On 22 Apr 07 Deputy Sheriff Sirianni requested
a summons for a thirteen year old Marietta resident to appear
in Juvenile Court for being unruly. The teenager’s parents
phoned for help as a last resort when their repeated attempts
at discipline failed. Directed to complete chores, the juvenile
sat in the middle of the road in an act of defiance. In the
past the parents also said their son screams obscenities at
them and on one occasion struck his mother in the face.

HIGH SPEED CHASE RESULTS IN ARREST
Shortly after midnight on 22 Apr 07 Deputy Sheriff Staats
attempted to stop a black Eagle Talon he observed traveling
90 mph on State Route 7 near milepost thirty-nine. Activated
his lights and sirens, Deputy Staats continued to pursue the
vehicle driven by Eric D. Conley, age 27, 46091 State Route
7, New Matamoras, and requested assistance from New Matamoras
Police Chief Bourne. A rolling roadblock failed to terminate
the chase, as Mr. Conley attempted to strike both of the pursuing
vehicles. Conley continued on in excess of 100 mph then turned
onto State Route 260 where he lost control of his vehicle near
milepost two, left the roadway and rolled over. Deputy Staats
noticed an odor of alcohol on Mr. Conley and observed several
empty bottles as well as spilled beer on the passenger seat
in the vehicle. Admitting he consumed several beers and smoked
marijuana, Mr. Conley was belligerent and uncooperative when
transported to the hospital and had to be handcuffed and taped
to his bed. Conley was charged with a felony count of fleeing
and eluding and misdemeanor counts of speeding, OVI and driving
under a suspended license. Additional charges may be forthcoming.
