Ryan W. Leitch, 25, of 152 E. State St., West Mansfield, was charged with menacing and disorderly conduct following an incident Sunday morning at his residence.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a report from his father, Michael R. Leitch, of the same address, about 7:30 a.m.
The elder Mr. Leitch said his son and his girlfriend arrived home that morning intoxicated and that his son had been throwing items around the house and blaring music on the radio.
When the father asked his son to stop, the younger reportedly Leitch continued to play the loud music and threatened that he would hit his father with a hammer.
When deputies arrived at the home, the father had to call his son on his cell phone to get him to come downstairs. Ryan reportedly was wearing Santa Claus pants when he came downstairs to talk with deputies.
He argued with deputies and then was placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail.
Ryan Leitch is the home's owner, according to Logan County Auditor records.
