  • Ryan applauds President's decision to consult Congress
  • Supreme Court backs records request 
  • Cleveland man sentenced to hold 'idiot' sign
  • Perez pleads no contest in drug charge
    Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Perez has been found guilty of a misdemeanor drug charge after pleading no contest today in Rocky River Municipal Court.

    Police found a little more than one-third pound of marijuana in two packages delivered to Perez’s home in June. Perez admitted that pot found in the house was his.

    The star reliever was sentenced to one year probation with a $250 dollar fine.  Perez has also been ordered to counsel local youth about the perils of drug use.

    Ryan applauds President's decision to consult Congress
    A member of the Northeast Ohio Congressional delegation is applauding President Obama for consulting with lawmakers before taking military action in Syria.

    Democrat Tim Ryan from Ohio’s 13th District tells the Youngstown Business Journal that Mr. Obama’s decision was the “correct constitutional move.” 

    Ryan says the President’s previous career as a constitutional law professor may had led to the decision. 

    House debate on military action is set to begin next Monday.


    Supreme Court backs records request 
    The Ohio Supreme Court is backing a southwest Ohio man's request for records from the State Highway Patrol relating to a traffic stop.

    The court unanimously ruled today in favor of sending the issue back to a lower court, and says the patrol hadn't properly documented why it wanted audio and video recordings of the 2011 traffic stop withheld.

    The 12th District Court of Appeals in Clermont County had sided with the patrol which claims the records could be shielded as part of an investigation, along with impaired-driver reports.


    Cleveland man sentenced to hold 'idiot' sign
    A man who threatened officers in Cleveland is making a court-ordered public apology by standing near a police station with a sign describing himself as an idiot.

    A judge ordered 58-year-old Richard Dameron to stand outside a district police station with a sign bearing an apology. He began the vigil Monday and must stand outside for three hours each day for the rest of the week.

    Dameron was convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls.
