Man accused of assaulting Boardman cop

Published: Fri, July 16, 2010 @ 11:28 p.m.


An Aravesta Avenue man was in the Mahoning County jail accused of assaulting a township police officer.

David D. Bell, 31, was charged with assault on a

police officer, a felony, and two misdemeanor counts of

obstructing official business and resisting arrest.

Police were called about 6:15 p.m. Thursday on a report

of a man, later identified as Bell, breaking a window at Ohio Carpet, Market Street.

A police officer saw a man matching Bell’s description knock on a door on Aravesta and yelled for him to stop, but Bell ran into the house.

Police surrounded the house, and Bell exited the house in a “threatening manner,” the report said. Two police officers blocked him when he ignored commands to stop. When the officers tried to restrain him, Bell pushed and then punched one of them in the mouth, police said.

So according to "censoredship", just because county jail said he's a black person with an address north of 224, he has a drug problem, and doesn't work? GTFOH!!!

While this turd may be a criminal, you don't know this guy, nor can you assume that all black people with an address north of 224 has a drug problem and are perpetual non-workers.

Come on man...Get that racist crap out of here!

31 years old, think it's about time this cockroach grows up. Dude needs to get a life and quit stealing. And then has to fight when getting arrested for it. Pitiful fool. Useless to society.

David D. Bell is a free spirit who will not be burdened down by employment . To force him to do so would be a detriment to the subculture . The Southside is very rich in culture and David is a fine upstanding member of that culture .

@ lombardo- Why not do something more constructive than a blog on north Boardman? Why not a blog on the positive things of living wherever you live (probably not north Boardman)? Do you honestly think your blog is going to make a change?

@censoredship- So all of the residents north of 224 are sketchy? Why don't you partner with lombardo and do something constructive not for yourself, but for your community (again probably not north Boardman)?

Your comments are are just empty, unconstructive rhetoric that won't change Boardman.

If you want to see change, don't just shout out about what's wrong. Bring a realistic solution.

David may have just been shopping for carpet and had no criminal intent . Shopping habits differ amongst different cultures . Diversity is good as we are told and we should be more tolerant toward others .

Everyone is worried about the felon, but what about the cop? He got punched in the face for doing his job! Hope he is ok and didn't loose any teeth. I hope the cops roughed him up real good when they attempted ot cuff him. He deserves far more than that.

Huh? What incidents are those? If the cops are wrong there wrong, if they didn't do nothing but protect society then there innocent. Not exactly rocket science. Not sure what your referring to.

What happened to the uptown is that businesses started to fail, then real estate became cheap. Then Gary Crim moved his tenants in!

Stan read your comments about the culture that is what I mean.
Life obviously you must be another who feels what I stated or you wouldnt have responded. My point is cops are humans and are just as corrupt as other citizens. Not all but some are.

The subculture in our area know that they are protected by the legal system . To them punching a cop is cool but their contusions from resisting arrest are grounds for a lawsuit . Of course we don't want them getting hurt but telling them to please put their hands behind their backs for the cuffs just doesn't work . YEP, THE CULTURE IS PROTECTED !
