Mark A. Adams was arraigned Friday in Saginaw District Court on a felony charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer and a misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace.

Adams was arrested at the March 4 meeting by three Bridgeport Township police officers. Authorities say he refused to stop talking when township officials told him to do so.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Health officials say 23 cases of mumps are confirmed in an outbreak at Ohio State University. Eighteen students and a staff member are among those infected.

University and public health officials warned Ohio State students, faculty and staff to take precautions to keep themselves healthy as they headed back to class Monday after spring break.

A Columbus Public Health spokesman says authorities are mapping cases to determine how people became infected and any links between them. He says three people have been hospitalized for at least one day.

The confirmed cases involve 11 women and 12 men. They range in age from 18 to 48.

The spokesman says they include a relative of a student and three people who don't study or work at Ohio State but have links to the university community.

Goodyear's blimp replacement takes flight in Ohio

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — The next generation of the well-known Goodyear blimp has made its first flight, cruising over part of northeast Ohio beneath bright blue skies.

A spokesman for Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. tells the Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1ixbzIv ) the airship had no problems during the debut Monday from a hangar in the Akron area.

Goodyear says the high-tech, helium-filled airship is bigger, quicker and more maneuverable. It has a semi-rigid internal structure that wasn't present in earlier models and raises questions about whether it is truly a blimp, though the company still refers to it as such.

The airship's silver balloon-like body is emblazoned with Goodyear's yellow logo on a blue background.

The so-far-unnamed airship is expected to have a longer flight range and better aerial broadcast capabilities for event coverage.

More people ban themselves at Ohio gambling sites

CLEVELAND (AP) — The lists of people banning themselves from Ohio's casinos and racinos have grown as the state's gambling industry expands.

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/1p4DjUY ) reports nearly 750 gamblers from 11 states and Ontario excluded themselves from Ohio's four casinos by last month through a voluntary program. That's up from less than 550 in September.

A similar program exists for the racinos, which feature horse racing tracks with slots-style video lottery terminals. About 80 people banned themselves from those facilities by September, when two racinos were open. Now four are open, and the list has nearly doubled.

People can ban themselves for a year, five years or for life.

Officials expect the number of problem gamblers seeking help to increase as there is more awareness and exposure to the industry.

LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) — A sheriff's office in north-central Ohio says a deputy responding to a domestic dispute fatally shot a man whose wife and mother had told authorities that he physically assaulted them.

The Richland County Sheriff's Office says Brian Garber was killed Sunday night at his parents' home in Lexington, roughly 55 miles northeast of Columbus. The office says Garber's wife had called 911 and reported that Garber had a gun and was at that home.

Authorities did not release details about exactly where and how the shooting occurred. They say Garber died at the scene. The Mansfield News Journal reports Garber was 28.

The shooting remains under investigation. The sheriff's office says three deputies and a supervisor who were involved have been put on administrative leave in accordance with office policy.
