Rookwood brawl: the plot thickens

The Enquirer has just updated their original account of a brawl Monday at Rookwood Commons during which Norwood police arrested five people on various charges. South Fairmont resident Finesha Owensby, who along with her 20-year-old son and a 14-year-old boy was arrested in connection to the incident, has filed a complaint against a Norwood police officer. She claims police “got the wrong people” when they confused her with two other girls, but she also said her son Michael did attempt to break up a fight two women were having. She says he was not disrespectful to police and that officers had no reason to pepper spray him, her, and the 14-year-old boy. Lt. Tom Williams with the NPD commented only that the courts decide a person’s guilt and that Finesha Owensby “will have her day in court.”
