Bellefontaine Man Arrested for OVI & Aggravated Menacing


Officers from the Bellefontaine Police Department observed a vehicle traveling on South Main Street without headlights on Monday night around 9:20.

The vehicle was making sudden, jerking steering corrections.

A traffic stop was initiated on South Madriver Street.

Marcus Cobb, 41, was identified. Officers observed his eyes to be bloodshot and glossy, along with other signs of impairment.

Cobb yelled at the officer and threatened him. He resisted arrest.

He was eventually placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail.

At the jail, as corrections officers asked if he had anything illegal on him, Cobb admitted he had smoked a blunt and drinks.

He became aggressive towards the officers and was unable to follow the simple directions that were given.

Cobb made aggressive gestures. He was placed in the restraint chair, and he kept becoming verbally aggressive to the police.

He refused all field sobriety tests.

Cobb was lodged for OVI, OVI (refusal with prior conviction), failure to reinstate, use of headlight beams, obstructing official business, resisting arrest, aggravated menacing, and possession of marijuana.
