Blotter: Police called about cable truck; woman gets calls about Craigslist ad

Resident Assistants found an 18-year-old student Saturday passed out in a chair in Mackinnon Hall.

The Ohio University Police Department found him with bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. He also smelled like alcohol and was unsteady on his feet.

He was issued a summons for underage consumption.

Oh, deer!

The Athens County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of deer on the road Sept. 26.

Deputies removed the deer from the roadway near Movies 10.

That’s a foul

Deputies responded to a fight Sept. 26 between two juvenile men and a staff member at Basset House.

Deputies found out that one of the men had assaulted the other for stepping on his foot during a basketball game. The staff member who witnessed it tried to separate the two.

Who did it?

Deputies were dispatched to Jacksonville park Monday to respond to a call about children throwing rocks at parked cars.

Deputies found two groups of children at the park, but they both denied the accusations. No damage was seen on any of the vehicles either.

Suspicious bike

Deputies were dispatched to Millfield Road Friday for a suspicious man on a bicycle, asking if anyone had seen a woman.

Deputies patrolled the area and did not contact the man.

That isn’t me

Deputies took a phone report of harassment Friday involving a Craigslist advertisement with the caller’s phone number attached.

She said someone added her phone number to a “highly inappropriate ad” and she has been called about the ad.

Bad reception

Deputies were dispatched Friday to a Millfield residence for a man who kept calling 911 about his phone issues.

Deputies arrived on scene and the phone seemed to be working. He was told to stop calling 911 unless it is an emergency.

Why do you need firewood?

Deputies were called to Gun Club Road Friday for a trespassers report of people stealing lumber.

Deputies spoke with neighbors who said they had not seen any vehicles going to or leaving the property and the call was unfounded.

Found footage

Deputies responded to Millfield Friday for a property damage report of a trail camera.

All that was left of the camera, which was attached to a tree, was the battery casing.

That’s mine?

Deputies responded to Petit Road in Albany Friday for a report of a homeowner finding a firearm in her garage, but she did not know who it belonged to.

Deputies found the firearm and determined that it was an old BB gun that does belongs to her.

Quick getaway

Deputies responded to a report in Coolville Sunday about a verbal dispute.

When deputies arrived to speak with the people, one of them who had left drove back to the property. When he saw the deputies, he drove in the opposite direction. Deputies pursued the man, but were not able to find him. 

The woman told deputies that there had not been a dispute, but the man was yelling at a dog.

Cutting the cord

Deputies responded to Hudnell Road Sunday for a report of a suspicious vehicle.

The caller said she saw a Spectrum Cable truck driving past her residence. She said it seemed off for Spectrum to be working this late.

Deputies contacted Spectrum who said the company was working on a service line.
