Woman accused of threatening to kill deputy

A rural Norwalk woman was Tasered and subsequently arrested after an incident on Greenwich-Milan Townline Road in Hartland Township.

Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Steve Mancuso was called to the scene about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday because a man was allegedly threatening suicide.

"Deputy Mancuso responded and was able to determine the individual was not threatening suicide with a knife or gun," Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.

Mancuso ran the man's information through the database and learned he was wanted on a Norwalk police warrant.

Charles Myers, 58, of 602 Greenwich-Milan Townline Road, was arrested on a warrant for felonious assault, police said.

"(Myers) was arrested and transported to Fisher-Titus for a mental health evaluation," Querin said.

Right after the arrest took place, a female was located in the roadway near the scene.

"The female was in the roadway with a knife and her actions were aggressive in nature," Querin said.

"She told Deputy Mancuso she was going to kill him and began to charge at him," he added.

By that time, several other deputies had also responded.

"Deputy Mancuso then deployed his Taser," Querin said. "The deployment was successful.

"Even after she was arrested, she was making threats and spitting at deputies," Querin said.

Querin said the woman, Blanche M. Myers, 54, of 602 Greenwich-Milan Townline Road, will be charged with felonious assault, a first-degree felony.

"We're fortunate Deputy Mancuso was equipped with a Taser and avoided possible serious injury," Querin said. "It was a good result to a potentially dangerous situation."

Blanche Myers was transported to Fisher-Titus and was to be booked into the county jail.

Police reported Charles Myers and Blanche Myers were married at one time, but whether they were divorced was unclear after the initial investigation.
