Driving under the influence

BAC more than twice legal limit: Police received a complaint Oct. 18 about a vehicle driving erratically on Interstate 480 East. Responding officers found the vehicle at 2:11 a.m. and stopped it. The driver, a 27-year-old Cleveland woman, had a recorded BAC of .209%, and was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, driving under suspension, reckless operation, stopping the vehicle in the roadway and lanes of travel. The report also stated that raw marijuana was found.

Man arrested on felony OVI: A 31-year-old Cleveland man was arrested and charged with several driving-related infractions, including felony OVI, after police pulled him over Oct. 18 following a traffic complaint. At 5:10 a.m., officers responded to a call about a flat-bed truck blocking the roadway on the Interstate 480 eastbound entrance ramp from Route 91. The officers found the man sleeping inside the vehicle. The man refused the sobriety field test and was arrested. He was taken to the police department and also refused the BAC test. Since he had four previous convictions, he was charged with an F4 count of OVI, as well as F3 tampering with evidence. He also was arrested and charged with stopping in the roadway and BAC refusal with prior conviction. The man was taken to the Cleveland Clinic for medical treatment, and later transported to the Summit County Jail and was held with no bond before a scheduled video arraignment on Oct. 21 with the Stow Municipal Court. The municipal court bound the case over to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas Oct. 29.

Refused tests at station: A 30-year-old Richmond Heights man was arrested and charged with multiple driving-related offenses Oct. 26. Officers reported seeing the man committing several traffic violations as he was driving at the 8000 block of Darrow Road at 2:26 a.m. He was pulled over and given field sobriety tests, on which he reportedly performed poorly. He was taken to the Twinsburg Police Department, where he refused all tests. Because he had two prior OVI convictions within the last 10 years, the man was charged with F3 tampering with evidence. He also was charged with OVI, OVI refusal, and marked lanes. He was taken to Solon Jail and held without bond pending a scheduled video arraignment Oct. 28. The case was bound over from the Stow Municipal Court to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas Nov. 4.


Pills reported stolen: An Altamont Drive woman told police Oct. 19 that several pill bottles were stolen from her vehicle some time between Oct. 16 and 19. Reported missing were an empty pill bottle, plus pill bottles containing Paroxetine, Clonazepam and Famotidine. An investigation is pending.

Two vehicles broken into: On Oct. 23, an officer responded to a Dutton Drive business on a report of two vehicles which had their windows broken. Purses were stolen from both vehicles. Both purses had credit cards; a total of $500 was also reported missing from the purses. An investigation is pending.

Domestic violence

Phone line went dead during call: A 36-year-old Darrow Park Drive man was arrested and charged with F4 domestic violence Oct. 22 after dispatch received a 911 call. The police reports states that in the initial call, which was received at 8:16 p.m., dispatch could hear a woman screaming, with commotion in the background, before the line went dead. The dispatch center tried calling the phone number back, but the call went to voicemail. However, an address was found from the name of the voicemail greeting.

A short time later, dispatch received another call from another number; the caller identified herself as the owner of the previous phone. The woman told dispatch that she was involved in a domestic violence incident with her husband, who fled in his vehicle. Officers found the man, and took him to Solon jail, where he was held without bond. The case was bound over from the Stow Municipal Court to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas Nov. 7. Police reported finding a Hi Point C9 MM Luger handgun, two handgun magazines with eight rounds of ammunition each, and a folding pocket knife.
