Norwood man arrested for aggravated menacing

According to the Enquirer, Norwood resident Bruce Williams, 46, was arrested Sunday night in Silverton, accused of threatening a female motorcyclist in a road rage incident. Vera Velmerig told police Williams drove too close to her rear tire when she was riding a motorcycle on Montgomery Road. After she allowed him to pass in front her, she reported he suddenly stopped, nearly causing a crash. Then Williams “acted like he was going to shoot” Velmerig and got out of his car, the report said. She escaped unharmed and Williams was later arrested at his home.

The Enquirer states that Williams’ lawyer, Joe Auciello, told Hamilton County Municipal Judge Lisa Allen during a court appearance this morning that Velmerig was following his client, not the other way around as the report says. He pled not guilty, and the judge set bond on the misdemeanor charge at $5,000.
