Two people were arrested in Bowling Green over the weekend on menacing charges after making apparently racially-charged statements.
The first incident was reported at 2:52 a.m. Saturday in City Lot 1.
At that time, an officer observed an argument involving Bryan Whitacre, 24, Bowling Green, and other individuals who were walking away from him.
Whitacre reportedly was also yelling at some point during the incident.
One of the victims, a black female who was walking with a black male, indicated that Whitacre had threatened to lynch or hang her, and that she "feared for her life." Another female at the scene also indicated Whitacre had made the threat.
Whitacre was arrested for aggravated menacing and taken to jail. He was reportedly intoxicated.

When Col. Brenda Hollis attended Bowling Green State University in the 1960s she didn’t have a clear career path in mind. SEE MORE PHOTOS

Instead the 1968 graduate took the courses that interested her, and if there were courses that interested her that she couldn’t fit into her schedule, she’d buy the books anyway to get at least some familiarity with those subjects.

Speaking at the BGSU graduation ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences and Firelands Saturday, Hollis urged graduates to remain flexible as they travel life’s path and let their “passions and interests” guide them. “Take advantage of opportunities that present themselves to you and you may find that this flexibility… leads you to the path of what you should be doing at each point in your life.”

For Hollis that meant when she graduated from BGSU turning down a job offer from the CIA and joining the Peace Corps. (That detail was greeted by a burst of applause when Provost Rodney Rogers mentioned it in his introduction of Hollis.)

That winding path led Hollis into a 20-year career in the Air Force and a leading role in the military judicial system. It put her in a prominent place in the revival of the international justice system in which she served as lead counsel at the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia, the Special Court for Sierra Leone and the prosecution of Liberian leader Charles Taylor.

Distracted driving suspected in crash PDF Print E-mail

Two drivers were injured Friday night in a two-vehicle rollover crash believed to have been caused by a distracted driver.
The injuries resulting from the crash at Roachton Road and Ohio 199 were believed to be serious but non-life threatening, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. SEE MORE PHOTOS
The crash occurred at about 10 p.m. when Christian Berlin, 22, Oak Harbor, failed to yield at a stop sign while traveling east on Roachton in a 2005 Chevy pickup truck. Berlin’s vehicle struck a 2004 Chevy driven by Alyssa Headley, 23, whose vehicle became overturned in a nearby field.
The patrol reported that neither vehicle had any passengers.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, but a patrol representative said Berlin was not wearing a seat belt and was distracted while using a cell phone.
Berlin was cited for failure to yield at a stop sign.
