Teen lodged for domestic violence
Camron M. Slagle, 19, of 13253 State Route 720, Lakeview, was charged with domestic violence early Friday morning related to a dispute at his residence.
Deputies were dispatched to the home about 1:30 a.m. to speak with his parents, who advised that their son had left the residence and had possibly been picked up by friends.
His parents said that Slagle were concerned about their son’s possible drug use, and said his father had confronted him about it that night and asked him to leave the home. However, the defendant allegedly grabbed his father by his neck and placed him in a chokehold. His mother tried to intervene at that time as well.
His father said he did not strike his son, but only tried to push him away during the altercation.
Deputies located Slagle at the Emil Davis Park in Lakeview. He told deputies that his father had pushed him down the hallway during the argument and had tried to hit him.
No marks or bruises were visible on either party, deputies said.
The defendant was placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail. He volunteered for a urine drug screen, which showed THC in his system.
