Front Street Man Charged with Domestic Violence, Child Endangerement
Posted on: 03/25/2013
By  Mike Cullums
Marietta Police arrested 25-year-old Jonathan James Hall of 615 Front Street on Saturday for domestic violence, obstructing official business, child endangerment and resisting arrest after an incident involving his live-in girlfriend. Captain Jeff Waite says police responded to a report of domestic violence. When they entered the home and ordered Hall to surrender, he leaped out a window and ran a short distance before being caught. Waite says the child endangerment charge was filed because Hall chased his girlfriend out of the house and followed her, thus leaving a baby unattended.
Crystal Seevers, 29, of 162 Dawes Circle was arrested for operating a vehicle while under the influence, driving under a suspended license and failure to control after striking a parked car in the 900 block of Washington Street.
Matthew Scott Johnson, 34, of Tressel Hill Road in Warren Township was arrested for OVI and failure to control after striking a parked car in the 800 block of Front Street. Johnson’s car flipped over in the crash and he fled the scene on foot but was located by officers a short time later. His blood-alcohol level tested more than double the legal limit.

Thanks to a nationwide campaign, the Marietta Police Department’s K-9’s will be able to work more safely. Captain Jeff Waite says department K-9s Diego and Ajax were both recently awarded Gemini bullet and stab resistant vests through a Groupon.com campaign that ran March 13-20.  The campaign was hosted by the organization Vested Interest in K-9’s Incorporated.
The vests will be made to order by Armor Express in Michigan, and will take about 10 to 14 weeks to be completed and shipped. Vested Interest in K-9’s is a non-profit organization working to provide bullet and stab protective vests for law enforcement K-9’s throughout the United States.
Waite says the Police Department is grateful to Sandy Marcal, Chris Bradley, and Vested Interest in K-9’s for their efforts to protect the city's "four-legged police officers."
