On 13 Oct 05 Deputy Sheriff Kapple assisted the Ohio State Highway Patrol investigating a crash involving Willard L. Lightfritz, age 48, 1607 Hill Street Apt. 2, Belpre. Mr. Lightfritz was attempting to flee when Raymond Campbell, age 22, 307 Barnett Ridge Road, Belpre, offered to open the gate so Mr. Lightfritz would not damage the fence. Mr. Lightfritz accelerated toward Mr. Campbell, who dove out of the path of the truck before Mr. Lightfritz crashed through the barbed wire fence owned by Wayne N. Flower, 3110 Braun Road, Belpre. As a result of Mr. Lightfritz’s actions Deputy Kapple requested summons for him for menacing and for criminal damaging.

On 13 Oct 05 Deputy Sheriff Kapple responded to the scene of a domestic dispute involving a fifteen year old and his thirty-three year old mother. Initially the juvenile stated his mother jabbed him in the forehead with a set of keys because she believed he stole her medication and marijuana. However, he later recanted his story, saying he grabbed his mother’s hand and hit himself multiple times. He also confessed he filed the false report because he was mad at his mother and desired to not stay with her. As a result, Deputy Kapple arrested the juvenile for being delinquent and transported him to the Washington County Juvenile Detention Center.
