Bond set after scuffle


Bond of $7,500 was set Friday in Warren Municipal Court and a not-guilty plea was entered for Daquan R. Owens, 18, of Oak Street Southwest to felony assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in a Tuesday scuffle with deputies in the Trumbull County Courthouse.

Owens, who remains in the Trumbull County jail, was escorted from the courtroom of Judge Andrew Logan of common pleas court around 9 a.m. for appearing to be sleeping in the courtroom while waiting for his case to be called.

Owens argued with deputies when he was removed and continued to argue in the hallway and refused to cooperate when deputies later attempted to take him into custody.

Surveillance video from the courthouse shows deputies taking him to the floor and taking him into custody after a lengthy struggle involving four and then six deputies.
