Sheriff: Woman broke into home, petted the family dog, washed the dishes and left

VINTON COUNTY, Ohio — A woman was arrested and charged with burglary after sheriff’s officials say she broke into a home in Hamden, Ohio Monday morning.

Officials with the Vinton County Sheriff’s Office said around 9 a.m., deputies arrived and spoke with a resident who said a woman broke into her house and began acting bizarrely. The victim said she entered through the back door, sat down on the couch and began to pet the family dog. Then, she washed the dishes and left the house.

As deputies spoke with the victim, sheriff’s officials received a call that a woman matching the description of the burglar was knocking on doors in the area of Omar Street in Hamden.

Sheriff’s officials said Cheyenne Ewing gave deputies a false name, and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. She advised she’d been up for two days.

She was arrested, taken to jail and charged with burglary.

$1,600 needed for medical care for iguana thrown at Ohio restaurant

PAINESVILLE, Ohio– The Lake Humane Society is raising money for the care of an iguana injured in a bizarre incident inside a Painesville restaurant.

Officers were called to a Perkins restaurant April 16 for a disorderly customer. Police said 49-year-old Arnold Teeter pulled the iguana out from under his shirt, started swinging it over his head and threw it at the manager.

Teeter was arrested a short time later, and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and cruelty to animals.

The iguana, now named Copper, suffered a leg fracture. The Lake Humane Society said she also has metabolic bone diseases and was missing a portion of her tail.

The lizard is under protective custody and the humane society is waiting for permission to perform surgery. The estimated cost of care is $1,600.

“We need your help to give this innocent reptile a second chance at life,” the human society said Thursday.

When Teeter appeared in court last month, he was disruptive and refused to surrender the iguana.

Three deer crash college baseball game in Cleveland

CLEVELAND – There were three extra outfielders during Case Western Reserve University’s baseball game on Saturday.

In the bottom of the first against Brandeis University, a trio of deer hopped the fence at Nobby’s Ballpark in Cleveland.

The animals trotted across to left field, where players opened a gate. But the group opted to go back across to the right field fence to make an exit.

It was all caught on video and posted to the university’s athletic department’s YouTube page.

CWRU baseball split the double-header, winning the first, 6-0, and losing the second, 7-5.
