Passenger in pursuit threatens to command dog to attack trooper

Two men face numerous charges.

Sgt. Jason Demuth had his hands full after two occupants in a fleeing vehicle wouldn't comply with his orders.

The driver, Ronald A. Bischoff, 53, of 5015 Sherman Norwich Road, Willard, and his passenger, Rady D. Davis, 55, of 2270 Ohio 99, Willard, are out on bond. They were released from the Huron County Jail after posting bond Saturday.

About 8:40 p.m. Demuth, of the state Highway Patrol, was at the Spring Street stoplight at the Ohio 99 intersection in Willard. The assistant Norwalk post commander saw Bischoff going northbound as Demuth turned north onto Ohio 99.

As Demuth followed the vehicle, he said Bischoff went off the right side of the road. When the driver went past Townline Road 12, Bischoff went left of center "better than half of his car width," Demuth said.

The trooper activated his lights and sirens at that point.

Bischoff, who continued going north on Ohio 99, went left of center again. He then went right onto Egypt Road and pulled into Davis' driveway.

"He went off the left side of the road when he made his turn," Demuth said.

Bischoff went through the driveway and went into a grassy area before turning and stopping in the driveway.

"That's when he stopped," Demuth said.

The trooper said he then attempted to get Bischoff out of the car, but the driver wouldn't comply.

"(Davis) ran out of the car ... and was ordering his dog to attack. That's when I activated my Taser and Tased him," Demuth said.

One of the prongs hit Davis' cigarettes, he said, so the Taser didn't affect him.

"He went back into his house. ... (Before that) he made threats to get his shotgun," the trooper said.

After Davis went into his house, Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Plew arrived for back-up.

Bischoff was taken into custody without further incident. However, Demuth said he and Plew had to take Davis to the ground.

Davis was charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of official business and disorderly conduct (intoxication).

"An aggravated menacing charge will be pending. That will be a felony," Demuth said.

Bischoff was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), fleeing and eluding, a seatbelt violation and a marked lanes violation.

"He refused a breath test. That was his first DUI," Demuth said.

The pursuit covered about 1 mile. Demuth said Bischoff maintained a speed of 45-50 mph, but didn't stop.

Why you all up in everybody's business? Ms. Busy body! Everyone has the right to their opinion just like you. Opinions are like butt holes everybody has one some just like to show theirs more than others. I just gave you mine! Who cares if someone goes to a tavern & has a drink & might of seen these guys there they ain't the ones in the paper now are they! Bartenders work @ taverns to that might be their job & these good o boys might be there alot! Gee wiz!!!

swiss family

WOW finally someone on here who makes sense... thank you to "cannotwait" and "csnighthawk".... yea these guys are probably a lot of fun.. but when you get drunk and get behind the wheel it is not only putting everyone's safety in harms way.. including their own, but it is deadly and illegal.... Thank you OSP for doing your job, and getting drunks off the road.. now they can be good old fun boys in Jail, where they belong, especially after not stopping, threatening physical harm to an officer, with a shotgun and a dog... next time either stay home and drink or get a designated driver.. or a taxi

proud mother of 3

Doubt they will go to jail!

jack langhals

Swiss,where have you been? I was getting worried !

Yall Make Me Sick

Well said!!!!

adollarshort

of course everyone on here likes the "good ol'boys" cuz they buy the rounds of drinks you all suck down! Not one of you will admit that this has been a long time coming and no one who really knows those two is surprized one bit that this happened! they are all just thankful he didn't kill anyone! The law is the law and no one's above it! OSP did their job! Now if they want to catch him again...just follow him straight to Havana, and you'll get him again, and again, and again, and again, and again....

proud mother of 3

So I am curious, how do you know they go to Havana again, again, and again?

Lillie Chaos

Sounds like "A dollar short" is pretty familiar with the Tavern.

beagleboy

Your SO obvious. I knew it was you when I saw the word "suprized" mispelled...

Dr. Information

Sorry, but just because these two are supposedly "good ole boys", does not excuse them from the law. The driver was drunk and didn't pull over till when.....after he turned down Egypt Rd and into this other mans driveway? Dear Lord thats a good mile down the road. Come on, thats not the OSP fault. This mans actions created this mess for him. Pull over, get your DUI, get your drunk ass off the road and be an adult about it. I know for a fact, he thought that turning into his friends driveway that he would get out of this DUI charge. Problem is, when the OSP activates their lights, the dash cam comes on.

