Steubenville Police

Driver fled: A driver was cited along with the owner of the vehicle she was driving after a two car accident Friday at Sixth and Adams streets. Quarnette D. Gee, 23, 468 S. Fifth St., Steubenville, was cited for no operator’s license, failure to yield, stop sign violation and hit-skip, while her boyfriend, Nathaniel J. Coverdale, 25, also of 468 S. Fifth St., was cited for wrongful entrustment. Gee allegedly pulled into the intersection in a white Infinity sedan and broadsided another vehicle, then fled the scene, police said. Witnesses had said her sedan had heavy front end damage and was dragging its front bumper. Officers located the sedan in the 400 block of S. Fourth Street and said they were able to match a piece of the front license plate cover missing from it to a piece that had attached itself to the other vehicle. Coverdale told officers Gee was behind the wheel, and was advised she could either “come and be issued her citation or (be arrested) for leaving the scene of an accident” when the accident report was finished. They said Gee emerged from her apartment and told them she had stopped at the intersection but didn’t see the other vehicle approaching and pulled out. She told police she didn’t have a license “and became scared so she fled back to her residence,” they said. Police said Coverdale admitted he knew she didn’t have a license and said it “won’t happen again,” but was cited for wrongful entrustment. Police said he also told them “he did not have insurance of any kind on his vehicle.”The other driver complained of pain to the left side of his face and said he could not hear out of his left ear, but declined to go to the hospital by ambulance. His driver side airbag was deployed.

Towed: A man in the 3200 block of Sunset Boulevard reported seeing a vehicle drive through his yard, damaging a curb and retaining wall and then going through a neighbor’s yard, striking a power pole and breaking a guide-wire, before fleeing the scene, Saturday. Evidence collected at the scene verified the car in question was maroon colored, and police followed a trail of antifreeze from the scene to the 100 block of Wilma Avenue where they located a maroon Ford Fusion with heavy front-end damage and some rear damage. A piece of the front bumper that was recovered at the scene was matched to the Fusion, and the vehicle was towed was from the scene.

Booked: Daveisha F. Brown, 31, 736 Rosswell Ave., Steubenville, assault, Friday. Police had been called to the Rosswell Avenue location to assist a female and a friend of hers in recovering her possesions from the residence. As she entered the residence, the officer escorting her heard an argument erupt and saw the woman being attacked. After separating the parties, the woman retrieved her belongings and advised she wanted to pursue charges. The resident said the woman had made a sarcastic comment so she had responded in kind, then shoved her.

Don’t answer: A woman in the 400 block of South Fifth Street who had been arguing with her husband was upset when he took their child for a walk without telling her where they were going, Friday. She said she texted and called him several times to find out where he was but he ignored her, so when he got back the arguing continued.

Blame the messenger: A woman called a clerk in the 100 block of South Fifth Street and said she’d lost her debit card, and when the clerk couldn’t find it went ballistic, yelling obscenities over the phone and threatening to assault the clerk, Friday.

Pushy: A Ridge Avenue resident said another woman was threatening her because she refused to come pick up her children to babysit immediately, Saturday. She was advised to call if the woman approached her or her residence. Minutes later, the Ridge Avenue resident called back to report the woman was in front of her house. The woman on the sidewalk told police she was on public property so it was OK, but they told her they’d overheard her tell the Ridge Avenue woman she would beat her up in front of the police, which could be considered menacing. She advised she no longer wanted to talk with police and walked home.
