A local man who was upset about his wife not having enough gas was arrested on allegations he stabbed the woman in the hand and later struggled with a Huron County sheriff’s deputy Sunday.

At 10:32 p.m., dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call from a woman who accused her husband of cutting up her dashboard and cutting her hand. At the time she reported she didn’t need any medical attention, according to a deputy’s report.

Her husband, Matthew B. Reed, 37, of 44 W. Willard Ave., walked down Ohio 13, away from the Fitchville Mart, 1596 U.S. 250. Sgts. Steve Shupp and Sgt. Chuck Summers responded.

“Sgt. Summers stayed with the victim,” Capt. Ted Patrick said.

Shupp found Reed walking about 300 yards away from the gas station with a backpack. Patrick said the deputy turned on the lights of his cruiser and pulled behind Reed, who “looked at him and just kept walking.”

The deputy got out of his vehicle, identified himself and told Reed he needed to talk to him.

“He wouldn’t obey any of Sgt. Shupp’s orders to stop,” Patrick said.

Shupp then grabbed Reed’s clothing and reportedly told him again to stop. Reed pulled away from the deputy and the two struggled with each other on the ground, Patrick said.

Reed was charged with two counts of domestic violence and one charge each of resisting arrest and menacing.

After the incident, Shupp drove Reed to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with a reported head injury.

“Halfway through, he said, ‘I just want to go to jail.’ He refused further treatment,” Patrick said.

Once Reed was booked into the jail, Shupp took himself to the hospital with a thumb injury.

“Nothing was broken. It sounded like a sprain,” Patrick said.

Firelands Ambulance was dispatched to the gas station, where the wife was treated. Patrick said the woman refused to go to the hospital.

Reed had wanted to go to Mansfield, Patrick said, but he became upset because his wife “said she didn’t have enough gas to go to Mansfield.” The sheriff’s spokesman said Reed stabbed the dashboard twice and when he raised his arm in the air as if to stab his wife, she put her hand in the air to protect herself and was stabbed in the hand.

The suspect must post an $18,000 bond before being released from the Huron County Jail.

"After Mr. reed was escorted to the ground, he repeatedly banged his head into the ground, I held onto his head trying to keep mr. reed from injuring himself but the multiple strikes with the pavement ultimately resulted in a head injury and the suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment." Here ya go deputy Shupp, copy and paste for your report!!! Way to go bud.

You really like to instigate things don't you Nic? Shut up and go back to the other article if you'd like to argue about the stupid mistake that young man made that ended up costing him his life.

Nic Williams

I garuntee this incident wasn't just over gas...there was a reason he wanted to get to Mansfield so badly. My guess is it is drug related.

Nic Williams

There are and heroin is the most popular and deadly. If the drug doesnt get all these kids that are trying it the suicides that follow alot of these addictions will. Lost many a friend to heroin since school.

I doubt your very educated? And I form this opinion through simple observation an educated person tends to do research before forming his or her opinion while you on the other hand tend to just talk about what you know nothing about. Have you ever heard of propaganda mr williams?

Nic Williams

Your welcome to look me up and have an intelligent convesation in person. Im all for being educated on any situation the more you know the more you grow and all. Or as I said feel free to clue us all in all the real facts of the situation since you have all the insider knowledge and all.

Smcc Student

"The more you know the more you grow"
You're not growing anytime soon then.

like a flower in a monsoon baby like a flower in a monsoon

I do in fact have the inside story my name is Mr Reed I happen to be Matts very close cousin. However. I am unlike yourself pretty intelligent and do not disclose family matters with outsiders like your self who's opinions really do not matter. So you continue posting your comments about our society and you may obtain this false sense of superiority that you are wishing to receive. While the rest of us try to improve it

arnmcrmn

For such an self claiming intelligent person, you really have horrible grammar. Just a keen observation.

Nic Williams

Its all about the message my friend not the grammar. never was much for english class

mouse11

And this was not drug related he wanted to go see his sick father so as I said propaganda people

Hereswhatithink

From another cousin of his...he had been into it earlier with 2 other family members, and had also taken some pills, then alcohol on top of it. You are correct, he is a great person, until mixing pills and alcohol.

No reply mr williams I would love to here your reply

mouse11

The man would gladly give you the shirt off his back in the dead of winter if he thought you needed it more than he did!! So mr williams please remember don't judge a book bye its cover.

Nic Williams

See now all you have to do is put the facts out there to help sway people from the propaganda that they have heard. While I still do not condone his actions in the end jail isnt the answer for this situation. He needs actual help. He is still an adult mind you and needs to show more care in his actions as well. So I officially apoligize to you for jumping to conclusions it was off base. And hope this man gets the help he needs.

arnmcrmn

Sounds like this guy has some serious anger issues. Stabbing the dash board of the car because of a gas issue? Then resisting arrest? Yup just the type of stand up person I want to associate with.

Nic Williams

It doesnt change the fact that we are to quick to throw someone like this in jail rather than get them the help they need to prevent this from happening again

sassy_girl

How do you stab someone and struggle with the police officer and have bond set at only $18,000???
