4 people arrested for violating Ohio’s stay-at-home order

The Athens Police Department arrested four people over the weekend for violating Ohio’s stay-at-home order.

Officers responded to Mill Street on Friday for a nuisance party. Matthew Goepffert, of Rocky River, and Michael Townsley, of Cincinnati, were charged with violating the order.

APD responded to another house on Mill Street for a nuisance and charged Alexa Sicilian with violating the stay-at-home order.

Officers responded to a house on North High Street for a nuisance party. David Pavlik, of Strongsville, was charged with violating the stay-at-home order. 

There have been five people in Athens arrested for violating the order. APD charged a man last Tuesday with violating the stay-at-home order. 

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 has been extended to May 1 and says people should practice social distancing.

Athens County has had three cases of the coronavirus and one death, which was confirmed Monday, according to a previous Post report.
