According to the Enquirer, Norwood police picked up John Wethington, 52, of St. Bernard after they found him passed out in front of a Norwood business late Monday. Unable to walk unassisted, he was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge while intoxicated and taken to the Norwood police station where he allegedly struck Sgt. James Hicks when he tried to put him in a holding cell. Wethington was booked into the Hamilton County jail at 11:30 p.m. with an additional charge of assault on a police officer. No information was provided about Sgt. Hicks’ condition. We hope his injuries were minor and wish him a speedy recovery.
