Deputies log 2 OVI arrests


Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office have logged two unrelated arrests this week relating to operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs:

• In the first incident about noon Tuesday, deputies received a report of a reckless vehicle driving eastbound on U.S. Route 33 near Russells Point. 

The vehicle was located a short time later at the U.S. Route 33 exit ramp at U.S. Route 68, and a traffic stop was initiated. 

The driver, Dwight J. Newman, 43, of 633 N. Main St., Bellefontaine, refused to take field sobriety tests or a blood alcohol content test. He was charged with OVI. 

• Jane E. Roach, 46, of 874 Crestview Drive, Bellefontaine, also was charged with OVI Wednesday evening following a hit-skip crash in the parking lot of Desperado’s Bar, 6857 Lima St., Huntsville. 

Deputies responded to the report of the hit-skip crash about 7:40 p.m. Witnesses reported that a woman left the bar and got into her vehicle. She then reportedly backed into another vehicle and left the scene. 

She was located a short time later in her vehicle, and a traffic stop was initiated. Ms. Roach was then placed under arrest. 

Injury crash reported by Riverside Schools 

Daniel A. Jaynes, 28, of Kenton, was transported by Riverside EMS to Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney for non-incapacitating injuries sustained in a crash Wednesday afternoon.
