A joy ride in a farmer's field led to an arrest Tuesday evening in Logan County. At approximately 6:00 Tuesday night eyewitnesses reported that a car was driving in a field in the area of 274 and Township Road 110.
The incident was reported to an auxiliary deputy of the Sheriff's Office. As he approached the field (in his personal vehicle) the car fled and went in to Rushsylvania and stopped in the parking lot of the Rushsylvania Church of Christ. Once again as the officer approached the car fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The car then stopped on State Route 274. The driver of the vehicle was Diamond Board of Bellefontaine. Board was charged with Driving Under Suspension, Reckless Operation, Criminal Trespassing, and Criminal Damaging.
Three passengers in the car also received citations. 15-year-old Brittany Kossell, 24-year-old Jamie Branscum and a 13-year-old were charged with criminal trespassing.
The owner of the field was notified and noted that Board did not have permission to be in the field. The farmer is doing a damage assessment.
Board was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
