Domestic dispute also leads to OVI charges



Charles A. Stevens, 31, of 7347 Township Road 269, Russells Point, was charged with domestic violence, disorderly conduct and driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs following an incident Saturday evening and early Sunday morning.

Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to his address shortly before midnight to speak with his mother, Rebecca Stevens, 59. She reported that she had picked up Mr. Stevens from an area bar that evening.

On the way home, he asked to drive her vehicle and she refused. Once at their residence, the defendant reportedly began destroying items at the home, and shoved his mother into a couch.

He then followed her outside, and neighbors said they observed him standing above her while she was on the ground. Mr. Stevens then left in his mother’s vehicle.

Deputies located the vehicle about 12:35 a.m. in the area of State Route 47 and Township Road 131 near West Mansfield and initiated a traffic stop. The defendant displayed signs of intoxication, and he was transported to the Logan County Jail.

He also was cited for driving under an OVI suspension, and has three prior OVI convictions since 2005.

Man lodged for assault involving airsoft gun

Aaron Osborne, 20, of 16098 N. State Route 235, Lot 42, Belle Center, was charged Sunday with assault relating to an incident with an airsoft gun that he allegedly shot at a 10-year-old.

Deputies responded to 129 Chase Ave., Russells Point, to speak with Robert Neeley, the father of the 10-year-old boy.

Mr. Neeley said Saturday evening, he had dropped off his son to stay with a 12-year-old friend at the residence where Mr. Osborne resides. Then about 11 p.m., Mr. Neeley’s son called and asked to be picked up because someone named “Aaron” had shot an airsoft gun at him.

The boy said the defendant had fired the airsoft gun at him several times. At first, he reportedly was only about 1 foot away from Mr. Osborne, and then he ran from the defendant, who continued to fire the airsoft gun. Deputies noted that the shots had broken the skin on the boy’s forearm and hand.

Deputies then spoke to the defendant at his residence, and he admitted to shooting the airsoft gun at the boy. He was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
