Amherst Resident Pulls Plastic Gun On Police

Amherst, OH - Saturday morning, August 11th at 3:00 AM, officers from the Amherst Police Department responded to a 911 call from 121 Forest Hill Drive for a domestic disturbance in which a male caller indicated he and his fiancé were involved in an argument.

As the officers were walking up the driveway, a male from the residence approached two officers with his hands out of view.  The officers ordered the male to show his hands at which time the male suspect pointed a handgun at the officers and then retreated.  The officers moved to cover and/or concealment and requested additional units. 

A perimeter was established around the house with an additional six (6) officers.  Dispatch attempted to make contact with the female and/or a 4-year old child inside the residence but several attempts were unsuccessful.  At approximately 5:00AM, the Lorain County SWAT team was contacted and responded to the area. 

The SWAT team utilized one of their armored personnel carriers (Snoopy) to stage an immediate response team in front of the house while negotiators attempted to make contact with anyone in the home.

At 8:34 AM, the female from the home contacted the Amherst Police Department dispatch center via her cellular phone.  The female advised dispatch that her fiancé was asleep in the bedroom.  The female was instructed to gather up her 4-year old and go to the back door and meet officers.  Once the female and child were secured, officers made entry into the home where the male suspect was eventually placed under arrest.

The Amherst Police Detective Bureau did recover a handgun in a kitchen cabinet drawer.  Upon further examination, the handgun was a plastic toy replica of a 9mm Semi-Automatic

The male, later identified as 26-year old Jason P Pence of 121 Forest Hill Drive, Amherst was transported to the Amherst Police Department where charges of Aggravated Menacing F-5 (2 counts), Inducing Panic F-5(1 count), and Resisting Arrest M-2 (1 count) were filed.

There were no injuries reported to any of the parties or officers involved.

    Tyrod Taylor is the present, and Baker Mayfield is the future, but what would happen if, say, Taylor suffered an injury in Week 2? Would Hue Jackson automatically turn it over to Mayfield?
