. In the message, It was conveyed by a neighbor observed Brandon Court carrying trash bags away from his residence and down the alley towards Brown's residence. Brown "screen shot" the message and emailed it to my department email.While walking down to 545 W Ohio Ave where I knew Court resided I requested dispatch to perform a warrant check. Dispatch advised had an active warrant through Stark County Sheriffs Office. Court came to the door after I knocked and when he opened it, I stated "there are some trash bags down the street at one of your neighbors ' that don't belong to her". Before I could finish speaking Court, admitted the bags belonged to him and that he had put them in the trash cans. I asked Court if I could step inside and he granted me access inside of his residence.Court stated he knew he was probably getting arrested because he already knew about the warrant. I informed Court he did in fact have a warrant through Stark County and I would be taking him into custody. I allowed Court to perform some housekeeping tasks and smoke a cigarette due to his calm demeanor and cooperation. I read Court his Miranda Rights in regards to the theft of services and he acknowledged them as well as waiving them to answer any further questions I had.Court was placed in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked), patted down for weapons, and escorted to marked unit #301.Court stated due to a previous surgery on his back, being cuffed from behind and having to sit down causes him great discomfort and pain. I granted Court's request to be cuffed In the front (gapped/double locked) and placed him in the rear of marked unit #301. I informed dispatch I had Court in custody pending confirmation from Stark County Sheriffs Office and to log Miranda.After securing Court in the cruiser, I provided Brown with a statement packet and asked her to write down what happened and if she wanted to file theft charges. Brown provided a written statement and verbally conveyed to me she wanted to pursue charges against Court. I established contact with Brown's neighbor. l informed of the situation and asked if she saw anything. Stated she had video evidence of Court carrying trash bags away from his house and showed me one of the clips from earlier this morning from her home security system. .....emailed 8 video clips to my department email after I viewed one of them showing Court walking away from his residence carrying two white trash bags. I saw similar white trash bags in Court's residence earlier. I cleared from the scene and transported Court to the station to retrieve a face mask for him and provided dispatch with the key to his residence. Dispatch subsequently advised Stark County would be sending a Sheriff's Deputy to meet me at Duke and Duchess on US HWY 62. I gave the face mask to Court for him to put on and transported him to meet with Stark County.While Court was In the backseat of the cruiser, he voluntarily stated he has been trying to clean the house up and because he does not have trash service, he did not think it would be a big deal to put his trash in someone else's cans, especially because there was room. Right before the exchange of custody with Stark County, I informed Court a summons would be drafted for theft and delivered to him at a later date. After the Sheriffs Deputy from Stark County took custody of Court, I informed him I would be faxing a summons to the Sheriffs Office at a later time.Once back at the station and reviewing evidence , a state complaint for ORC 2913.02 Theft (M1) will be drafted and submitted to Mahoning County Court #3.Patrolman D.A.

Ohio Ave.Charge: 2917.11 Disorderly ConductOn 07/17/2020 while on patrol I observed a quickly escalating argument unfolding In the parking lot of Circle K 205 E Ohio Ave. Upon making contact with the two parties Kandy Fredrick and James Kaminski arguing I quickly separated the two at which point my other two units Ptl. Stanton 506 and Ptl. Van Voorhis 519 were arriving on scene. I asked Ptl. Stanton to speak with Circle K employee to see if they had seen what happened and I had Ptl. van Voorhis speak with James while I spoke with Kandy. The following are the stories we received.Kandy Fredricks advised to me that sometime ago James saw her pick up a gentleman walking on the side of the road. The individual happened to be black. Later on, at some point James entered her place of employment which is Dollar General in Beloit and questioned her on why she picked up a black man. According to Kandy James then yelled "white power" and began using the N word. That incident occurred outside of our jurisdiction. On this date when James saw Kandy, she advised he began screaming 'white power" and using the N word again in the middle of Circle K. Kandy then pulled out her phone to record the event which is when the argument moved outside.Circle K employees advised Ptl. Stanton a similar story.According to their account James entered the store and loudly began yelling "white power" and used the N word several times. They advised this action offended them and that James was no longer allowed in Circle K. They also advised that when they asked James to leave he defended his actions and &as arguing with them as well. Simultaneously James advised to Ptl. Van Voorhis that he did yell white power and use the N word because he is retaliating against Kandy because she once called him a "Nigger Hater". James and his wife Amanda admitted that James was wrong and shouldn't be using such words, he also said he said he would willingly never return to Circle K.Statements were obtained from Kandy, and Circle K employees. James refused to do a statement for Ptl. Van Voorhis. While on scene I felt James's action rose to the level of disorderly conduct. I contacted Chief Harris for his opinion and he advised that units should get the statements collect the facts and send everything for review by the prosecutor. If given approval by the prosecutor James could be cited for DOC at a later date. Circle K requested a Notice of restriction, James was verbally advised of said restriction and was told not to return to Circle K.

Ohio Ave.Charge: 2917.11 Disorderly ConductOn 07/17/2020 whlle on patrol I observed a quickly escalating argument unfolding In the parking lot of Circle K 205 E Ohio Ave. Upon making contact with the two parties Kandy Fredrick and James Kaminski arguing I quickly separated the two at which point my other two units Ptl. Stanton 506 and Ptl. Van Voorhis 519 were arriving on scene. I asked Ptl. Stanton to speak with Circle K employee to see if they had seen what happened and I had Ptl. van Voorhis speak with James while I spoke with Kandy. The following are the stories we received.Kandy Fredricks advised to me that sometime ago James saw her pick up a gentleman walking on the side of the road. The individual happened to be black. Later on, at some point James entered her place of employment which is Dollar General in Beloit hnd questioned her on why she picked up a black man. According to Kandy James ihen yelled "white power" and began using the N word. That incident occurred outside of our jurisdiction. On this date when James saw Kandy, she advised he began screaming 'white power" and using the N word again in the middle of Circle K. Kandy then pulled out her phone to record the event which is when the argument moved outside.Circle K employees advised Ptl. Stanton a similar story.According to their account James entered the store and loudly began yelling "white power" and used the N word several times. They advised this action offended them and that James was no longer allowed in Circle K. They also advised that when they asked James to leave he defended his actions and &as arguing with them as well. Simultaneously James advised to Ptl. Van Voorhis that he did yell white power and use the N word because he is retaliating against Kandy because she once called him a "Nigger Hater". James and his wife Amanda admitted that James was wrong and shouldn't be using such words, he also said he said he would willingly never return to Circle K.Statements were obtained from Kandy, and Circle K employees. James refused to do a statement for Ptl. Van Voorhis. While on scene I felt James's action rose to the level of disorderly conduct. I contacted Chief Harris for his opinion and he advised that units should get the statements collect the facts and send everything for review by the prosecutor. If given approval by the prosecutor James could be cited for DOC at a later date. Circle K requested a Notice of restriction, James was verbally advised of said restriction and was told not to return to Circle K.

