Lowellville officer returns to duty
A Lowellville police sergeant who was placed on paid administrative leave is now back on the job.
Sgt. Jason Goist was placed on administrative leave after being served with a protection order Sept. 24. The order was filed by his wife, Danielle, after a domestic dispute at their Struthers home Sept. 18.
Lowellville Mayor Jim Iudiciani said he had to put Goist on leave because he was not allowed to carry a gun while the protection order was in effect.
Goist also filed for a protection order against his wife Sept. 25.
At a hearing Monday in Mahoning County Domestic Relations Court, both orders were dismissed.
No criminal charges were ever filed in the case.
