600 block of Eastland Ave. SE, Aaron Pointer, 24, arrested and charged with felonious assault and disorderly conduct. Police said Pointer had been in a fight at a bar in Howland earlier that night and was taken to St. Joseph Hospital to get checked out. He got upset because he had to wait for a ride home because he was drunk, police said. According to a report, Pointer punched a Mercy Health officer who tried to stop him from leaving. Even after he was taken to the police station on the hospital’s campus, Pointer was belligerent, tried to slip out of his handcuffs and physically fought with officers, according to the report. Pointer pleaded not guilty to the charges (this arrest was made by Mercy Health police, not Warren City police).