Vermont Ave, Sebring OH Charge: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORC 2919.25 (A)Narrative by Ptl. Reed #507On 07-13-2020 at 28:15 hours Ptl. Peterman and I were dispatched to Circle K at 205 E. Ohio Avenue, regarding a report of a female subject who was assaulting a male. Upon arriving, I found a crowd of approximately a dozen people assembled outside of the business. As I approached, I asked what had happened, with a female employee of Circle K pointing to a female subject that was standing near the entrance to the store, who I know to be Sherrie Simpson, and saying that she was beating on a guy in a white car. When I asked Sinipson if the person who she had been fighting with was Patrick Levelle, she said that it was. It should be noted that I have handled domestic violence incidents between Simpson and Levelle in the past.I then placed Simpson in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked, before patting her down for weapons using the back of my hand. I noticed fresh cuts and blood on Simpsons hands at this time. I then secured Simpson in the back of Patrol car 301 so that I could determine who had witnessed the incident and what exactly they had seen.All agreed to provide voluntary witness statements detailing what they had seen. I was also advised that the male half was now at the far end of the parking lot in his vehicle. I then instructed Ptl. Peterman to gather information and statements from the witnesses so that I could speak to the male subject.Upon making contact with Patrick Levelle, who was sitting in a white Pontiac G8 at the other end of the parking lot, he advised that he had come to Circle K to get his dog from Simpson. Levelle said that Simpson had been drinking, left their house with the dog, and that she was trying to give it away at the store. Levelle said that he also went into the store to get cigarettes and upon coming out, got back into his vehicle, which was when he was approached by Simpson. Levelle said that Simpson then began striking him in his face and head through the open window of his car. Levelle also said that Simpson began striking the car as well, with her causing damage to the plastic rain guards on the driver side door. Pieces of the rain guards were laying in the parking spot where Levelle said that he had been parked at during the incident. When I asked Levelle if he were injured or needed medical treatment, he said that he was okay and was not injured. He also confirmed that he and Simpson still cohabitate together as boyfriend and girlfriend. I then briefly stepped away from Levelle so that I could check on what the witnesses had to say. While doing this, I overheard Simpson screaming profanities at Levella from the back of my patrol car. Because of this, I instructed Levelle to wait for me in the parking lot of Gionino's pizza. I also moved my patrol car to a parking spot. While in my patrol car I spoke to Simpson, with me reading her her Miranda rights. When I asked Simpson what had happened, she would only say that "it doesn't matter".In speaking with the above listed witnesses, they all advised that Simpson had been at the store for approximately 45 minutes with the dog, that she was trying to give it away, and that Levelle had come to get the dog. The witnesses said that Simpson had approached Levelie while he was in his vehicle and began hitting him and the car, causing the damage to the rain guards. None of the witnesses said that they had seen Levelle attempt to fight back, nor had he at any point hit Simpson. I was also advised that Simpson had been drinking a long island iced tea while she was at the store.I then went back to speak with Levelle in the parking lot of Gionino's. Levelle signed the domestic violence complaint form as well as provided me with a witness statement detailing his side of events.When I asked if he wished to pursue criminal damaging charges for the damage that Simpson had done to his car, he said no, and that he believed she would be in enough trouble with the domestic violence charge. I then photographed the damage to Levelle's vehicle as well as a small amount of blood that was on the driver side door and that Levelle said he believed was from Simpson cutting herself while punching the car. Levelle then signed the domestic violence instruction form, with me tearing off a copy from the domestic violence packet and giving it to him. Levelle then left.Because the evidence indicating that Simpson was the sole aggressor in the incident she was placed under arrest for domestic violence. Upon returning to the police station I reviewed her computerized criminal history (CCH). Because of two or more convictions for domestic violence or assault being present, Simpson was charged with a third-degree felony count of domestic violence, Ohio Revised Code 2919.25(A). After being photographed and the necessary paperwork completed, Simpson was transported to the Mahoning County Jail. Due to the degree of the offinse bail will be determined by a judge. Nothing additional to report at this time.Ptl.

The vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of Texas Avenue and South 15th Street. I then exited my patrol car, made contact with the single male driver, and informed him of the reason for the stop. Because of where we were stopped at possibly obstructing the flow of traffic, I instructed the driver to turn right on South 15th Street and pull several car lengths in.

When asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance, the driver was able to produce an Indiana Driver License that identified him as Eliyah Payton.

Patrolmen Brindack, Stanton, and I immediately preceded to this location, with me arriving shortly after Stanton and Brindack. As I pulled into the parking lot, I observed both officers standing outside a silver Cadillac CTS, which had Ohio temporary registration K466904 attached. The vehicle was occupied by a single male subject who was sitting in the passenger seat. Upon making contact with him, I advised him of the complaint that we had received and asked if he had any identification on him. The subject identified himself as Josh Williams (age 36), and advised that he and his friend had just pulled in and that his friend had gone inside the store. When I asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle, Williams said that there was not. I also asked Williams if he would step out of the car. Williams then stepped out of the car, with him also granting me permission to perform a search of his person. No contraband or weapons were located.At this point, I also noticed another Silver sedan parked in the parking lot. This vehicle also had temborary tags attached to it. I then requested Ptl. Stanton to perform an open-air sniff with K9, Radar, on the Cadillac CTS. Stanton advised that Radar did indicate a positive hit on the vehicle. An open-air sniff performed on the other sedan in the parking lot yielded negative results. Ptl. Brindack then went and retrieved the vehicles driver, Fred Smith, from inside Circle K. In speaking with Mr. Smith, I informed hirn,of the complaint that we recieved as well as the fact that Radar had indicated that the odor of drugs was present in the vehicle. When advised of this, Smith said that he had smoked marijuana in the car earlier.Upon performing a probable cause search of the vehicle, I located four circular blue pills in the center console that were wrapped in aluminum foil. The pills were stamped "C1" and later determined to be 1mg Clonazapam, a schedule IV-controlled substance. I also found what appeared to be two THC cartridges near the pills. Mr. Smith did admit that this is what they were, with him saying that he smokes them through through a vape. When confronted with the pills, Smith said that they belonged to his girlfriend, Kristen, with him saying that she had left them there earlier and that she had a prescription for them. Smith's driver license was also found to be suspended. I informed Smith that because I had not encountered him driving on a public roadway, I would not issue him a citation for driving under suspension, but that he would need to get someone with a valid driver license to drive the car home. Smith then called a Delia Thompson, whom the vehicle was registered to, so that she could drive the car home.In speaking further with Smith about the pills, I asked for his girlfriend's name again. Smith then went through his phone, with him spelling out her name as Christina. When asked what her last name, was Smith said that he did not know and that he had only been talking to her for a couple of weeks. I advised Smith that I would be confiscating the pills and that should it be possible for his girlfriend to receive them back, they would receive a phone call from the police department.Delia Thompson then arrived to drive the Cadillac home. Smith was advised to contact the BMV regarding his driver license seeing as he said that he had paid a reinstatement fee and that his license should be valid. Thompson was advised that she needs to be sure that Smith's license is valid before allowing him to take a vehicle registered to her in the future or she could face wrongful entrustment charges. I then cleared from the call and returned to the police station. Upon writing the evidence cards for the confiscated pills and cartridges. I noted that only one of the two items I thought were THC cartridges were in fact that. The other item was a small glass container which appeared to possibly have residue of a crystalline substance inside. Both items will be secured in temporary evidence locker #1.

The vehicle has one working stop light while engaging the brakes. After I initiated the traffic stop, I asked the driver and the owner who identified himself as Randy Phillips if I was allowed to search the vehicle. They both advised me no. l then asked if they had any nuclear devices or explosives in the vehicle at this the. They again advised no. I then asked them if they had any narcotics or forms of drugs in the vehicle, they again advised me no.At this time, Ptl. Brindack #504 and Sgt Kelm #503 were on scene. I then asked the driver to turn the vehicle off and exit the vehicle. The were asking why and I advised them that I will be conducting a "free air sniff' with my K-9 as I am the handler and for my K-9's Safety I require them to exit the vehicle, all four passengers complied. The owner of the vehicle, Randy Phillips was very upset about this and stated it was "bullshit" rnultiple times. Once all 4 individuals exited the vehicle I deployed K-9 Radar. Radar started from the rear of the vehicle and went to the passenger side, nothing was found.Keeping the leash loose in hand I walked with Radar to the front of the vehicle. Radars behavior began to change and he went under the vehicle into the engine compartment as I kept moving to the opposite side. Radar disengaged and began sniffing down the drivers side of the vehicle. Again Radars behavior changed and he went under the half way point of the vehicle to sniff the under carriage. This was brief as I kept moving toward the rear of the vehicle. Radar began moving with me then rapidly snapped backwards toward the sewage compartment and shower intake hose connector on the said vehicle. Radar locked and stood still staring at the shower intake as I praised him off. I moved toward the front of the vehicle and disengaged completely from the source. I then re-engaged and deployed radar along the drivers side of the vehicle to verify my source and moved along the side of the vehicle with the leash loose in hand. Radar again locked on the side of the vehicle next to a compartment next to the hose intake. Radar stood in place and locked his gaze on to the compartment. This change in behavior confirmed my findings and I praised him off to continue to the rear of the vehicle to finish the sniff. Radar at this time went to the the driver rear corner of the vehicle and led me back to the intake source (wraping around the drivers side of the vehicle) as previously stated. At this time I rewarded Radar and walked him back to secure him in my cruiser.I informed the four individuals K-9 Radar hit on the vehicle and I will be conducting a search given proper probable cause by my K-9. The owner again stated this is "bullshit" and began walking toward the vehicle. I instructed the owner to stay where he is at or he will be arrested. Throughout the search of the vehicle, every time I stepped out of the vehicle or around the vehicle in eye sight of the owner he attempted to move closer to open compartments for me. Sgt. Kelm and Ptl. Brindack also stated he offered to get a slice of pizza for them since they had some pizza in the vehicle. Upon searching the vehicle I discovered 7 grams of green leafy substance and various paraphernalia for grinding the green leafy substance. This was found in the oven in a "fanny pack" underneath the pizza box. I completed my search with no other findings. The person who claims the items belonged to him was Michael Host.

