A former Putnam County resident charged in an Ottawa drug case says he is not a U.S. citizen, and as such can’t be charged with a crime. The Putnam County Sentinel reports Logan Pothast, who now lives in Toledo, appeared in court recently in a case that accuses him of having drugs in the Ottawa-Glandorf High School parking lot. Pothast represented himself, and told Judge Randall Basinger he is an American National and that the court has no authority over him.
Basinger entered a not guilty plea on Pothast’s behalf. Pothast will now have an evaluation to see if he is competent to stand trial. Another pre-trial hearing is set for June 30.
Pothast told Basinger he planned to sue the county for $1,000 in silver dollars for each minute he was “unlawfully” detained.
