Jefferson County sheriff
Dispute: A man said his ex-girlfriend walked into his home uninvited, Wednesday. He told deputies his ex keeps coming back to get her belongings but never takes them all so she has a reason to come back even though they broke up in February. His sister said he heard the ex banging on her brother’s door and told her to leave the property, and claims she called 911 after the ex told two males waiting in her car to “get her” and then threatened to burn their house down with them in it. The ex-girlfriend claims the sister punched her in the face without provocation. Deputies said the ex had a small mark on her face but the sister’s hands weren’t swollen or red. The ex was advised to get a court order before she returns to the property.
Overstayed: The owner of a bar on state Route 213 told deputies a woman was causing problems and wouldn’t leave, Wednesday. He said the woman had been there with family until they got in an argument and left, and after they were gone, she started causing problems with other customers. When he told her to leave, he said she refused, insisting she hadn’t done anything wrong. The woman was advised she needed to leave when asked.
Injury: A Wintersville woman complained to deputies that her 7-year-old son injured his leg when he was knocked to the ground while playing football with a 9-year-old, Monday.
