- Ross A. Poynter, Hillcrest Road, Wellsville, reportedly called 911 seven times between 1:12 a.m. and 1:50 a.m. from the area of the marina in Wellsville. Poynter said he was freezing and out of gas, mentioned he may jump into the river to get help and complained about how long help was taking to arrived. Dispatchers told Poynter help was on the way and to stop calling. Wellsville police arrived and gave Poynter a ride home after he denied wanting to harm himself and refused help from Tri-County Ambulance, which offered him a ride to East Liverpool City Hospital. The 911 dispatcher then received two more calls from Poynter's residence, where he again threatened to harm himself. Deputies found him outside in only sleeping pants and a T-shirt. He denied dialing 911 or that he needed medical care, so he was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct.
