The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Ex-Ohio State Star Indicted In Shooting
Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon has been indicted on charges accusing him of firing shots at another driver during a road rage incident last year.
Prosecutors in Delaware County said Friday that the 63-year-old Stillwagon was indicted on four second-degree felony counts of felonious assault, all with firearm specifications.
Police said Stillwagon, who was on a motorcycle, fired shots at the driver of a pickup truck on Sept. 30. One of the shots grazed the 41-year-old man’s head.
Strillwagon, who was legally carrying the gun, is a college Hall of Fame middle guard who helped the Buckeyes to a national championship in 1968.
His attorney has said he fired in self-defense. A phone message was left at his home Friday. His arraignment is Monday.
