On 18 Dec 08 Lt. Coppernoll, while working
as resource officer at Warren High School, investigated an
assault committed by a fifteen year old student on a sixteen

On 18 Dec 08 Matthew Belt, age 36, 740 Cole-Coffman
Road, Marietta, injured his middle and ring fingers during
his shift at Eramet. Transported to the hospital, Mr. Belt
said he suffered the injury when he unhooked a chain and the
excess chain loosened and fell on his hand. A witness confirmed
the incident was purely accidental (608).
On 18 Dec 08 Deputy Sheriff Carr requested
a summons for a twelve year old Belpre resident to appear in
Juvenile Court for being unruly. The girl’s stepfather
reported the juvenile was upset that she was asked to do the
dishes and began hitting the walls, throwing things and screaming.
When Deputy Carr arrived at the home the juvenile was visibly
upset and crying. She said she didn’t think it was fair
that she was asked to do the dishes.
On 18 Dec 08 Norma Hanson, age 21,18001 State
Route 676, Marietta, reported she was at her estranged husband’s
residence to allow him to see their son when the two engaged
in an argument over their failed marriage. Ms. Hanson said
her husband, Drew E. Hanson, age 22, 460 Coal Run Drive, Lowell,
grabbed her by the neck and tried to force her out of the room
where they were arguing. Able to grab her son and escape, Ms.
Hanson exhibited marks on her neck consistent with her account.
Mr. Hanson tried to provide a plausible explanation for his
actions, saying his wife pushed him and wrapped her arm around
his neck. However, evidence was not present to support Mr.
Hanson’s version of events. As a result, Deputy Sheriff
Richards arrested Mr. Hanson for domestic violence and transported
him to the Washington County Jail.
