AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – State Representative Bob Young of Green has been indicted on two misdemeanor charges of assault and domestic violence.
It means he no longer faces a felony ‘disrupting public service’ charge for allegedly throwing a 9-1-1 caller’s phone into a swimming pool.
It means Young no longer faces the possibility of losing his seat in the House.
Young gave a statement to the Beacon Journal, saying his behavior was “inappropriate”, but “not criminal”.
He says he “acted poorly”.
He also says he has entered a counseling program.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office report indicates he slapped a woman and charged a man two weeks ago in Green.
Both victims were family members.
