At noon on Monday, a man and
woman say they were travelling between the 600 and 300 blocks of Greene Street, past the
Williamstown Bridge ramp, when an SUV pulled up on the driver’s side and one of
its occupants fired a marshmallow gun at them. The SUV then pulled along the
right side of their car and another marshmallow was fired - this one hitting the
female passenger in the corner of her eye.
The incident remains under
investigation. If you saw such an incident along Greene Street at noon Monday, please
call the police department at (740) 376-2007.

Last weekend an officer was dispatched to check on
the welfare of a young woman who was reported to be living in a tent under the
Putnam Bridge. Ashana Long, 20, who gave a Beverly address, was arrested and
taken to jail on a warrant for contempt from Marietta Municipal Court.
On Saturday evening, officers responded to a report of a
disturbance at the Frontier Shopping Center. They arrested James O’Brien, 35, of

in a parked vehicle. O'Brien allegedly slapped her in the face with an open hand. He
was taken to jail.
