On July 13, Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies were sent to a home in the 200 block of Weinland Avenue on a report of a fight. Hughes and another man began knocking on the door and he allegedly pulled one of the victims from the home and began fighting with him, according to the report. Another man allegedly began fighting another victim, throwing her to the ground and stealing her cell phone.

Moments later, Hughes and the other man walked down the sidewalk with a dog and allegedly ordered the dog to “sic him” several times, the report said. The dog began to bite the victim, but he was able to get the dog away from him. Another man then came out of the home and began shooting at the dog. Hughes, the other suspect and the dog left the scene, it said. Deputies found a trail a blood where the dog was apparently hit, but lost the trail of blood soon after locating it, the report said.

Hughes is also accused of punching another man during the fight, causing his nose to bleed. He was arrested by deputies at about 8:15 p.m. Monday, jail records said.

Hughes was also charged with fleeing and a eluding a police officer and resisting arrest after he wouldn’t stop while being pulled over by deputies. He later ran from them and was tased before he was taken into custody.

Multiple vehicles hit by rocks on WB U.S. 35 in Dayton

Nearly 20 motorists pulled over Saturday night in Dayton after their vehicles were struck by rocks while they were traveling west on U.S. 35.

Dayton police arrested one male juvenile at the scene, who admitted throwing rocks according to a Dayton police report. The boy was taken to the Juvenile Justice Center, where he was booked on several counts of vandalism. He said he had an accomplice, another male juvenile, but it was not clear whether that youth was arrested as well.

Thomas Acco of Jefferson Twp. and his girlfriend had just dropped off their children and were headed home when a rock came through the front of the windshield.

“I was in shock that someone would play with someone’s life like this,” he said.

“Glass just flew everywhere. We had a little swerve contest with the car in front of us — their windshield got hit also. We just pulled to the side and it was like 15, 20 cars lined up to the side all with damage.”

Dayton police Lt. Chris Malson said there are no suspects, but plenty of victims.

“We got a report of multiple cars, approximately 18 of them, that were hit with rocks as they were driving westbound on U.S. 35 near Woodman (Drive),” he said. “All the calls came within about five minutes of each other.

The Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center said they received starting at 10 p.m. The last one received was at 10:29 p.m.

One of the victims was Susan Myers of Lima who was headed back home with her husband, riding in the front passenger seat.

“We heard a loud bang and looked up and saw the damage on the windshield,” she said. “We immediately pulled over and noticed that there were several cars ahead of us also pulled over with their hazard lights on.”

There are no reports of injuries, but Myers said they were shaken and now have to deal with broken glass inside the car and their insurance company.

Tony Gerardi of Xenia said he was driving home from visiting friends in Dayton when his car was struck.

“I hope police get them. I’m safe, thank God,” said Gerardi, “I don’t know why someone would do something like that.”

Earlier Saturday, around 4:45 p.m., another two motorists, one from Illinois and one from Dayton, reported their windshields were struck by rocks. At least one of the windshields shattered just when they went under a bridge. They told police the rocks appeared to come from the north side of the highway but were not able to see the culprits. Police officers found a pile of rocks laying on the side of the highway before the South Smithville Road exit, according to a Dayton police report.

Troopers chased down and boxed in a fleeing ATV with two riders illegally driving on the interstate.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol posted a video of the incident Friday on its Facebook page.

The video shows the ATV bumping one cruiser before finally stopping when it backed into another cruiser.

Once the ATV stopped, troopers said the driver fled but the passenger surrendered. 

The driver was apprehended a short time later and was charged with fleeing and eluding and for not having an operator’s license, the highway patrol said.

The three-mile pursuit started May 21 on Interstate 277 and ended when the ATV ran into the back of a cruiser on Interstate 76, according to reports.
