Man takes offense to clerk’s laugh



Damion M. Pernell, 20, of 724 W. Williams Ave., was charged with aggravate menacing and underage consumption after he allegedly threatened to kill a clerk at Speedway, 329 S. Main St., around 1:35 a.m. today.

He told Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department he felt the clerk was laughing at him and disrespecting him.

The clerk told police she was outside on break talking with a friend when a car pulled up and parked with the suspect remaining in the passenger seat. He soon began yelling at her for “looking” at him and threatened to kill her and whoever she was sending a text to.

She retreated to the store and called police.

He was arrested and lodged in the Logan County Jail.
