DAYTON — A former Dayton police officer is serving jail time after she threatened to shoot Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl.
Ginger Stutz, 54, was found guilty of an aggravated menacing charge earlier this month.
Court records show Stutz called her son Nov. 9 and told him “if I had a gun, I would shoot Rick in the (expletive) face.”
Stutz was arrested in Arizona after a warrant was issued for her arrest following the threat, jail records show.
According to court records, Stutz also had left a voicemail for Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl in November 2017 that was used as evidence in the case.
Biehl declined comment on the case when reached Wednesday.
Stutz was ordered to serve 180 days in jail. However, she was given credit for 34 days she had served following her arrest.
She also was ordered not to have any contact with Biehl, to include phone, text, email, social media or third-parties, court records show.
Stutz also must have a mental health assessment and the recommended treatment.
She will be on electronic home monitoring for 60 days after her jail sentence is finished and will be on probation for two years.
