OTTAWA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A Port Clinton man arrested for OVI two times in two days is currently facing a felony charge of aggravated vehicular assault. 

Scott Thompson, 40, of Marblehead, Ohio, is locked up in the Ottawa County Jail after his latest crash.

The first happened on March 22, 2015 at 9:23 p.m.  According to police Thompson was involved in a one vehicle crash on SR 269 at the entrance ramp to SR 2 eastbound, in Danbury Township, Ottawa County. He drove off the left side of the road striking a concrete median barrier disabling his 2003 Dodge Neon. Police say he showed signs of impairment and was arrested for OVI and summoned to appear in Ottawa County Municipal Court on March 23, 2015.

The very next day, after court, Thompson was involved in a second crash. This one took place at 10:13 p.m. on SR 53 at the intersection of State Road in Portage Township. 

Before the crash occurred, Thompson was reportedly driving a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche in an erratic manner, swerving left of center and nearly missed striking several vehicles head on. Thompson ran a red traffic light at State Road and struck a 2002 Ford Taurus that was traveling eastbound on State Road. That vehicle was driven by Jenna Ziegan, 21, Marblehead. She was transported her to Magruder Hospital.

An injured Thompson tried to leave the scene but was stopped by witnesses. He too was taken to Magruder Hospital and eventually arrested for OVI, aggravated vehicular assault, and red light violation. 

He is currently in the Ottawa County Jail pending his arraignment.
