A rural Findlay man accused of attacking a sheriff’s deputy has been indicted on a felony assault charge. The Courier reports the grand jury indicted 52-year-old Dennis Craft Sr. Tuesday. Craft is accused of throwing a punch at a deputy who was administering a breathalyzer test to a juvenile.
The incident happened August 30 at an abandoned building off of U.S. 224. Deputy Matthew Brunswick investigated a car parked near the building. That led to three juveniles being investigated for underage consumption. Craft allegedly arrived on the scene during that investigation and took a swing at the deputy. The attack apparently knocked the breathalyzer kit into Brunswick’s eye.
Underage consumption charges are pending against the juveniles.