Oregon Ave. Sebring, OHCharge: ORC 2903.11(A)(1) Felonious Assault (F-2)On 06-23-2020 at 06:24 hours, I was requested at the police station to speak to a subject. Upon arriving, I met with a Tiffany Stine in the lobby area. A Hunter Harper and Branty Smith arrived shortly after. Tiffany had blood streaming down from her nose and she was also bleeding from a cut on her scalp. She was emotionally distraught and having trouble catching her breath to tell me what had happened. Tiffany was eventually able to explain to me that she had been assaulted by her brother, Dustin Stine, at their residence at 745 W. Oregon Avenue. Tiffany said that at around 06:00, she, her boyfriend, Hunter Harper, and their friend, Branty Smith, had gone to her house to pick up her brother to give him a ride to work. Prior to entering the residence Tiffany said that she could hear her brother throwing things in the house and screaming. Tiffany said that aside from her brother, no one else was in the house.Tiffany said that she and Harper then entered the house and that her brother was in his room with the door locked. Tiffany said that she knocked on the door and her brother opened it, with him then "getting in her face". Tiffany said that she pushed him back slightly and that he then began punching her in the face. Tiffany did say at this point that she "swung back", and that Harper attempted to intervene but was overpowered by Dustin, who then pulled her to the floor and continued striking her in the face and body. Tiffany said that everything went black at that point but she knew that she had been hit in the head with a picture frame. Sebring Fire/EMS arrived to assess Tiffany, with me speaking with and obtaining witness statements from Branty Smith and Hunter Harper.In speaking with Harper, he also advised that upon arriving to the residence they could hear Dustin inside screaming. Harper said that Tiffany entered the house first and that he could hear her saying "get away from me", with him then going inside and seeing Dustin punch Tiffany in the nose. Harper said that he got in between them and that Dustin then threw a picture frame at Tiffany that struck her in the head. Harper said that they then left and came to the police station.In speaking with Smith, he advised that he walked into Tiffany's house and saw her and Dustin fighting and that he began to try to break them up. Smith said that Dustin took Tiffany to the ground and that he saw him hit her in the face. Smith did say that upon getting up he saw Tiffany approaching Dustin, with Dustin then picking up a picture frame that he threw at Tiffany, striking her in the head. Smith said that they then left and came to the police station. A Timothy Billiter, who identified himself as Tiffany's step father arrived to the police station at around this time as well.Sebring Fire/EMS then transported Tiffany to Alliance Community Hospital for treatment. Prior to transporting her, I was able to get photographs of Tiffany's face, scalp, and marks that she had on her left arm. Upon arriving to the Emergency Department (E.D.), I again made contact with Tiffany, who was still very emotionally distraught. Tiffany was able to provide a witness statement as well as sign parts of the domestic violence complaint form and medical release form before medical staff came in to staple the wound on her scalp. Tiffany did state multiple times that she wanted her brother charged. Tiffany was provided with an instruction for filing domestic violence form as well. I then left the hospital to return to the village and attempt to locate Dustin.In speaking with Chief Harris on the phone, he advised that Mr. Billiter was going to bring Dustin in to the police station. Upon returning to the station, I met Dustin in the lobby area. Dustin accompanied me back to the squad room where I read him his Miranda rights and asked if he understood and if he would like to speak with me about the incident. Dustin said that he did understand and wanted to talk about what had happened. Dustin said that he and his sister began arguing because he would not go get cigarettes. Dustin said that Tiffany threatened to not give him a ride to work, and that he then closed his bedroom door and began slamming drawers. Dustin said that Tiffany, Smith, and Harper then left and returned a short time later, with Tiffany then coming to his bedroom door with a knife and asking him what he is breaking. Dustin said that Harper then placed himself between the two in an attempt to prevent an altercation, and that Tiffany began trying to work past Harper to hit him. Dustin said that while Tiffany was hitting him, he was able to grab the knife from her, with it then being thrown to the floor. Dustin said that he and Tiffany proceeded to the Kitchen where they continued to fight and that Tiffany was able to get the knife a second time, with her threatening to stab him. Dustin said that he again was able to take the knife from her and that things began to de-escalate. Dustin denied ever having thrown a picture frame at Tiffany and said that while she was attacking him, he pulled her by her hair and that she probably hit her head on something while this was happening. It should be noted that I did not observe any marks on Dustin aside from abrasions to his left knuckles as well as minor scratches between his thumb and pointer finger on his left hand. Dustin said that after taking the knife from Tiffany the second time that he hid it under some magazines on a desk in the office room of the house. When asked about prior incidents of violence between him and his sister he made mention of an incident that occurred approximately six months ago when his sister was abusing Xanax and assaulted their mother. A later check through the department dispatch system showed a domestic dispute between Dustin and his mother on 03/03/2020, a physical altercation between Dustin and his sister , and a physical altercation between Dustin and his mother's boyfriend on 03/08/2017.Due to the severity of Tiffany's injuries as well as evidence pointing to Dustin being the primary aggressor, I placed him under arrest for felonious assault, ORC 2903.11(A)(1). Dustin was placed in handcuffs which were properly spaced and double locked. I then began to complete the necessary arrest paperwork, with Dustin sitting on the other side of the desk from me in the squad room. Dustin began screaming that he should not be getting arrested. He then slammed his head into the desk several times, resulting in a cut to his forehead. I did pull Dustin away from the desk at this point to prevent further self-injury from occurring. Ptl. Villanueva arrived shortly after and Sebring Fire/EMS arrived to assess Dustin. After completing the necessary paperwork and being treated by Sebring Fire/EMS, I transported Dustin to The Mahoning County Jail. Once at the jail, medical staff rejected Dustin due to them requiring medical clearance from a hospital due to the wound on his head. I then transported Dustin to Mercy Health St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he was treated and discharged for the injuries to his head. He was then transported to The Mahoning County Jail without incident, where he was held without bail pending further court proceedings. Ptl.

