He was arrested after driving on Interstate 77 in Guernsey County following an attack
The patrol said Ryumshin, 34, of Kiev, matched the description of the man who sprayed the face of trooper Rayetta Calhoun. A container holding a chemical substance used in the assault was found inside his car.
Calhoun was called to a drivers' exam station about a man who presented a fraudulent Social Security card and a resident alien card, hoping to obtain an Ohio Identification Card, said Sgt. Don Ebie of the patrol's Canton-area post.
He said Calhoun arrived as Ryumshin was leaving the license station. According to the patrol, she asked him to stop but he quickly turned and sprayed a substance similar to Mace in her face.
Then he left, driving away. Calhoun was treated at Aultman Hospital and was released.
Lt. John Born of the patrol's headquarters in Columbus said the state identification card is available to people who need some form of Ohio ID, but it does not entitle a person to drive.
Ebie did not know whether Ryumshin was in the United States legally. The patrol notified the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service
