By John Hamilton -

WILMINGTON — The following information comes from incident reports provided by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office. All those arrested are presumed innocent until possibly found guilty in court.

The sheriff’s office recently processed these reports:

• Deputies arrested a 42-year-old Maineville male for alleged domestic violence and violating a protection order after responding to a domestic disturbance at the 1-99 block of ODNR Road in Wilmington at 12:59 a.m. on July 22.

According to the report: The suspect and the victim — a 41-year-old Florence, Kentucky female — were at the campground. The couple were attempting to rekindle their relationship after she was released from the hospital after an incident last December in which the suspect had assaulted her and “burned down her car.”

She told deputies the two of them lived in a hotel in Sharonville. At the campsite, the suspect began drinking heavily and acted disorderly. The victim stated he berated her, dumped her belongings out to try to get her prescription medication, took her phone while she was “Googling for a safe place,” threatened to strand her, and then started running around the campsite naked. After she told him she was going to call the police, he tackled her and “shoved his hands down her throat.” She reported that he threatened to kill her. She screamed for someone to call 911 and when she tried to escape again, she was tackled again and was choked. After that the suspect calmed down, cried, and tried to hug and kiss the victim. She tried to calm him down further and promised not to run but the suspect began running around again, falling into a grill. The victim began yelling for help and eventually hid in another camper’s tent. Other campers confronted the suspect; one of them was punched and bitten by the suspect, according to the report.

When deputies arrived two subjects were holding the suspect down. The suspect acted disorderly in the squad car and at one point said he was “going to beat the brakes off of the deputies.” Clinton County Jail staff were advised to take the suspect to Clinton Memorial Hospital. Just as they were pulling out of the Sheriff’s Office the suspect called the deputy a crass name and stated: “I’m going to (expletive) in your car.” He did and smeared his feces in the vehicle. While at the hospital, the suspect refused to be cleaned by the staff or even answer basic questions. If he did he would respond with crude statements toward the officers, the medical staff, and their families. While laying in a hospital bed, the suspect feel out of it and injured his right eye. He was eventually released back to the deputies stating he was fit for incarceration. The report indicates there was protection order in place between the two.