Upon turning my patrol car around, I initiated a traffic stop on the subject just before Johnson Road. Upon making contact with the subject, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his identification. The subject gave me an Ohio Identification card, which identified him as Branty Smith. When I asked where he was going, he said to pick up food at Zep's Pizza. I then asked Smith if he had anything illegal on him, with him saying that he did not and granting me permission to search his pockets. Upon searching the small pocket on the right side of Mr. Smith's pants, I located a small baggie containing a light-colored powder substance. I then instructed Smith to place his hands behind his back in order for me to handcuff him. Mr. Smith then sprinted away, running westbound across the street, with me pursuing.While pursuing Smith, I yelled for him to stop multiple times, as well as drew my department issued taser and advised him that if he did not stop, I would taser him. While running through the front lawn of a residence on the south side of Oregon Avenue, I tripped, falling to the ground, with Smith continuing on behind the residence. As I came around the back of the residence, I lost track of where Smith had gone. Upon going back toward my patrol car, a male subject from a residence on the north side of the road came out and told me that his wife believed that she had seen Smith come out and hide behind some bushes at a house on the south side of the road, back toward 20th street.Upon checking this area, I was able to locate Smith hiding behind the bushes in the front lawn of a residence on the south side of the road. At taser point I ordered Smith to come out and to keep his hands where I could see them. At around this time I was joined by Smith Township patrolmen Toussant and Caughey, as well as Sebring Patrolman Peterman. I then pulled Smith out from the bushes, with Caughey placing him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked. Smith was also thoroughly searched for additional weapons or contraband with none being located. I then walked Smith back to my patrol car, reading him his Miranda rights on the way there. When I asked Smith if he wished to speak to me regarding the matter, he stated "I'm sorry for running, that's all I got to say".Smith was then taken to the Sebring Police Station where he was photographed, finger printed and processed. Smith was charged with a minor misdemeanor charge of Lights and reflectors on Bicycles (Sebring Codified Ordnance 373.06), as well as one second degree misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business (Ohio Revised Code 2921.31). Smith was given a $1000.00 own recognizance bond, with him signing the recognizance form and being instructed to contact the court on Monday for instructions on further proceedings.

He then began looking for his license in his wallet before finally handing it over to me.I could detect an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked Scott if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to operating his motor vehicle and Scott said no before eventually stating he has had a couple of beers. I asked Scott when he consumed the alcoholic beverages and he said probably since 5 in the morning.I notified dispatch that the traffic stop was a possible OVI and Ptl. Brindack alrived on the scene to assist. I asked Scott if he would take the SFST's (Standardized Field Sobriety Test's), Scott said he would. I turned off the front portion of my light bar and had Scott exited his vehicle. I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to his side and his feet together and I asked if he had any medical conditions or had a head injury recently to which Scott stated no to the questions.I then checked Scott's eyes for a resting nystagmus, equal pupil size, and equal tracking. Scott did not have a resting nystagmus, both of Scott's pupils were of equal size, and both of Scott's eyes tracked equally. The first test was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus after explaining the instructions I asked Scott if he understood and he said he understood. Once the test began, I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and Onset nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.The next test was the Walk and Turn, I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to his side and his right foot in front of his left foot and told him to stay in that position until instructed otherwise. I performed the test to demonstrate it, once I told Scott the instructions, I asked him if he understood and Scott said that he did understand. Clues that I observed were could not keep balance and started too soon. He then attempted to stand in the position but fell over and advised me he couldn't because he has a bad leg. I then asked him why he didn't tell me about his leg when asked before and he stated he's never been to a doctor for it. I then asked if he would get back into position and he stated he wouldn't be able to because he's going to fail. Officer Brindack then asked if he was refusing the test and Mr. Alzner stated he was not and began doing the test before I gave instructions. I then asked him to stop and go back into the position he was instructed to stay in until I explain the test and so he attempted to again and tipped over again. He then stated again he can't. So due to the failed attempts and him stating he could not do the test we stopped this portion of the SFST's.The next test was the One Leg Stand, I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to his side and his feet together and told him to stay in that position until instructed otherwise. He stated he understood and I began to perform the test to demonstrate. Once I told Scott the instructions, I asked him if he understood and Scott said that he did. Clues I observed were he could not keep balance and he stopped the test multiple times before finally refusing this test as well and so he was placed in custody for suspicion of OVI and place in hand restraints, read his rights and search by Ptl. Brindack before being placed in the rear of marked until #304. Ptl. Brindack performed an inventory of the vehicle and stood by for Springer's Towing that towed the vehicle to 10 N. 12TH St.I transported Scott back to the police department where I performed a 20-minute observation period and while doing so I asked Scott if he would be willing to submit to a Urine and Breath test in which he agreed. Due to not having an lntoxilyzer 8000 Operator at station, Scott was transported to Alliance Police Department to have the test done. Officer McCord observed as I read BMV 2255 form and once it was complete, McCord obtained a breath sample from Scott which the results were BAC 0.269 9/210L.I informed Scott that he was now under administrative license suspension and was not to operate any motor vehicle and I confiscated his driver's license. Scott had not had any prior convictions for OVI in the last 10 years. Scott was issued a traffic citation for OVI (SFST) ORC 451 1.19A1A, OVI (>.17) ORC 4511.19A1 H, and Left of Center ORC 4511.29. Scott was cited into Mahoning County Court #3 personal appearance required on 05/28/2020 at 9:00am.After paper work was completed and Scott received copies of his traffic citation which he signed, the BMV 2255 form and his breath results. Scott was released on his own recognizance with a bond amount of $500.00.Ptl.

Having knowledge Sebring and Smith Township officers were at this address very recently, I went ahead and initiated mutual aid and requested Patrolman Caughey to respond. Upon arrival, having knowledge person(s) in the residence recently tested positive for COVID-19, we put on face masks and gloves prior to approaching the residence.As we approached the front door, a male later identified as Robert Doak exited the front door and appeared confused as to why we were there. A short time later, a female identified as Nicole Ketler exited the front door appearing upset and distraught. Patrolman Caughey and I separated the parties and talked to them individually. I spoke with Doak on the front porch while Patrolman Caughey spoke with Ketler in the front yard.Doak claimed nothing happened and any marks on Ketler were a result of the two having consensual sex the previous night. Ketler claimed Doak had been physically abusing her today, yesterday and so on. Ketler claimed the two did not have sex; that all marks on her body were from him assaulting her and throwing objects at her. At first observation, I saw Ketler's neck to be red with marks on her upper chest and a minor scratch on her neck. I observed what appeared to be hickeys on the left side of her neck that Ketler claimed were not from consensual sex. I also observed some bruising and track marks on Ketler's left arm. As Ketler spoke, her voice appeared to be strained and hoarse.Ketler stated Doak has been assaulting her for days and had even choked her out before our arrival. Ketler also claimed Doak threatened to kill her and put her in a coma. Doak, appearing calm but somewhat agitated, denied all of the accusations against him. Ketler claimed she did not have sex with Doak because of his HIV positive status. Doak did admit to being HIV positive and made several remarks indicating the two had been sexually active.Ketler stated she was in fear for her life going forward and when asked, advised she wanted to pursue domestic violence charges against Doak. Doak was instructed to turn around and place his hands behind his back. Doak was cuffed (gapped/double locked), informed of the charge against him and informed of his Miranda Rights which he stated he understood and that he was willing to waive them to provide a statement later at the station. Doak was subsequently searched for weapons and secured in the back seat of marked unit #303.I presented the domestic violence complaint packet to Ketler and explained it to her. Ketler signed the domestic violence complaint and denied the offer for medical attention. Photographs were taken of Ketler's neck, upper chest and left arm. At this time, Patrolman Vanvoorhis arrived on scene to relieve Patrolman Caughey. I provided Ketler with the domestic violence information sheet and explained the steps she needed to take going forward. I retrieved a voluntary written statement packet to Ketler and explained it to her. I left Ketler in the company of Patrolman Vanvoorhis to complete her statement while I transported Doak to the Sebring Police Department for processing. Before departing the scene, I obtained Doak's prescription medications from Ketler.Following my arrival at the station, Doak was escorted into the audio and video recorded squad room where his cuffs were removed. Doak was provided with gloves and a face mask due to his COVID-19 positive status. Doak was allowed to make phone calls as well as access to water and the restroom. Doak was photographed and informed due to past felony domestic violence convictions, he would be transported to the Mahoning County Justice Center and his bond set by a judge at a later date.After being notified by dispatch, I placed a call to Chief Harris who informed me due to Doak's COVID-19 positive status, that I was to place him in a cruiser as soon as possible to minimize contamination of the station. Before doing this, I again informed Doak of his Miranda Rights on camera. Doak acknowledged his rights and invoked them; changing his mind from earlier. Doak was placed in handcuffs behind his back again (gapped/double locked) and secured in the back seat of marked unit #303. Patrolman Vanvoorhis arrived at the station with Ketler's statement and remained outside to monitor Doak. The rear windows of #303 were rolled completely down and Max A/C put on high.After gathering all the appropriate jail paperwork, I transported Doak to the Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown. The Mahoning County Justice Center accepted custody of Doak where he will remain until his appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on Thursday, May 28, 2020. I returned to the Sebring Police Department to complete all appropriate paperwork and to review Ketler's voluntary written statement.According to Ketler's statement, Doak has been physically abusing her throughout their time in quarantine and she is in fear for her life. Ketler claims she has witnesses that can corroborate her statements but none were at the residence while we were there. At the end of her statement, Ketler claimed to have picked up a metal vase and struck Doak in self defense; a detail she did not convey while I was on scene. Doak never reported any injuries to me and I never observed any to his person.Patrolman D.A.