Davis telling his dog(s) to attack? What a moron! The officer should of shot that taser at his balls and dropped this idiot.

Both got what they deserved and you cannot argue that.

Funny how one minute a person who gets a DUI gets smoked on this forum, yet because these two buffoons get pulled over, we should feel sorry for them and so should the OSP. So if these guys would of killed someone, would you still be calling them good ole boys?

Great job OSP, keep up the good work.

@Dr.Info The situation here did NOT involve anyone getting hurt. I am confident both men cited are extremely sorry for their behavior. I also doubt that they will ever make the same mistake again. I also hope that very soon you are exposed to situation so you get a chance to see an ego with a gun and badge. You need a reality check.

ladydye_5

So you are saying as long as noone is hurt and you are extremely sorry for your actions DUI's and Threatening an officer is ACCEPTABLE????? I have zero tolerance for anyone that drinks and drives. That is making BAD choices that can effect MY FAMILY. I say arrest them, FINE them, and take the license away. As for threatening an officer, I am MARRIED to an officer, when it is YOUR husband that someone decides to threaten....you will feel ALOT DIFFERENT. Drunk drives should be TAKEN OFF THE ROAD! If these men are the upstanding, good ole boys, that mean no harm, no criminal record kinda guys that you all call them they would have KNOWN to pull over immediately. I will also tell you I will take my EGO with a GUN over your insane view of reality.

Lillie Chaos

@ ladydye I am sure glad you have an ego with a gun to depend on. Where I live we don't have protection. You have to be prepared to defend yourself. I hope your ego/gun gets some of the menaces to society that are so evident in our community. How about asking him to drive down a few of the rural roads? Maybe just knowing he is doing that will stop a few crimes from happening. I promise to watch for him and give him a big welcoming wave.

lets tell the truth

really how did i know that you people would get on here slamming these two guys and talking sh*t because you people have nothing better to do such pathetic lives to talk about others... really people get a life and keep your hateful comments to yourself!!! GOSH!!!

Dr. Information

@lets tell the truth....So because people say these guys should act their age, not drink and drive, they are wrong for commenting?

proud mother of 3

Dr. Information, No they are not wrong to state the obviouse, but its people like you who get on here and judge people you do not know so harshly that makes people upset. You called him a moron, I am surprised it was not worse coming from you! I feel sorry for people like you, because karma will come around and you and your family will get whats coming to them for all your judging of good people in this paper. Makes me wonder what you do and where your family is when you are on here looking for people and their families to judge and degrade? You know what they say about people who are so quick to judge?

Dr. Information

The guys broke the law, yet proud mother of 3 defends them....oh how proud you must be. Its a comment section. If you don't like what you read, then don't read it, nobody is forcing you to read about these yahoo's who decided that drinking at a toys for tots function, getting plowed and then driving home, all the while ignoring the OSP car behind them with lights on, and then having to be subdued by 2 officers. Yup, Morons they are. Here's your sign. And I don't believe in Karma.

Nic Williams

You guys had me till the Karma thing. I mean really you cant yell at him for voicing his opinion negative as it may be and then say "Karma will come around you and your family and theyll get whats coming to them. If your going to stand up for someone do so but dont allow your anger to get the best of you and make you sound like those you dont like. Youre better than that. :)

Uputwhatwhere7

So where is the article about the gun getting drawn at Norwalk wal mart in the reflector? You would think it would be there before its in the register.

starryeyes83

Sit n Spin

Lillie Chaos

Nic Williams

Oh dear god why did we make a caps lock button. People listen we can read lower case and will still read your comment if you do so. You dont have to yell at us in cap letters. Give it a rest already. Please :)

Yall Make Me Sick

STOP TRYING TO BUST A CAP LOCK IN SOMEBODY'S BUTT! Take the dang caps off we see your comment!

Nic Williams

Ha ha. Lol. That's just silly.

Yall Make Me Sick

Lol

Dr. Information

Might get yourself in trouble? With who, the Norwalk Reflector? I was just asking a simple question. These guys may be stand up guys, I don't know them at all, nor care to. Heck, I don't even live anywhere close to them either, I use to live in Willard, and happened to live on Niver Rd back in the day so I know the area very well. Poor judgement by them and a poor defense on your part, thats all I am saying.
