BG man sentenced for spitting on police officer

A Bowling Green man who spit on a police officer has been sentenced to community control.

Sean Kogge, 36, appeared Dec. 19 in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Molly Mack.

He had been indicted in August for harassment with a bodily substance, a fifth-degree felony.

He had pleaded guilty to that charge in November.

Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Lara Rump recommended community control.

On July 14, Kogge was found sitting in a thicket of trees in the 800 block of Conneaut Avenue. Multiple witnesses reported him in their yards and being aggressive. He denied the accusations.

He was taken to the hospital for medical clearance, where he spit at an officer.

Mack imposed a sentence of two years of community control and placement in adult probation’s intensive supervision program.
