Ryan C. Marvel, 42, of 432 N. Main St., was arrested June 18 and lodged in jail on charges of menacing and domestic violence.
Around 7 p.m., officers were back at his residence on a reported domestic dispute for the second time in an hour. He was upset and yelling at officers and his girlfriend, Latosha Jefferson. She told officers she could calm Marvel down and that she was not afraid to be with him in the house.
Officers returned to their cruisers and began to pull away from the residence when Jefferson ran after them screaming and waving her arms frantically. She told them the suspect had threatened to “shoot up the house.” The eldest of three children standing on the porch said she too heard Marvel’s threats.
Marvel began yelling as officers took him into custody and passively resisted them as he was placed in a cruiser.
Jefferson initially said she would complete a statement but later declined. She also would not provide information regarding her daughter.

She was transported by a Bellefontaine squad to Mary Rutan Hospital for treatment of injuries and to check on a recurring medical condition that results in coughing fits. She told officers she had blacked out when a bout hit her while driving.
