Charged: An officer checking on a car parked in a church parking lot with the driver’s side door open and hazard lights blinking discovered a male in the back seat “cleaning up,” Wednesday. Justin Nicholson, 32, 183 Meadow Road, Wintersville, was charged with two counts of possession of drugs after the deputy allegedly spotted a pill bottle with no label filled with pills, including alprazolam (Xanax) and another, with a label suggesting it contained Subutex but, instead, contained more Xanax. In all, deputies reported seizing 106 mg of Xanax, 40 mg of Adderall and 30 mg of OxyContin. Supplies for passing urine and saliva-based drug tests were also found in the car, they said.
Charged: Andre Rashaun Sims, 26, 3241 West St, Weirton, has been charged with domestic violence and aggravated burglary after he allegedly forced his way into his ex-girlfriend’s house in the 100 block of Elm Street, Steubenville, Monday. Deputies said Sims showed up at the woman’s rental, demanding his belongings. She told him she’d put them on the porch for him to retrieve later, but he started kicking her front door, then walked around the side of the house and pushed the air conditioning unit through the window so he could climb in. Once inside, she said he began “physically fighting” her, at which point she fled into the bathroom. She said she closed the door but he forced it open, knocking her into the tub and onto the floor, then grabbed her and shook her, telling her, “You made me do this.” Deputies said she had red marks on her neck and arm, and decorations and door molding were broken
Names: An Irondale woman who filed for divorce said her soon-to-be ex husband threw snow on her and called her disgusting names, Tuesday. She said she wanted to shovel snow from around her vehicle and he wouldn’t give her keys to the garage, so a friend brought her a shovel. While she was shoveling the snow, she said her estranged husband came out of the house they still share and began yelling at her and calling her degrading names, then started throwing snow on her vehicle and her, so she threw her shovel down and went in the house to call for help. She said he followed her in, yelling at her and screaming offensive terms the whole time. She said she and her kids are afraid to be under the same roof with him but he refuses to leave. The husband claimed he was shoveling snow when she started yelling at him for dumping it in the roadway and started shoveling it in his truck, sparking the argument, and told deputies she threw her shovel at his truck and scratched it.
Flip side: A woman whose windshield was shattered outside her ex’s home in Richmond Jan. 10 told deputies it was her ex who fired the weapon and broke it, not her. She told deputies he was standing on his porch, “flipping out on her” and walked up to her car and smashed the glass as she tried to leave. She said she had a video of him hitting her windshield. A mutual friend who was present told her to leave because “authorities are tired of coming there.” The man had claimed she’d hit a deer and cracked it herself, and claimed they’d struggled for control of an AR-15 she’d grabbed off his kitchen table. She said the man has a meth addiction.
