Drunken man arrested after threatening his father

A West Mansfield man was arrested on multiple charges after he allegedly threatened his father at their 152 East State Street residence Sunday morning around 7:30.

Ryan Leitch (pictured), 25, and his girlfriend came home intoxicated.

Leitch was reportedly playing loud music and throwing items around the house.

He threatened to hit his dad, Michael, 54, with a hammer after the father confronted him about the disturbance.

The father then contacted the Logan County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded and could hear noise coming from an upstairs bedroom.

After Leitch didn't open the door, the father called his cell phone.

Ryan came downstairs wearing Santa Claus pants.

After arguing with deputies, he was charged with disorderly conduct and menacing.

Leitch denied threatening his father with a hammer.

No one was injured.

The girlfriend was not charged.

Leitch was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
