On 7 Mar 09 the Beverly-Waterford squad transported a female and two males to Marietta Memorial Hospital following a minor ATV accident on property owned by the Pioneer Motorcycle Club located near the intersection of Angle and Muskingum River roads in Waterford Township.

The other male fell off the ATV on which he was a passenger when the driver stopped and turned abruptly after seeing the other ATV roll. The ATV then drove over the fallen passenger, causing minimal injury. All of the ATV riders are members of the club and were treated and released from the hospital (1106).

On 7 Mar 09 Deputy Sheriff Mankins transported a twenty-nine year old Beverly resident to Marietta Memorial Hospital for a mental health evaluation after responding to a 911 hang up call.

On 7 Mar 09 Christy Delaney, age 52, 106 Arborgate Drive, Marietta, reported she and her sister were walking on Dunedin Road that afternoon when two teenagers fired a pellet gun and struck her in the buttocks.

On 7 Mar 09 Deputy Sheriff K. Travaglio issued a citation to Gary L. Murphy, age 60, 220 Kern Drive, Marietta, for failing to stop at a stop sign. Deputy Travaglio stopped Mr. Murphy after he failed to stop at the intersection of Kern Drive and State Route 676 in Marietta Township.

On 7 Mar 09 Deputy Sheriffs Norman and S. Travaglio responded to a report of an intoxicated male staggering along State Route 60 and carrying a brown paper bag possibly containing alcohol. Locating the suspect, identified as Everett L. Knighten, age 46, 249 Germantown Road, Lower Salem, near State Route 821, Deputy Travaglio noticed dirt and grass on Mr. Knighten’s clothing from where he apparently fell to the ground. Mr. Knighten appeared highly intoxicated and was in fact in possession of an open bottle of whiskey in the paper bag he carried. Asked why he was walking along the roadway, Mr. Knighten commented he lived alone and could not find a ride so he was walking back to his residence. For Mr. Knighten’s safety, Deputy Travaglio arrested him for disorderly conduct by intoxication and transported him to the Washington County Jail. At the jail Mr. Knighten tested .211 BAC.