Upon arriving to the residence I made contact wit the caller / complainant, Aaron Wood. Mr. Wood advised that while walking home from Circle K he was walking down the sidewalk when he was bit by a tan pit bull breed dog. Wood said that the dog came from either the yard or the porch of the house directly across from the fire station and that several people who were sitting on the porch called the dog back. Wood showed me a tear in his pants on his right thigh as well as a puncture wound to his left thigh. Wood's wound and the tear on his pants were each photographed. Wood also declined medical treatment when offered but did provide me with a voluntary witness statement that I told him I would return later to pick up.I then proceeded to 246 East Ohio Avenue, where I found Budd Kuyper, Crystal Black, Glenn Fournier, and George Carl sitting on the porch. Also present was a tan female pit bull, named Mischief, that Budd said belonged to him. In speaking with Budd he did admit that his dog had gotten loose from the porch and attacked Wood. Budd said that he didn't think the dog had actually bit Wood and admitted to only seeing her "nip at him". Budd provided me with a voluntary witness statement as well as documentation that his dog had received a rabies shot last month. I then left Kuyper's residence, returned to wood's to pick up the witness statement, and then cleared from the call. Upon returning to the police station I was able to verify that Kuyper had received a dog at large warning letter in March after Mischief bit a jogger. Because a prior warning letter had been issued I wrote minor misdemeanor citation 000240 to Kuyper for Dogs running at large (SCO: 505.01). I then returned to Kuyper's residence where he signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact the court to find when future proceedings in the case are. I then cleared from the call. A copy of a dog bite report form was forwarded to the Mahoning County Board of Health and I also left a message with the dog wardens office regarding the incident. Nothing additional to report at this time.Ptl.

Reed #507On 05-10-2020 at 01:28 hours, I was dispatched to a domestic violence incident at 426 East Vermont Avenue. Upon arrival I met the caller/complainant, Patrick R. Levelle, in the driveway to the residence near the road. Mr. Levelle was bleeding from a cut on his head and had the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his person. Mr. Levelle advised that his live-in girlfriend, Sherrie Simpson, had hit him with an incense burner causing the cut on his head. Levelle did say at this point that he wished to pursue charges in the matter. Levelle further advised that Simpson had fled on foot prior to officers arrival and that she was wearing a light colored top with blue jeans. This matched the description of a female subject who I had passed on East Virginia Avenue behind the high school while enroute to the call. I informed Ptl. Russell of this over the radio with her searching the area. Several minutes later dispatch advised that Simpson was at the police station.In speaking further with Mr. Levelle, he advised that Simpson was intoxicated, taking Ativan in addition to drinking alcohol, and that she had attacked him without provocation. Levelle said that she also "tore the Hell out of his house". Sebring FireIEMS arrived at this point with me then going inside the house with Mr. Levelle and the EMS squad. I did note that inside the kitchen was a skillet and food thrown on the floor around it. Levelle provided me with a broken incense burned that he said Simpson had struck him with. The incense burner had an ornamental dragon. The head to the dragon matched the wound on Levelle's head.Levelle was then transported by Sebring Fire/EMS to Aultman Alliance Hospital for treatment. While Levelle was on his way to the hospital, I went to the police station to meet up with Ptl. Russell, who was speaking with Simpson. Upon arriving, I found Ptl. Russell and Smith Township Sergeant Davis speaking with Simpson in the back parking lot of the police station. The four of us then proceeded into the squad room where I spoke to Simpson regarding the matter. It should be noted that I advised Simpson that she was not under arrest but did read her Miranda prior to speaking with her. I could also smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Simpson.Simpson advised that she had been with Levelle throughout the evening at his daughters house as well as her friends house in Alliance. Levelle allegedly became upset regarding having been rejected membership by a motorcycle club, and began arguing with her. Simpson said that Levelle continued to berate her throughout the the time that they were with his daughter and during the drive home.Simpson further advised that upon returning home Levelle "threw her around" but said "I don't know" when asked to elaborate. It should be noted that Simpsons lips were visibly swollen and had cuts on the insides of them and her hands and clothing had blood on them. It was also later noticed that she had an abrasions on her scalp and scratch on her neck. These injuries were photographed. When asked if she had struck Levelle with the incense burner she denied having done so.After speaking with Simpson, I went to Aultman Alliance Community Hospital to speak with Levelle. Levelle said that the couple had been at his daughters house on Milton Street in Alliance before going home. Levelle also again said that Simpson had been drinking throughout the evening. Levelle went on to say that upon coming home, Simpson wanted to continue to drink, Levelle said that Simpson then attacked him without provocation and that he had never struck her back. When confronted with the injuries that Simpson had he said that he again said that he never hit her. Levelle also began saying that he did not want Simpson to get in trouble and that he did not want to pursue charges. I advised him that due to the severity of injuries between the two that the state would pick them up.Upon being discharged from the Emergency Department (E.D.) I took Levelle into custody. While in the E.D. he was placed in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked, as well as searched incident to arrest. He was then brought back to the police station for processing, with it later being discovered that he had a prior domestic violence convictions. Because of this he was charged with third degree felony Domestic Violence (ORC 2919.25A).Simpson, who was also found to have prior domestic violence convictions was charged with third degree felony domestic violence as well. It did appear that both subjects were aggressors in the incident. when asked if there were firearms in the house, both subjects advised that there were not.After processing, I transported Levelle to the county jail in car 301 with Ptl. Russell transporting Simpson in car 303. Due to the degree of offense both subjects will require bail to be set by a judge.Domestic violence packets were gone over with both subjects. The incense burner was collected as evidence and secured in temporary evidence locker #1. The injuries to both parties were also photographed as evidence. Nothing additional to report at this time.Ptl. Reed #507>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Following Narrative by Ptl. Racheal Russell #510On May 10,2020 myself and Ptl. Reed were dispatched to 426 E. Vermont Ave for a Domestic Violence complaint. Upon arrival I was met by Ptl. Reed who stated the female involved had took off on foot last known walking Westbound on E. Virginia Ave. Ptl. Reed stated he believes he passed her while responding to the call. I had then cleared the scene in attempts to locate her. I arrived in the area of E. Virginia and was then quickly notified by dispatch the female was in the back-parking lot of the Sebring Police department. I then left the area to respond to the Sebring Police department. Ptl. Reed remained on scene with the alleged victim.Upon arriving at the Sebring Police department, I observed a female sitting on the ground that appeared to be sobbing speaking with Smith Township Sgt. Davis. I made contact with the female and Sgt. Davis. I identified the female as Ms. Sherrie Simpson. Ms. Simpson stated her and her boyfriend had got into an argument while visiting at his daughter's house in Alliance that turned into physical violence when they returned home. I was advised her boyfriend is Patrick Levell. Sherrie stated Patrick became verbally abusive because he had been drinking alcoholic beverages while they were visiting with his daughter by calling her a whore. Sherrie stated her boyfriend drinks a lot after work and verbally abuses her until it leads into physical violence. I was advised this happens often.On the above date Sherrie stated when they returned home from Alliance, she attempted to make food in the skillet, but Patrick became angry and tossed it around the kitchen. I was advised that is when Patrick became physically violent with her by pushing on her until she fell to the floor. Sherrie stated Patrick started to choke her by putting his arm around her neck while she was on the floor but he did not hold her in this position for long. Sherrie stated Patrick hit her in the face several times but is unsure if it was with an open or closed hand. Sherrie stated she threatened to call the police but Patrick took her phone from her. I was advised when she was able to get away from him, she left to come to the police department. I observed Sherrie to have a swollen busted open lip, a mark on her left check, a small scratch on her neck, blood in her hair and all over her clothing and a scrap on her scalp. Sherrie stated the blood came from her nose and lip. Photographs were taken of Sherrie'sinjuries.I was then notified by Ptl. Reed that Patrick was being transferred to the Alliance community hospital ER due to a head injury. Patrick advised Ptl. Reed, Sherrie struck him in the head with an incense burner with a dragon on it. Ptl. Reed advised me the injury on his head matches the dragon on the incense burner. Ptl. Reed responded to the hospital with Patrick.I asked Sherrie if at any time she hit Patrick with the incense burner because of the information I just ' received. Sherrie started to laugh and stated "I bet he does have an injury". Sherrie then stated "She does not believe she hit him at any time because she would not have had time due to him pushing her around. I asked what she did when was able to get up from the floor. I was advised she ran out the door to come to the Police department for help. I was further advised Patrick will cause harm to himself just to get her arrested.I then checked for prior Domestics on Sherrie finding two with convictions and two assaults with convictions. There was no protection order in place between the two parties. I then advised Sherrie was being charged with Domestic Violence 2919.25 F3 due to the injury to the head. While I was working on the booking process Ptl. Reed brought Patrick in booking. Sherrie became verbally aggressive knowing he was in the building.

