BOARDMAN

A township man appeared in court Tuesday for arraignment on multiple charges after police said he shot at his ex-girlfriend while he was intoxicated.

Anthony Magrini, 47, of Yarmouth Lane, is charged with felonious assault, domestic violence, possessing drug paraphernalia and operating a vehicle impaired.

According to a police report, the victim, who is Magrini’s ex-girlfriend, called police about 10 p.m. Sunday and said Magrini had just shot at her near a fast-food restaurant on Applewood Boulevard.

The victim was at her boyfriend’s residence on Appleridge Circle, where she saw Magrini sitting in a truck in the driveway, according to the report.

The victim left the apartment complex with her boyfriend, at which point she said Magrini followed them.

The victim then stopped the car near the intersection of Applewood and Appleridge and got out to confront Magrini.

She said he then got out of the truck, pointed a handgun at her and fired it. The bullet missed the victim and ricocheted off the pavement. She told police he pointed the gun directly at her.

The victim and her boyfriend then fled the scene and called 911.

Township police located Magrini as he was returning to his residence. Officers arrested Magrini for operating a vehicle while impaired after finding open containers of beer and a pipe containing suspected marijuana in his truck, and observing signs of intoxication.

Police also found a bullet in the truck, but did not find a gun.

Magrini told police he had been shooting while at his cabin all weekend.

He is free on bond pending another appearance Jan. 20 in Mahoning County Area Court.
