Be nice: A divorced couple gave conflicting accounts of a custody exchange, Thursday. The husband said after loading his child into his truck his ex blew up when he asked her where they would be meeting for the return and started yelling at him, then tried to grab the child by the arm and yank him out of the vehicle. He said he tried to pull her away because she was hurting the child so she dug her nails into his arm instead, then keyed his truck as he drove away. The woman told deputies she’d reached in to give the child a kiss when her ex-husband grabbed her and told her to get out, at which point she told him not to touch her and pushed him away. She said he hit her with the truck door, leaving a bump on her arm, though deputies noted she had no visible injuries. She blamed a bruise on the child’s arm on his rough play with his dog.
Booked: Riva Marie McIntyre, 30, 115 Ward Dr., Wintersville, domestic violence and possession of drugs, Thursday.

McIntyre allegedly had a small bag of heroin concealed on her when she arrived at the Jefferson County jail, they noted.

Persistent: A woman was pounding on her ex boyfriend’s door and refusing to leave his downtown apartment building, Thursday.

He said she’s threatened to slash his tires and destroy his vehicle and he just wants her gone, and building security advised he’s gone so far as to hide his car so she can’t find it and damage it. Police advised her not to return or she would be charged due to numerous incident reports.
