Crime Briefs: Stop a drunk driver, get assaulted

An Ohio State student reported that she was assaulted when she tried to stop her intoxicated roommate from driving early Sunday morning.

According to reports, the 20-year-old student was at her 16th Avenue apartment when her roommate returned heavily intoxicated around 4 a.m. and wanted to drive to Hilliard to go to a friend’s house. When the student took away her keys to stop her from driving, the roommate elbowed her in the head and punched her twice in the face. Another woman who was there attempted to break up the fight, but the intoxicated woman threw her to the ground and banged her head on the floor.

As soon as the intoxicated woman left the apartment, her roommate threw the keys outside and locked the door before calling police. The two women who were assaulted say they didn’t want to document the incident. They were referred to the county prosecutor’s office to press charges.

Collateral damage

A 27-year-old woman told police that her back was injured Sunday morning when a bouncer at the Thirsty Scholar on Neil Avenue threw a man into her, knocking her backwards down the front steps.

Fight erupts at party

An unruly Summit Street party turned violent early Sunday morning when two neighbors asked the partygoers to clean up trash that had been thrown onto their yard.

Reports state that a 28-year-old man and his roommate went to the party to ask that the beer bottles and trash be cleaned up when a fight broke out with numerous guests at the party. Two men in particular became incredibly violent, the neighbors said, and punched both men repeatedly in the head and arms.

When police arrived, the party had broken up and the suspects had left. Police noted that the 28-year-old man had minor injuries to his face and his shirt was ripped, and his roommate had a bloody nose that was possibly broken and his face was swollen.

After police left the scene, the two neighbors called the police once again to report that they saw the suspects walking nearby. When officers detained the suspects, though, they turned out to be other men who had been at the party and who said they attempted to break up the fight.
