On 15 Jul 2022 Deputy Stillson was dispatched to State Route 821, Muskingum Township, in reference to Aaron Hebert refusing to leave.  It was reported that Hebert still had a key to the business and had tried to make his way back inside.  Hebert was upset and continued to use profanity and vulgarity towards personnel.  Hebert advised he was upset about a work decision.  While attempting to discuss with Hebert the issue of his trespassing, he began to make a phone call, stating he was calling “the big boss”.  Hebert was advised that he was under investigation for criminal trespass at that time and that he was going to need to vacate the property. Hebert stated he didn’t have a ride and he wouldn’t be going anywhere.  Hebert continued to argue with deputies.  A ride was offered to Hebert which he accepted.  As Hebert was standing up Deputy Stillson advised him that he wanted him to understand he was trespassed from the property with him walking away and stating “I don’t care”.  Deputy Stillson advised Hebert that he wasn’t finished speaking with him, with him stating “just because you’re a cop, I don’t have to listen to you.” Hebert was advised he needed to hear what he was saying, and again he was advised about the trespassing complaint with him continuing to talk over Deputy Stillson while walking away from him.  At that time Aaron Hebert was advised that he was  going to be placed under arrest.  Deputy Stillson took ahold of Hebert’s arm, at which time Hebert shoved Deputy Stillson away.  Deputy Stillson immediately gained control of Hebert where he could be safely arrested.  Aaron Joshua Hebert, age 22, 284 Ridgewood Drive, Marietta, OH, was transported to the Washington County Jail where he was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing official business.
