A Findlay man was arrested following a standoff with police Friday night. The Findlay Police Department reports officers were called to 516 1/2 South West Street just before 7:30 p.m. Friday. Investigators say a dispute between a man and a woman in the home had been reported.
When officers knocked on the door, 39-year-old Scott Alesch allegedly said he had a gun and threatened to hurt a woman and three children inside. A crisis management team was called in, and Alesch left the home after a little more than an hour. He was initially treated for overdose symptoms, and was taken to the Hancock County Jail afterwards. The woman in the home refused treatment for minor injuries.
Alesch is facing domestic violence and endangering children charges.Read More →
