BLANCHESTER — A Blanchester woman faces charges after witnesses told police she got in a car and followed her husband, who was on foot, down the street trying to block his path and yelling at him — as their child rode his bike in the path of the car, according to Police Chief Scott Reinbolt.
At around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday Blanchester police were called to the 600 block of North Broadway Street on a report of a domestic dispute in the street, Reinbolt said. The responding officer, Ptl. Sarah Luken, found the participants in the dispute at 620 N. Broadway St., Reinbolt said, and Ptl. Luken spoke to those present at the home as well as nearby neighbors.
“According to witnesses, Megan Nichols of 620 N. Broadway St. got into an argument with her husband at their home,” said Reinbolt. “Her husband left the home on foot, and Nichols followed him in her car, yelling at him and trying to block his path with her car.
“The couple’s minor child followed along on a bicycle and was in the path of the moving car several times during the dispute, which prompted neighbors to phone police,” hesaid. “No one was injured in the incident and no threats of violence were made.
Reinbolt said Nichols, 31, was charged with disorderly conduct and endangering children. She will answer the charges in Clinton County Municipal Court.
