An Ashland County man failed to show up for his final pretrial hearing Friday morning.

Jack D. Napier, 50, of Sullivan, is charged with one count of passing bad checks, which is punishable by six to 12 months behind bars and a maximum fine of $2,500.

"He wrote a bad check to take possession of a vehicle," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway issued a warrant for Napier's arrest and ruled he will be held without bond once he's taken into custody. Napier's trial is scheduled for Tuesday.

The defendant was released Aug. 18 from the Huron County Jail based on an undisclosed medical condition, shortly after being transported there.

Seen it All

This reminds me of a joke from a comedian in the 80's (can't recall who it was). A man gets a knock on his door, he answers it and it is the repo guy. The repo guy tells him he's taking the car, unless he catches up on his pmts. He continues, we take cash, money order, or check. The guy says, a check? Why didn't you say so! Heck, I'll just pay the whole thing off!
