The Athens Police Department arrested an Ohio University student on Tuesday on East State Street for violating Ohio’s Stay at Home Order.
Andrew Wagner Ohliger, of Amherst, was charged with violating the Ohio director of health’s order after APD was called to 112 E. State St. for a nuisance party.
The stay-at-home order, which went into effect on March 23, is a mandatory, statewide order from Gov. Mike DeWine that restricts people from leaving their house for any non-essential business. It also says people should practice social distancing.
