An incident over the weekend has resulted in one man facing jail time for felonious assault, among other things, according to the Clermont County Sheriff’s Department.
Kurtis A. Mathers, 31, of Ireton Trees Road, is charged with firing a gun in his parent’s home at members of a paramedic team that was examining his father.
The incident was not the first time that Mathers has had a run-in with the law, according to Sheriff Rodenberg.
According to the sheriff, Mathers was convicted of criminal damaging and assault in 1996 and telephone harassment in 2006, neither incident involving family members. However, this time, Mathers will be charged with two counts of felonious assault, one of improperly discharging a firearm in a habitation and one count of domestic violence.
After shooting the weapon, Mathers fled in his vehicle, but turned himself in on Saturday morning. The only injury reported was to a paramedic who was bitten by the family dog during the incident.
