A domestic dispute which began at a residence on Patterson Road in Bethel carried over into the parking lot of the Dollar General Store at the corner of state Route 125 and Airport Road Monday, March 1.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the parking lot where they met Ora Angel and her children.

Angel reported that she had been in an argument with her live-in boyfriend, Mark Bolin, 37, at their residence. As she was leaving their home in her minivan, Bolin threw a hammer at her vehicle breaking a window behind the driver’s seat of the vehicle.

The hammer went through the window and struck Eli Bolin, 2, in the face. Tristan Angel, 5, who was also a passenger in the vehicle was not harmed but picked up the hammer and tossed it out the window.

Ora Angel told authorities that she drove from the scene with the children to the Dollar General Store.

An Emergency Medical Services unit responded and transported Angel and her children to Brown County General Hospital for examination and treatment. It was reported that Eli Bolin was the only person needing treatment. He received stitches in his lip.

When deputies arrived at the residence to take Mark Bolin into custody, he was not there.

After consulting the Clermont County prosecutor's office, the following charges were filed against Mark Bolin: domestic violence, aggravated menacing and two counts of child endangering. All charges are misdemeanors of the first degree which carry possible jail confinement of six months for each charge.

Bolin was arrested Tuesday, March 2 and confined to the county jail.

A protection order was issued on March 3 and Bolin's bond was set at $16,000. There is a court hearing set for Wednesday, March 17 before Judge Tom Herman in Clermont County Municipal Court.
