Drowning victim ID’d
An Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman has released the identity of a man who drowned in Mosquito Lake.
The victim, Antonio Shaun Randall of Youngstown, 27, swam past the 41/2 feet-deep buoys in the water and drowned, the spokesman said.
The incident happened around 6:15 p.m. Sunday near the beach area.
Bond set in dragging
Bond was set at $100,000 for a man accused of dragging an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper a mile and a half late Thursday.
Visiting Judge David Fuhry set the bond Monday in municipal court for Jamel Patton, 22, of Campbell on charges of felonious assault, failure to comply and resisting arrest.
Reports said the trooper pulled Patton over on Kirk Road in Austintown for driving with no headlights. Patton drove away at speeds of up to 60 mph before the trooper managed to let go. He was treated for minor injuries. Patton surrendered to authorites the next day.
Closed for repairs
Phelps Street between Boardman and Front streets downtown will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice for sewer repairs.
