Sharing is caring!

BAY VILLAGE, Ohio — Drunken driving, Obsorn Road: Shortly before 1 a.m. July 14, an officer suspected that a driver was impaired and stopped his Subaru on Osborn west of Forest Drive.

In addition to the driver, there were three passengers in the car.

The driver, who stated that he was the designated driver, failed sobriety tests and was arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired. The three passengers were released at the scene.

The 25-year old Cleveland man was processed at the station before being released on personal bond to a sober adult.

The Bay Village Police Department noted in a press release that designated drivers should abstain from alcohol.

Argument, Knickerbocker Road: A resident called police at about 9:50 p.m. July 11 to report that a man and woman were having a verbal argument.

The caller stated that at one point, the woman had been on the hood of the vehicle involved.

When officers arrived, they found a 23-year old Westlake man and a 21-year North Royalton woman standing next to a silver Audi. They both agreed that there had been some yelling related to their recent breakup. The woman claimed that her ex-boyfriend had slapped her and bitten her thumb, according to police. When he had tried to leave, she had gotten onto the hood of the Audi in order to detain him.

Officers found no evidence of physical injury. Pictures and information for a report are to be forwarded to the prosecutor, according to police.

Impaired driving, Winsor Drive: Officers responded at about 1:50 p.m. July 12 to the area of Winsor and Bayview for a report of a verbal dispute.

The caller stated that it was between the occupants of two vehicles last seen heading east on Winsor toward Bassett. The first arriving officer found a Mercedes stopped on Bassett near Foote.

As the officer positioned his patrol car behind the Mercedes, he saw the driver and two passengers exit the vehicle and begin pushing it into a driveway. Other officers pulled up to assist, and as they approached the driver, he took off running.

Police eventually found him hiding in a brush area behind a home on Applewood. When asked why he ran, the 30-year from Ravenna said it was because he was driving under suspension. He also had warrants from two separate law enforcement agencies, according to police.

While police processed the man at the station for operating a vehicle while impaired and other charges, the man asked officers numerous times to take off their badges so he could fight them, according to police. He was held for video arraignment with Rocky River Municipal Court.