Peterman #511 4/25/2020On arrival, I spoke with the victim, Matthew Thurman, who states "Bryan Tewksbury came up to me and smashed me in the back of the head with a flashlight". Matthew had a small hoodie pressed against his head, and when I asked him to lift the hoodie up, observed a large amount of blood on the back of Matthews head, and a large contusion on the upper left portion of his head that was still bleeding. I advised Matthew to keep applying pressure until medics could arrive to treat his injury. I advised dispatch that Matthew was in need of medical attention from Sebring FD. Dispatched relayed information to Sebring FD, and had medics dispatched to 246 E. Ohio Ave.Ptl. VanVoorhis #513 arrived at this time to assist me as I relayed information from several witnesses who saw Bryan Tewksbury running from the scene of the crime shirtless, and wearing khaki shorts and a pair of sneakers. Witnesses also report Tewksbury running up to two individuals, one being a female walking with a baby stroller, then running off east toward his residence on the 300 East block of Indiana. Ptl. Marchionda #505 radioed to dispatch at this time he had Bryan Tewksbury held at gun point at his residence, 336 E. Indiana Ave. I asked Matthew if he wished to press charges against Bryan Tewksbury and he responded "Fuck yeah I would". Sebring FD arrived on scene at this time to treat Mathew of his injuries. Myself and Ptl. VanVoorhis left the victims residence to assist Ptl. Marchionda #505. Smith Township PD Ptl. Caughey #377, and Smith township PD Ptl. Toussant #380 arrived with myself and Ptl. VanVoorhis #513 at the residence and saw Bryan Tewksburys father, Chris Tewksbury, approaching Ptl. Marchionda #505 in a threatening manner asking "what the fuck are you doing to my son". I approached Chris and advised him to move away from the area to which he responded "I'm calling my lawyer; you have no right to do this". Ptl. Marchionda #505 had Bryan detained in handcuffs at this time, and was seen bleeding heavily from a deep laceration to his right hand. I again advised Chris he needed to get away from the area, and he backed to the end of their driveway. Ptl. Marchionda #505 requested me to provide aid to Bryan. I retrieved my first aid bag from my patrol vehicle, and obtained a roll of thick gauze, and properly applied it to Bryans right hand.After applying first aid treatment, Sebring FD arrived on scene to provide further medical care and transport. I spoke with Ptl. Marchionda #505 who advised me to obtain witness statements and collect evidence at the crime scene. I advised dispatch I was clear from Bryans residence, and was enroute to the previous address. I arrived back at 246 E. Ohio Ave. and spoke to another resident there, Budd Kuyper, who states "Bryan came to the front door and knocked. As I answered the door, I noticed Bryan was acting erratically as none of his statements were making any sense.". Budd also states "I let him inside, and he kept asking where Matthew was, and I saw his hand was all bloody". Budd states "I heard a loud thud, and came outside to see him (Bryan Tewksbury) on top of Matthew, punching and yelling at him".After speaking to Budd, I requested he provide me with a written statement. Budd agreed, and I finished collecting evidence for processing. Bryan was pink slipped due to his erratic behaviors and injuries and transported to Aultman Alliance, and Matthew was also transported to Alliance Aultman Hospital for his injuries. Ptl. Marchionda #505 followed medics to Aultman Alliance Hospital to retrieve as witness statement from Matthew, then cleared back to Sebring. All parties cleared the scene without further incident.This report will be forwarded to the prosecutor for approval on the charge of Felonious Assault 2903.11 (A)(2).Ptl. Peterman #511 4/25/2020Following Narrative by Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis Unit #513On April 25,2020 at 1642 hours I was dispatched to 226 E Ohio Ave for an assault in progress between two males. Upon arrival I observed Patrolman Peterman's cruiser out front of the house. I asked him via radio where he was and he said outback. Once I got to the back yard I observed Matthew Thurman bleeding from his head standing on a wheelchair ramp. Matthew was standing with Budd Kuyper and speaking to Patrolman Peterman. Patrolman Peterman pointed out a flashlight that was used as a weapon to strike Mr. Thurman in the head. He explained he got photos already and I could collect it for evidence. Mr. Thurman advised both units that Brian Tewksbury was the one who attacked him.Before collecting, I spoke to Mr. Kuyper about the incident asking where it took placeat. The place the fight happened was in the back yard by an entry door to the basement. There were droplets of blood surrounding the door, a bloody palm print on the metal ramp and blood on the flashlight on the ground. I then put gloves on and proceeded to collect the evidence, and radioed to Patrolman Marchionda to look for our suspect last seen East on Ohio since Patrolman Peterman and myself had the first scene secure.Medics arrived at 226 East Ohio to treat Mr. Thurman. About 10 minutes later Patrolman Marchionda called over the radio that he had found the suspect at his residence and the suspect ran inside the house. The next transpission from Patrolman Marchionda was that he had the suspect Brian Tewksbury at gunpoint and he needed assistance. Both Patrolman Peterman and myself responded to the residence along with Smith Township officers to assist. Once on scene I observed Mr. Tewksbury on his knees facing Patrolman Marchionda with his hands behind his lower back. Mr. Tewksbury was bleeding from his hand with blood behind him on the front porch and all over his body and clothes. Mr. Tewksbury said, "He said that to my girl, what would you do?" referring to the incident. He said multiple times the same statement, "He said that to my girl, what would you do?".While Patrolman Marchionda covered the suspect, I went over and picked him up to be cuffed as he was having trouble understanding commands from Patrolman Marchionda. Mr. Tewksbury appeared to be muttering random words and sentences. He also could not keep his focus while he was being talked to. He was also unstable on his feet without being held up. He was detained in cuffs for the time being. Patrolman Peterman wrapped his hand with gauze while medics arrived.Once the squad arrived, he was taken out of cuffs and pink slipped to the hospital to be evaluated. Patrolman Marchionda followed the squad to the hospital and while there I asked him for a statement from the victim Mr. Thurman. Patrolman Peterman and myself then went back and began looking for witness' and taking statements. Due to the location of the fight no one could see much detail and it appeared no one, other than the two involved, know who swung first. Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis Unit #513Following Narrative by Ptl. Marchionda #505While responding to a report of a fight at 246 E Ohio Ave, I observed Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis already on scene. Radio traffic indicated our suspect to be Brian Tewksbury and that he had fled east on E Ohio Ave on foot after striking another male in the head with a flashlight.Patrolman VanVoorhis requested for me to canvas the surrounding area for Tewksbury.While searching the immediate area, radio traffic indicated Tewksbury was last seen walking with two females. Smith Township Patrolman Caughey flagged me down on N 12th St near E. Maryland Ave and advised he observed two females on foot near N 13th St and E Indiana Ave. Having previously dealt with Tewksbury in the past and knowing his residence to be 336 E Indiana Ave., I proceeded to that address.As I neared the aforementioned address, I observed a shirtless male quickly run into the of the residence. Simultaneously, radio traffic indicated Tewksbury fled the scene shirtless. As I approached the residence, I observed several droplets of fresh blood in the driveway and on the front porch. I realized the shirtless male I observed rushing into the house was Tewksbury and began,to knock on the front door while shouting his name.I observed even more blood near the front door and due to the door being unlocked, my knocking caused it to open slightly. Believing Tewksbury was inside the residence, possibly injured and may be in possession of some type of weapon, I kicked the door open and remained on the front porch. With my duty weapon unholstered and at the low ready, I gave loud commands for Tewksbury to exit the residence.Tewksbury appeared still shirtless with blood covering his arms and torso with his right hand not visible. I ordered Tewksbury out of the residence at gunpoint onto the front porch. Tewksbury was acting erratically and speaking incoherently but responded to my commands to exit the house, place his hands behind his back and get on his knees. I updated dispatch of the situation and broadcasted one male at gunpoint. This radio traffic prompted response from Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis as well as mutual aid response from Smith Township.As backup was arriving on scene, Tewksbury's father from the neighboring residence began to quickly move up behind me. While maintaining cover on Tewksbury with my duty weapon, I unholstered by taser and ordered Tewksbury's father to back up. After seeing the father comply, I turned my attention back to Tewksbury as officers were arriving onto the front porch. Smith Township Patrolmen Caughey and Toussant arrived on scene as Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis were assisting me with Tewksbury.Observing a serious injury to Tewksbury's right hand, I instructed Patrolman Peterman to retrieve his medical kit from his cruiser and tend to Tewksbury's injury, which was bleeding profusely.Tewksbury was detained using handcuffs behind his back while continuing to act erratic and speaking incoherently. Patrolman Peterman wrapped Tewksbury's injury with fresh sterile gauze as Sebring EMS personnel began to arrive on scene.Tewksbury was escorted to Medic-2 and handcuffs removed. After consulting with Sebring Fire Chief Springer, the decision to pink slip Tewksbury was made. Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis cleared the scene and proceeded back to the original location of the call to obtain statements. Smith Township Patrolmen Caughey and Toussant cleared at this time as well. I followed Medic-2 as they transported Tewksbury to Aultman Alliance Community Hospital.Upon arrival at Aultman Alliance, I was informed by Patrolman VanVoorhis over the radio the victim had already been transported a statement was needed. After ensuring Tewksbury was escorted into IS0 in the emergency department without incident, I established contact with the victim, identified as Matthew Thurman. Thurman allowed me to take photographs of his blood-stained clothes and injury. Thurman provided a brief voluntary written statement advising Tewksbury struck him in the back of the head with a flashlight.After photographs were taken and a statement obtained, I returned to the village to assist Patrolman Peterman, who was still at the original location of the call. Patrolman Peterman advised he secured the flashlight as well as a bloodied hoodie used by the victim. I returned to the station and obtained a CCH for Brian Tewksbury from dispatch. A request for the following charges will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office for review: ORC 2903.11 (A)(2) Felonious Assault, a felony of the second degree and ORC 3701.352 Violations Prohibited, a misdemeanor of the second degree.Patrolman D.A.

