“I’ve got genuine concerns about the safety of the community,” said Barberton Municipal Court Judge Todd McKenney as he ordered the 42-year-old Canton man held in jail until he posts $50,000 bond.

Everett served a weekend in jail for a previous felony conviction and had his license suspended for three years, getting it back on July 1, 2018.

His attorney, Eugene O’Byrne, argued for a lesser bond, citing the fact the U.S. Air Force veteran worked two jobs.

Everett appears in Barberton Municipal Court again Friday as the judge revisits his bond and sets a date for Summit County Common Pleas Court.

Everett faces up to three years in jail, $10,500 in fines, and a lifetime suspension of his driver’s license if convicted
