MASON — A Dallas semi truck driver arrested last week at King’s Island for having a loaded gun in his tractor trailer, was also wearing eyeglasses equipped with a video camera, according to the Mason City prosecutor’s office.
Prosecutor’s said on July 3, children reported Rodney Grisham, 37, acting suspicious in the area of the Diamondback roller coaster.
Police responded to the park and found the loaded gun in Grisham’s truck in the parking lot. Grisham is not supposed to have a firearm because of a previous criminal conviction. Police also discovered non-licensed prescription drugs in Grisham’s truck. He was arrested and charged with having weapons under disability and drug abuse.
In court Monday, a judge ordered Grisham’s bond to be kept at $200,000 cash on the charges. The judge also ordered Grisham to stay out of amusement parks.

MASON — A Mason High School student was arrested Thursday evening after an investigation tied him to a threat about a shooting at the school, district officials said.
In a notice posted on Mason Schools’ website — and sent to school parents in the Warren County district — Mason officials said the district worked with Mason Police in their investigation of a threat posted in a restroom of the school.
And a Mason Middle School student is under investigation for his threat made on a school bus, said officials.
The student allegedly stood up on the bus today (Thursday) and said he was going to shoot up the school on Friday, according to communications from the district.
“We will have a robust law enforcement presence at all of our schools on Friday, and will have other measures in place that we aren’t sharing publicly. We always support a parent’s decision to do what is in your best judgment when it comes to your child’s safety — and an absence will be counted as excused,” an email to parents from the district said.
“We understand how disturbing threats are for your family. They are for our Mason City Schools staff, too. We are all working hard to share the message that making a threat is very serious and has enormous consequences for the person who does so, and a community,” said officials.

— A Springfield man was indicted on two murder charges this week in connection with the shooting that killed a woman who was 30 weeks pregnant.
Travis Hypes, 24, was indicted in Clark County Common Pleas Court on the murder charges and felonious assault, according to the prosecutor’s office. He is accused of shooting Lindsey Marsh, who was carrying their baby, on April 5 at a home on McCreight Avenue.
The baby was successfully delivered by c-section before Marsh died, a police affidavit said. Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson said the baby is still fine.
The affidavit says Hypes told police that he and Marsh got into an argument and began pushing each other. Hypes told authorities he brandished the gun but didn’t mean to use it, the affidavit said.
The gun allegedly went off during the pushing match, according to what Hypes told police in the affidavit.
But Marsh’s family doesn’t believe that’s what took place. They told the Springfield News-Sun that Marsh was protective of the baby and wouldn’t willingly get involved in a physical altercation.
