On 13 Sep 09 a fifteen year old Lowell resident reported he was hunting on a friend’s property in Lowell when a hunter on a neighboring property intentionally pointed a weapon at him.

On 13 Sep 09 Deputy Sheriff Carr responded to a domestic dispute involving Margie Smithberger, age 53, 106 Oak Grove Lane, Marietta, and her daughter Melissa Sterling, age 24. Stemming from Ms. Sterling’s desire to have a male spend the night in her room, both women were combative toward each other. During the fray Ms. Suffered scratch marks to her back and neck and Ms. Smithberger received a black eye. Citing equal involvement of both parties, Deputy Carr arrested Ms. Smithberger and Ms. Sterling both for domestic violence and transported them to the Washington County Jail.

On 13 Sep 09 Lt. Wilson responded to the intersection of Seventh and Greene streets to assist the Ohio State Highway Patrol during a traffic stop. A passenger in a vehicle whose driver was being arrested for OVI, James D. Johnson, age 42, 200 Colegate Drive, Marietta, was yelling at the Trooper and would not obey orders to stop interfering with the arrest. Appearing intoxicated, Mr. Johnson quickly pulled away from Lt. Wilson when he was informed he was under arrest and only complied when Lt. Wilson utilized his Taser on him. Consequently, Lt. Wilson charged Mr. Johnson with resisting arrest. Johnson was transported to the Washington County Jail by the Highway Patrol and also charged by the Trooper with obstructing official business.

On 13 Sep 09 Jamie Lupardus, age 28, 60 Silver Globe Road, Marietta, reported her live-in boyfriend Bill Ball, age 35, assaulted her and her friend. Ms. Lupardus said Mr. Ball had been drinking all night, had possibly taken a prescription painkiller and was highly agitated following Ohio State’s loss against USC. Asked to stop complaining about the football game, Mr. Ball grabbed his pregnant girlfriend’s left cheek and pushed her to the floor. Ms. Lupardus left the home and returned later with a friend, Rachel Paulisin, age 26, 4427 12th Avenue, Parkersburg, at which time Ms. Lupardus told Mr. Ball to sleep on a couch. Infuriated, Mr. Ball struck Ms. Lupardus in the head with a Maglite and kicked her down a flight of stairs. Mr. Ball then picked up a three foot wooden board and chased Ms. Paulisin and Ms. Paulisin’s seven year old daughter out of the residence. Based on his investigation Deputy Sheriff Carr arrested Mr. Ball for a felony charge of domestic violence and a misdemeanor charge of assault and transported him to the Washington County Jail.
