Police say a reported suicide attempt led to an arrest with felony charges on Tuesday.
It all began according to police, when 38 yea rold Duane Perez of Pleasant Street in Montpelier, threatened to swallow a whole bottle of unidentified medications.
Officers showed up, and that’s when Perez began kicking and throwing punches, causing minor injuries to one officer. He was finally taken into custody, treated at Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers-Montpelier, then taken to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio on charges of disorderly conduct, intoxication, and felony assault on a police officer.
Perez was in Bryan Municipal Court yesterday, when he plead not guilty to disorderly conduct. His preliminary hearing for the other charges hasn’t been scheduled yet.
As of now, Perez is a free man. He was released on his own recognizance, but warned that he is not to have any contact with police.
