On 9 Apr 09 Deputy Sheriff McLeish was dispatched to the scene of an altercation at 6101 State Route 60, Lowell. The involved parties admitted a minor skirmish took place but declined to pursue charges in the matter.

On 9 Apr 09 the Little Hocking Fire Department transported a twelve year old Blairsville, GA resident to Camden Clark Hospital following an ATV crash at 3909 Braun Road, Belpre. Witnesses stated the juvenile lost control of the ATV and suffered minor injuries to her head and face. Hospital officials said the girl’s injuries are not severe and not life threatening (608).

On 9 Apr 09 Sgt. Eddy and Deputy Sheriffs McLeish and Reynolds were dispatched to a melee at 13669 County Nine Road, New Matamoras. The home’s resident, Kelly J. Hanes, age 39, said the incident began when she was speaking on the phone to Augustine Brunoni Jr., age 28, 8411 County Nine Road, Newport, about his vehicle that was broken down and sitting on her property. Ms. Hanes mentioned her teenage son may have entered Mr. Brunoni’s vehicle and consumed two prescription pills he found in it. Mr. Brunoni flew off the handle and before long appeared at Ms. Hanes’ residence along with his mother Karen, age 51. On the front porch the Brunonis began yelling, screaming and tried to enter the residence. A friend of Ms. Hanes, Thomas J. Humphrey, age 31, 14075 County Nine Road, New Matamoras, was at the residence and said he attempted to calm Mr. Brunoni when Brunoni attempted to punch him. The punch missed and Brunoni instead struck his mother. During the incident Mr. Humphrey took Mr. Brunoni to the ground, at which time Ms. Brunoni stumbled off the porch and fell on her son’s arm. The Brunoni comedy of errors concluded when Mr. Brunoni screamed his arm was injured and was released from the ground. As a result of the incident Deputy Sheriff Reynolds requested summonses for Mr. Humphrey, Mr. Brunoni and Ms. Brunoni for disorderly conduct. Deputy Reynolds will also request a summons for the juvenile to appear in Juvenile Court on a charge of delinquency for stealing the medication.

On 9 Apr 09 Patty L. Schmidt, age 54, 10015 State Route 260, New Matamoras, reported she began staying at a relative’s home on 4 Apr and when she returned to her home five days later she noticed her Kubota tractor, a sixty inch mower deck and scraper blade were missing.

On 9 Apr 09 Deputy Sheriff Reeder responded to the scene of a fire at the residence of Lynn Smith, age 49, at 1103 Mill Branch Road, Belpre.
