Blame It On The Alcohol -- Several Intoxicated Suspects Arrested Last Week In Westlake
Alcohol contributed to several incidents that ended in arrest last week, according to Westlake Police
Westlake Police officers arrested several suspects in separate incidents last week. Their charges ranged from assault to disorderly conduct.
According to Westlake Police, the one thing each incident had in common is that the suspects were intoxicated.
The incidents include:
- Two men from Springfield, OH -- one is 21 years old; the other, 32 -- were arrested in the early morning hours of February 15 at a motel on Sperry Drive.
Both men were intoxicated and had beaten up a 19-year-old Springfield man with whom they were traveling and working, according to police.
While being arrested, the younger suspect kicked the window out of a police cruiser.
He was charged with disorderly conduct, aggravated menacing -- he threatened to kill the victim, according to police -- assault and attempted vandalism.
The older of the two suspects was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
- An intoxicated 28-year-old Avon Lake man became noisy and difficuly to control at about 2 a.m. Feb. 10 while at a bar on Detroit Road.
He pushed another patron and challenged him to a fight, according to police. Then he refused to leave when asked.
Police arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct.
- Another intoxicated man -- this one is 35 and from North Olmsted -- at the same bar at the same time (but not involved in the previous incident) slurred a question at one of the officers and then tried to get into his minivan, police said.
Officers told him to stop but he said that he only had a few beers and was fine to drive. He was also arrested for disorderly conduct.
- Finally, two intoxicated Bay Village men, ages 39 and 47, were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for knocking over a sign and making vulgar remarks near a Vine Street parking garage on the evening of Feb. 13.
The younger suspect signed his citation and was released at the scene to the older man’s sober wife. The older suspect would not sign his and was taken to Westlake City Jail, police said.
