Struggle with deputies leads to indictment


A Marysville man has been indicted following an altercation with deputies.
The Union County Grand Jury has indicted Cameron Robert Hastings, 31, of 14000 Hinton Mill Road, charging him with three counts of assault and one count of obstructing official business.
According to court documents, at 4:03 p.m. Nov. 20, deputies responded to a domestic dispute at the Hinton Mill Road home. Eventually the parties, a husband and wife, were successfully separated.
At 5:44 p.m., the same day, the Sheriff’s Office received another call from the wife claiming the husband, Hastings, was threatening to commit suicide.
Deputies returned to the scene and found Hastings.
“He had been drinking that night,” said Assistant Union County Prosecutor Rick Rodger.
Hastings repeatedly told first responders that he wanted to die and that it was his right to end his life. Deputies treated the situation as a mental health crisis and tried to convince Hastings to go to a medical facility for evaluation. Deputies and medical personnel at the scene determined Hastings was a danger to himself.
“Deputies informed Cameron of such matter and he stated, ‘The only way I’m leaving my house is by force.’”
According to court documents, “After multiple attempts for a peaceful resolution, Cameron became agitated and forced the deputies to go hands on with Cameron. During the altercation, multiple deputies and Cameron went to the ground in a struggle.”
Rodger said Hastings allegedly shoved Dep. William Stuff.
“It was a pretty good push,” Rodger said.
Dep. Kelly Nawman sustained a cut to her face and a bruise to the left eye, “while falling to the ground.”
Hastings also allegedly kicked a paramedic at the scene.
Officials said that once Hastings was inside the cruiser, he used the interior cage to hurt himself.
Hastings and Nawman were taken to Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released.
If convicted, Hastings could face as many as five and a half years in prison.
Also indicted was:
– Patricia Lynn Howard, 59, and her son Michael E. Hayslip, 33, both of 14533 Route 739, Richwood. Howard and Hayslip are each charged with identity fraud against a person in a protected class, theft from a person in a protected class and misuse of credit cards.
Rodger said that between May and November, Howard and Hayslip allegedly used the woman’s mother’s debit card, “for their own financial needs.”
He said pother family members got concerned and contacted law enforcement investigators.
Rodger said the pair allegedly too about $12,000 from the elderly woman.
If convicted on all counts, Howard could face as many as 18 years in prison. Hayslip could face as many as eight years in prison.
– Rickey Lance Salmons, 18, of 19306 Boerger Road. Salmons is charged with one count each of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and corrupting another with drugs.
Rodger said that in the evening of Dec. 31, Salmons allegedly went to the home of a 13 year old girl.
Salmons and the girl allegedly met outside the house but eventually went in after the girl’s mother left. He allegedly gave the girl marijuana and had sex with her.
“The mother allegedly found them together in bed in the morning and she called the sheriff,” Rodger said.
If convicted, Salmon could face as many 36 months in jail.
