2 men arrested for smashing pumpkins in BG

Two men who were reportedly drunk were arrested Sunday for criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

A Bowling Green Police Division officer was on routine patrol on East Wooster Street approaching North Enterprise Street at 4:18 a.m. The officer observed two individuals standing in the roadway in the 100 block of North Enterprise Street and then saw one of the individuals throw a pumpkin into the roadway, according to the police report.

The officer turned the patrol car around and when he turned onto North Enterprise, he observed each man holding a large pumpkin above his head and throw it into the roadway, according to the report.

When the two men observed the officer, they fled and were located a few minutes later, according to the report.

It was discovered both Adam Hall and Blaine Belcher had fake Ohio driver’s licenses in their possession with all information correct except date of birth, which made them old enough to purchase alcohol, according to the report.

Hall, 18, of Botkins, and Belcher, 19, of Lima, each was charged with criminal damaging, criminal mischief, theft, underage/under the influence and display of fictitious ID.

They were taken to jail, and both posted bond Monday.
