On 17 Apr 19 Deputy Young responded to Fearing Township to a possible domestic incident.  In speaking with all parties it was determined to be unfounded.

On 18 Apr 19 at approximately 0927 hours Lt. Hornbeck was driving north on Seventh Street in the City of Marietta, Ohio, behind a maroon Mazda.  The driver of the Mazda made an abrupt left turn into the parking lot of Tim Horton’s, nearly striking a vehicle driving south on Seventh Street.  Lt. Hornbeck initiated the emergency lights and once on the parking lot of Tim Horton’s the driver of the Mazda accelerated rapidly around the building, through the drive-thru (passing cars), then turning left onto Seventh Street.  Lights and siren were both activated signaling the vehicle to stop.  The driver traveled on Seventh Street, turning left across the Speedway parking lot and back out onto Green Street.  The driver then made a right turn onto Hardwood Court.  The driver, later identified as Levi Scott Jarvis, continued at a high rate of speed on Hardwood Center Drive, across Pike Street, striking a Jeep Cherokee that was driving on Pike Street.  Jarvis failed to stop and continued across the parking lot of the Verizon business, traveling south on Seventh Street across Wayne Street, and through the stop sign into a grassy area.  Jarvis eventually crashed into a large rock flower planter and a red truck parked in the 300 block of South Seventh Street.  Jarvis exited the vehicle and fled on foot towards the Ohio River. Once at the river, Jarvis jumped into the water and started to swim across.  Jarvis apparently changed his mind in the cold water and retreated back to shore where he was taken into custody.  Jarvis, age 21, 106 Meadowcrest Lane, Little Hocking, OH, was placed under arrest.  Jarvis advised Lt. Hornbeck that he had a baggie of marijuana in the vehicle.  Also noted in the vehicle was a loaded 32 cal. revolver.  Jarvis advised Officers that he had consumed three Xanax pills and was under the influence of them. Jarvis said he did not even know he hit the white Jeep because he was “[expletive] up”.  Deputy J McConnell had also recovered a baggie of  .82 grams of methamphetamine.  Upon being processed into the Jail, two live rounds of .32 cal. ammo was found on Jarvis.  A standardized field sobriety test was given to Jarvis, which he performed poorly on. Jarvis made the comment “I failed”.  Jarvis was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, driving while under the influence of alcohol/drugs, no operator’s license, reckless operation, failure to comply, failure to stop after an accident and possession of drugs.

Deputies met with Sarah Morris who advised she and James Andrews were in an argument and she picked up a baseball bat and was threatening to hit him with it.  Sarah Loise Morris, age 30, was placed under arrest for domestic violence and was transported to the Washington County Jail.
