On 18 Mar 09 Ralph Drains, age 18, 4945 School House Road, Little Hocking, suffered minor injuries and was transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital as a precaution after an accident at Miller’s Supply on State Route 7 in Marietta. Mr. Drains and another employee were working on a piece of equipment called a pumpjack when his abdomen became temporarily pinned between parts of the pumpjack. The other employee freed Mr. Drains shortly thereafter by lifting the part that had Mr. Drains pinned (1090).

On 18 Mar 09 Lynsey Erb, age 21, 811 Pioneer Community Road, Saint Marys, reported she was visiting a friend at 1308 Williamson Avenue Apt. 3B, New Matamoras when she was assaulted by the residents of other apartments. Outside the apartments, Ms. Erb said Ivy M. Ferrell, age 18, Apt. 3C, began yelling at her and accused her of waking her sleeping child. Hearing the argument, Betty Dunn, age 60, Apt. 2E, exited her apartment, grabbed Ms. Erb’s hair and would not let go. Not wanting “to hit an old woman,” Ms. Erb grabbed Ms. Dunn’s arms. At that time Ms. Ferrell struck Ms. Erb and began punching and kicking her in the head when she fell to the ground. Another nearby resident, April D. Wells, age 20, Apt. 3E, entered the fray as Ms. Erb walked away and spit blood on the ground. Ms. Wells punched Ms. Erb in the back of the head and kicked her numerous times when she fell to the ground. Interviewed by Deputy Sheriff Eddy, Ms. Ferrell and Ms. Wells minimized their involvement and would not divulge information on the other parties involved. As a result of the incident, Deputy Eddy arrested Ms. Wells and Ms. Ferrell for assault and transported them to the Washington County Jail. Deputy Eddy also requested a warrant for disorderly conduct for Ms. Dunn’s role in this case.

On 18 Mar 09 T.J. Cronin, age 40, 150 Mile Run Road, Marietta, reported a suspect shot a number of paintballs at items on his property, splattering paint on a dusk to dawn light and on two of his vehicles. Mr. Cronin declined to pursue the matter further because he feared retaliation by the suspect (1090).

On 18 Mar 09 Raymond Johnson, age 56, 678 Walsh Road, Vincent, reported he was involved in a heated argument with his son after his son returned the ATV he borrowed covered in mud and with a broken axel.
