The Summit County Sheriff's report

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a domestic violence call on Monday at an apartment complex under construction in Silver Creek.

According to a report from the Sheriff’s Office, the complaint was made by the construction superintendent. He pointed out two of his workers — a male and female who live together. The construction superintendent told deputies that the female worker reported to him that she had been fighting with the man over drugs and he hit her with a snow shovel.

Deputies interviewed the couple separately, and each one told police that the man had swung the snow shovel at the woman but missed. Once police identified the individuals, they discovered both had multiple arrest warrants.

The couple consented to a search of their vehicle, which is also where they live, and deputies discovered drug paraphernalia. The 42-year-old man was also searched and police located more drug paraphernalia. He was arrested on a felony theft warrant and transported to the Summit County Jail, according to the report.
