Grand jury gets DUI case

Hamilton man faces 6th charge

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HAMILTON — A man who faces his sixth drunken-driving charge in connection with an accident that injured two small children in a stroller was bound over Thursday to a Butler County grand jury.

        Police say Ronald Wayne Jarrett, 34, of Hamilton, left the Pub Club tavern, 610 Heaton St., at 5:30 p.m. April 21, and backed his pickup truck into the children while their mother, Amy Reed, talked on a pay phone.

        Ms. Reed's 2-year-old son, Samuel Abshear, required at least 15 stitches on his face and inside his mouth. Ms. Reed and her 1-year-old daughter, Sandra Abshear, were treated and released from a hospital.

        Judge John Rosmarin of Hamilton Municipal Court ruled Thursday that there was probable cause to send the case to the grand jury.

        Mr. Jarrett, a bricklayer, is free on a property bond.

        According to a police report, Mr. Jarrett refused to take a breath test and field sobriety tests. The report also said Mr. Jarrett had to lean against another car to support himself and walked very unsteadily.
