On 1 Jun 13 Rebecca Rooney, age 31, 14350 State
Route 555, Cutler, reported she was involved in a brief altercation
with her husband. Upset that his wife allowed a vacuum salesman
in their home when he was not present, Mrs. Rooney’s husband
became very rude and combative with the salesman. When Mrs.
Rooney’s husband began to approach the salesman, Mrs.
Rooney intervened, fearing her husband may attack him. At that
point, Mrs. Rooney’s husband struck her in the face, grabbed
her by the arms and forced her outside the front door. Though
she was informed her husband could be charged with domestic
violence, Mrs. Rooney was adamant that he not be arrested and
declined to pursue charges against him.

in violation of a protection order she has against him. Ms.
Morrison said her husband was intoxicated and threatened her.

Ford pickup truck and led law enforcement in Ohio and West Virginia
on a lengthy chase. Mr. Morrison was apprehended after the Wood

Washington Road. Mr. Morrison faces felony charges of violating
the terms of a protection order, automobile theft and failure
