Officers Slashed During Domestic Dispute Call

WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) - The man accused of attacking two police officers with a knife on Sunday will be arraigned on Tuesday, Action News reported.

Timothy Reiner, 29, slashed the officers while they responded to a domestic dispute involving Reiner and his parents, police said.

Patrolmen Casey Carty, 27, and Brian Pasti, 39, were called to the domestic dispute about 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Reiner's Westlake home.

"Timothy Reiner was arguing with his parents apparently over a matter involving the family dogs," Capt. Guy Turner said. "It was known that he possibly had a knife which he did produce and slashed ... two of our officers."

Carty suffered a serious wound to the right side of his neck and had surgery at Fairview General Hospital in Cleveland, Turner said in a news release.

Pasti received a less serious wound to the right chest and was being held for observation.

Reiner was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted aggravated murder. Reiner had a history of mental illness, Turner said.
