Man arrested for vandalism at community corrections center


A Napoleon man has been charged with vandalism of a government agency after reportedly damaging a wall at the correction center.

On Dec. 14, Bowling Green police were dispatched to the Northwest Community Corrections Center on East Gypsy Lane Road on a vandalism report.

A corrections employee showed the officer a video of the common room at 8:20 p.m. on Dec. 13. The video showed inmate, Blake Heisler, sitting in a chair and it appeared he was speaking to other inmates.

The video then showed Heisler getting up from his chair and running toward a wall. He then jumped into the wall causing a body size hole in the drywall, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

The employee told the officer that Heisler claimed that he was trying to prove that there was no “worm hole” in the wall.

The approximate damage to the wall was $500 and the employee stated that the area would have to be roped off due to the damage.

Heisler, 38, was removed from the program at the corrections center and was arrested for vandalism of a government entity.

While being processed at the jail, he asked about being charged with a felony. After the affirmative answer, he reportedly said “I did not mean to do it. It was an accident.”

On Dec. 21, he was released on an own recognizance bond and the case was bound over to the Wood County Common Pleas Court.