Reed stated she and her former boyfriend, Christian Tuel, had recently started talking to one another. Reed admitted during casual conversation she sent provocative media of herself to Tuel and the conversation took a turn she became uncomfortable with. Reed provided her iPhone and allowed me to view the message threat spanning back to sometime on Wednesday, March 11,2020.I observed the snapchat text conversation and found Tuel's messages to be degrading and controlling towards Reed. Several messages from Tuel contained cruel remarks and some contained demands for Reed to send pictures of her tits to Tuel. Reed's responded and told Tuel no and several of the messages telling Tuel to stop and leave her alone but Tuel continued to message her back, swearing and saying degrading things to her. I had Reed screenshot the entire conversation and send them to me department e-mail address. Printouts of the conversation will be placed in the case file.I provided Reed with a voluntary statement packet, explained how to fill it out and the consequences for falsification. While writing her statement, Tuel messaged her on snapchat. With Reed's permission, I took her iPhone and called Tuel using the snapchat call feature. Tuel answered the phone and it seemed as if he was pretending to not hear me when I spoke. After getting Reed to speak, Tuel acknowledged her voice and then I took over. I identified myself as a patrolman with the Sebring Police Department and gave Tuel lawful commands to leave Reed alone, to stop calling and messaging her, and to delete her contact information from his phone. Tuel stated "Yes Sir" and hungup the phone.Before leaving the residence, I informed Reed should Tuel contact her again in the near future by any means, to screenshot the messages and call logs and phone the station or contact me directly through my department email.

Johnson Rd and Route 62CITE: Eric Hamon (AGE 44)165 E. Michigan Ave. Sebring, OH 44672OVI 4511.19A1A / BOND $500.00Assured Clear Distance 4511.21AAt 2253 hours, on March 19, 2020, 1 responded to an accident report involving a Sebring Police car at the intersection of N. Johnson Rd, and route 62. Upon arrival, I found that Sgt. Kelm and Ptl. Vanvoorhis had been sitting facing southbound in car 302 on N. Johnson Rd at the intersection with route 62 when they were struck by another southbound vehicle. Upon exiting my patrol car I was advised by Sgt. Kelm that no one was injured.I then approached the grey Ford Focus, bearing Ohio registration HVK3172, and made contact with the male driver, later identified as Eric W. Hamon. In speaking with Mr. Hamon, I asked what had happened this evening, with him stating that he was just trying to go to Perkins Restaurant but that they were closed and then the accident occurred. Hamon said that he had been at home on Michigan Avenue prior to this. I noticed that Mr. Hamon's eyes were glassy, his movement was very delayed, his speech was slurred, and he seemed to have difficulty comprehending what I was saying to him, as was evident by his delayed responses. I also noted the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from inside the vehicle. When I asked Mr. Hamon if he had been drinking at all, he advised that he had not.Because of my observations indicating that Mr. Hamon was possibly under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both, I requested that he step out of the vehicle. Once out of the vehicle, I asked him to accompany me back toward my patrol car. While we were walking between our cars, I noticed that he was very unsteady on his feet. With Mr. Hamon's consent, Pt. VanVoorhis conducted a search of his person, locating a prescription pill bottle containing 0.5mg Clonazapam that had Hamons name on it. I also again asked Hamon If he had consumed any alcohol, with him saying that he had not. I then turned off the headlights as well as front facing lightbar of my patrol car. At this point, I asked Mr. Hamon if he would submit to field sobriety tests to determine if he were okay to drive, with him agreeing to do so.I began the tests first with the horizontal gaze nystagmus test (HGN). I asked Mr. Hamon if he were taking any other prescription medications, with him saying just Paxil and Prozac and that he had taken them in the morning. Hamon also said that the last time that he had taken any of the Clonazepam was about six hours before. Hamon said that he had no issues with his eyes nor did he wear corrective lenses. I began the HGN test by instructing Hamon to place his feet together and arms at his side. I told him to follow my fingertip with his eyes, his eyes only, and not to move his head. After giving him these instructions, I asked if he understood, with him saying that he did. Using my flashlight in a downward angle for illumination, I held my fingertip approximately 12 inches from Hamon's face. I noticed no resting nystagmus. In going further with the test, I did however note lack of smooth pursuit, onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees, as well as distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation. I noted no vertical gaze nystagmus. These clues were observed in both eyes.Next, I began the walk and turn test. Instructed Hamon to place his right foot in front of his left foot, keep his arms at his side, and not to begin until I told him to do so. After demonstrating the test to him I asked Hamon if he understood, with him saying that he did. Hamon was then advised to begin the test. While Hamon was performing the test, I noticed that he did not touch heel to toe, and stepped off the line. Hamon also did not turn around but instead began to walk backwards.After completing the walk and turn test, we began the one-leg stand test. I instructed Mr. Hamon to stand with his arms at his side, and to raise the foot of his choice approximately six inches off the ground and count in a one-thousand one, one-thousand two, one-thousand three pattern until told to stop. Mr. Hamon said that he understood and began the test. Mr. Hamon swayed while attempting to balance and put his foot down approximately five seconds into the test.At the conclusion of the tests, I asked him if he were sure that he had not consumed any alcohol. Hamon then changed his story and said that he had drank 3 hard ciders at about 10:00pm. Ptl. Stanton arrived at around this time with a portable breath tester (PBT) that I had requested. I asked Mr. Hamon if he were willing to blow into it, with him agreeing to do so. Mr. Hamon then blew into the device; however, he did not fully close his lips around the straw. The PBT showed a reading of 0.67.Due to Mr. Hamon's performance on the SFST's being present with the odor of alcohol, I placed him under arrest for suspicion of OVI. I then placed him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked, before placing him in the back of car 303. Hamon was then brought back to The Sebring Police Station where I read him his Miranda rights, which he said that he understood. Harmon agreed to speak with me regarding the matter. I asked him if the physician who prescribed him his Clonazepam had informed him that he should not mix it with alcohol, with him saying that he had.Harmon was then photographed, fingerprinted and processed. I also read the Ohio BMV 2255 form to him and instructed him that he was being placed under and administrative license suspension until told otherwise by the courts. Hamon agreed to provide a breath sample with his blood alcohol level showing as 0.154 g1210L. The breath sample was collected by Sgt. Kelm. When asked for a urine sample, Hamon said he tried but was unable to produce any urine. He was then given citation number 031878 for Operating a vehicle under the Influence (ORC 4511.19A1A) as well as assured clear distance for striking the patrol car (ORC 4511.21A). After signing the citation, he was given his copy before being released on a $500.00 own recognizance bond. Hamon was instructed to contact the court tomorrow to determine when his court date would be seeing as the courts are closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Nothing additional to report at this time.Ptl.

