Assault charge filed in Ohio polling place argument



Published: Wed, November 7, 2012 @ 9:50 a.m.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man has been charged with tossing a cup of coffee in a man’s face during an argument over political signs outside a voting location.

The Summit County sheriff’s department says 58-year-old John Pegley of Coventry Township near Akron was arrested Tuesday on a misdemeanor assault charge.

He allegedly shouted obscenities from his car over political signs held outside a polling place. The other man said he was beyond the limit where politicking is banned.

The sheriff’s department says Pegley continued to shout and threw coffee in the man’s face. The victim didn’t require treatment at the scene.

Calls to a phone listing under Pegley’s name in the Akron area went unanswered today. No attorney is listed for him in court records.

Authorities didn’t identify the political signs.