I arrived on N 14th St north of E Michigan Ave and found the vehicle stopped in the northbound lane unoccupied. Upon exiting my cruiser, I observed a white male running towards me with a white female running behind him from E Vermont Ave.I unholstered my X26P Taser and instructed the male to show me his hands and place them on the hood of my car while I ordered the female to stop, raise her hands and get down on her knees (she stated she was pregnant at this time). Patrolman Brindack arrived on foot from the high school and secured the male, placing him in the backseat of my cruiser. After ensuring the female had no weapons on her person, I retrieved her information and identified her as Laurie Fryman. Fryman stated she was the passenger in the vehicle and had video on her smartphone of a dispute between her and her boyfriend, later identified as Gary Baddeley. Chief Harris arrived on scene at this time to assist.Fryman stated she was picked up from the library on W Ohio Ave by Baddeley and as the two were in the car, Baddeley began to berate her, cuss at her and ridicule her. Fryman stated while they were on N 14th St, Baddeley unbuckled her seat belt and began to brake check violently in an attempt to slam her into the dash and windshield. Fryman showed me the 42 second video on her smartphone. In the video, Fryman can be heard screaming "What are you doing?" as Baddeley is shouting back at her "why aren't you wearing your seatbelt?". Fryman is seen moving back and forth, consistent with Baddeley braking the vehicle.During the video, Baddeley can be heard yelling for Fryman to get out of her car and near the end can be heard screaming, "GET OUT OF THE CAR NOW, I HATE YOU, I CANT FUCKING STAND YOU! YOURE FUCKING NASTY, YOU'RE FUCKING UGLY, YOU FUCKING PlSSED YOURSELF, GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY CAR NOW!' At the point the video ends, Fryman states this is where Baddeley got out of the car and began throwing her belongings into a ditch on N 14th St near E Michigan Ave. Fryman stated while Baddeley was doing this, she reached into the car, turned the ignition off and ran with the keys. Fryman stated she threw Baddeley's keys into a bush around thecorner on E Vermont Ave.Fryman stated Baddeley never struck her during the altercation. After speaking with Fryman, I spoke with Baddeley, who was secured in the back seat of my cruiser still. Baddeley's story was consistent with Fryman's except he denies unbuckling her seat belt and denies purposely brake checking to harm her. While speaking to Baddeley, Patrolman Brindack requested EMS be dispatched to the scene at the request of Fryman to be evaluated by medics. Sebring Fire Medic-1 arrived on scene and subsequently cleared with a refusal.Baddeley and Fryman currently have no children together and the child Fryman is currently carrying may or may not be Baddeley's. Contact was made with Baddeley's roommate and it was learned Fryman does not reside with Baddeley on N 13th st, that she only stays there and actually lives in West Salem. Baddeley's roommate declared over speaker phone Fryman does not live there and does not want her back at the residence. Baddeley was taken out of handcuffs and instructed to remain sitting in the back of my cruiser with the door open while I generated a minor misdemeanor citation.Baddeley was issued minor misdemeanor citation #000481 for SCO 509,03(a)(2) Disorderly Conduct and informed of his mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 0900. Baddeley stated he wanted to pursue theft charges against Fryman for taking his keys out of the ignition, running away and throwing them into a bush. Since Baddeley was successful in retrieving his keys, I informed him to come to the station at a later time to provide a written statement and the report would be forwarded to the prosecutor's office to determine if enough evidence existed for a theft charge to be filed. Baddeley was released from the scene at this time.Fryman's belongings were retrieved from the ditch on N 14th St and placed in the trunk of my cruiser. I provided Fryman with a courtesy transport to the station where she was advised she could wait until a family member or friend could pick her up. While on station, I asked Fryman if she would consent to the video being downloaded from her phone onto a department computer.Fryman consented to my request and was provided with a permission to search form. The form was explained to her and a signature was subsequently obtained. The 42 second video of the altercation was downloaded from Fryman's smartphone onto a department computer. Following receipt of the video, Fryman was escorted back to the lobby to wait for a ride. Chief Harris later informed me after a discussion with the prosecutor, Fryman's actions did not rise to the appropriate level for a theft charge to be considered.Patrolman D.A.

While sitting stationary at the intersection of N. Johnson Road and W. Ohio Avenue, I observed a red Ford Ranger approach the intersection from the west on Ohio Avenue, before turning left and proceeding northbound on Johnson Road. As the vehicle drove past me, I noticed that its exhaust was loud and the rear license plate light was not functioning.I then positioned my patrol car behind it, activated my overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop on the red Ranger, bearing Ohio registration HJU 4149. Upon approaching the male driver, who was the vehicles sole occupant, I requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver handed me an Ohio driver license that identified him as Michael V. Candella, but was unable to produce the other requested documents, with him advising that the truck belonged to his girlfriend and he was unsure where she kept them.Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Candella's information to dispatch, with it being advised that his license was suspended and that the vehicle was registered to a Kaylyn Arkwright. Ptl. Scott arrived to my location at around this time and the two of us again approached the vehicle, with me advising Candella of his suspended license and asking him to step out of the truck. Upon stepping out of the truck, I performed a pat down of Candellas person before taking him back and having him sit in the back of car 304. An administrative inventory of the vehicle was then conducted, with no contraband being located. Upon returning to my patrol car I wrote Candella citation # 031877 for SCO: 335.07 (driving under suspension) and SCO: 337.04 (license plate light required). When asked how soon the vehicles registered owner, who had a valid driver license, could get there, Candella advised within a few minutes. I then decided that in lieu of towing the vehicle, I would allow a valid driver to come pick up it. At around this time, an emergency call came in and Ptl. Scott cleared from the scene, with me remaining on the stop.Due to Arkwright not arriving in a timely manner and the ongoing emergency call that Ptl. Scott was on, I issued Cordella his citation after he signed for it and was advised of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 on Thursday, March 12,2020 at 9:00am.
