Witness describes 1st moments of large industrial building fire in east Columbus

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 21:05

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Firefighters were first called to the scene of a fire alarm at an industrial building in the 300 block of Centab Drive in east Columbus around 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Soon after, firefighters deemed it necessary to exit the building and fight the fire from the outside as more firefighters were called to the scene.

People living nearby stood and watched the fire for most of the night.

Natasha Glover lives near the scene and told 10TV, “I heard the first boom and my boyfriend just kind of grabbed me. We didn’t know what was going on. The first thing we thought was get to safety right away.”

“We saw the outer parts of the building collapsing. You could hear the ruckus and everything coming down from the fire. It was really a sight to see. I had never seen a fire that bad before in real life.”

As of 10:30 p.m. Friday, there were no reports of injuries as the fire continued to burn.

Video shows suspect hitting Pickerington cruiser while trying to escape officers

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 20:44

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — A police chase in Pickerington ended Friday morning with one man in custody and a police cruiser out of service.

Pickerington Police Chief Tod Cheney says it happened just after 3 a.m.

Video acquired by 10TV shows just how the scene just off Diley Road played out.

An officer noticed a suspicious vehicle in an area off of Diley Road that is booming with construction and is no stranger to criminals.

“Since last August, we've had at least seven reported construction- related thefts,” Cheney said.

Thinking that might have been the case here, the officer chased the suspect to the Redbud Commons.

Dash cam video shows the suspect pulling into a driveway and even getting out

“The suspect then suddenly backed up — the officer kind of tried to block him in, but the suspect ended up driving around the police cruiser, up into the yard of a condo and around the police cruiser,” Cheney said.

He said the officer knew the subdivision only had one way in and one way out, so he sped in the opposite direction, trying to cut him off

“The suspect slammed into the front end of the police cruiser and knocked the police cruiser out of commission with the damage,” Cheney said.

The suspect ended up going through a person's yard, taking out a tree and bushes, before getting back to Diley and tried to turn onto S.R. 256, but lost control and hit a tree.

He then got out and ran before officers used a taser on him and took him into custody.

Cheney says the suspect's name has not yet been released nor his charges but says the Fairfield County Prosecutor's Office has the case.

Cheney says the officer involved in that chase escaped injury.

'Easy Rider' star and writer Peter Fonda has died at age 79

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 16:50

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Peter Fonda, the son of a Hollywood legend who became a movie star in his own right both writing and starring in counterculture classics like "Easy Rider," has died. His family says in a statement that Fonda died Friday morning at his home in Los Angeles. He was 79.

The official cause of death was respiratory failure due to lung cancer.

Born into Hollywood royalty as Henry Fonda's only son, Peter Fonda carved his own path with his non-conformist tendencies and earned an Oscar nomination for co-writing "Easy Rider." He never won an Oscar but would later be nominated for best actor in "Ulee's Gold."

He was the brother of actress Jane Fonda.

The family says this is one of the saddest moments of their lives and asks for privacy.

'The video does not lie': Whistleblower speaks out after animals seized from pet shop, home

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 16:28

NOTE: Some may find the footage in the video player above disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A former employee of a troubled central Ohio pet store is speaking out after Columbus Humane seized hundreds of animals.

It happened Tuesday at the Petting Zoo Pet Shop on West Broad Street and the owners' residence on Demorest Road.

Tina Morris worked at the pet shop for about 1 1/2 years. She said while there were some red flags, she stayed for the animals.

"I always gave it my best. I always did what I could to provide and protect the animals," Morris said.

Morris said she was one of about two employees responsible for about 100 animals. She said they often didn't have the resources to take proper care of them.

However, it wasn't until July that she finally had enough. Morris said the owners were on vacation and called, needing her to check on their dogs. When she got to the home, she was horrified.

"I turn the corner and it was like a live PETA commercial," Morris said. "It's heartbreaking to know you can't do anything. The only thing I could think to do is call the Humane Society right away."

She took videos on the property. One inside of a barn or garage, the other in the backyard. You can see dozens of dogs packed into cages. There was also a freezer of dead animals with maggots all over. At that moment, she believed the rumors and complaints she heard about the owners.

"I don't want to believe they can be such a monstrous person to do that to innocent animals and then when you walk in and see it, unequivocally, these animals are in horrible conditions. It's heartbreaking," she said. "The video does not lie."

Morris said she wants the owners to be held responsible. She said she talked with them briefly and turned in her keys.

"They don't think they've done anything wrong. They've seen the video I sent you. They think the cages are clean," she said.

10TV went to the owners' home and knocked on the door. No one answered. Columbus Humane said Tuesday charges will be filed.

Ohio's 1st high school for teens recovering from addiction opens in Columbus

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 16:21

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A high school dedicated to helping teens in recovery is preparing to welcome students for the upcoming school year.

When Heartland High School welcomes their first eight students, the school will become the first recovery high school in the state.

“I think one of the coolest things is we just meet kids where they’re at,” Principal Paige Stewart said.

Stewart said as teens complete treatment, they need a safe and capable environment to offer support as they navigate recovery.

“When they re-enter that environment with the same people, they were using with the same stressors — its really, really hard to stay sober," she said.

The school days at Heartland not only start a little later but also allow time for one-on-one counseling and class work.

Stewart says donations have helped get the school up and running and have allowed the private school to offer students admission without tuition for the first two years.

Sons want answers after father was found brutally beaten in their Franklinton home

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/16/2019 - 14:55

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Lee Martin was brutally attacked in his own bed more than one month ago. The death was never reported by police or any local media outlet, and 10TV just learned about the case this week because of a viewer tip.

"I don’t see how anybody could do that to anybody, let alone an 85-year-old man," said Regina Wiget, a longtime friend of Martin.

In the early hours of June 29, someone attacked Martin in his home on Martin Avenue. Later that morning, one of his sons found him covered in blood and called 911.

"My brother Lee gave me a call at 7:30 in the morning," said one of Martin's sons, John Martin. "He was freaking out and said something happened to dad."

John Martin says, what happened, was someone attacked his dad with a large knife, perhaps a machete or meat cleaver.

"It just puts thoughts in your head, things you want to do to somebody," John Martin said of the sight of his father in the hospital after the attack.

The injuries were gruesome and ultimately fatal. Lee Martin died at Grant Medical Center on July 5.

"It’s hard to believe anybody could do that, let alone somebody that’s supposed to love him," Wiget said.

The police report lists the person of interest in this case as a family member, who has long been homeless and has a criminal record dating back decades.

"They all think he had something to do with it," John Martin said. "Do I put it past him? I don’t put anything past anybody, you know. Anybody’s capable of doing something."

Columbus police would not discuss the details of the investigation but did say the case would be treated as any other homicide and that officers would seek justice for the victim's family.

But the family is upset with how the case has progressed.

The case was only turned over to a homicide detective this week. Police say that is because the coroner's report, which declares the death a homicide, was only finished this week.

For now, there have been no arrests, so the killer is still out there.

"I just want justice done for him. Somebody needs to pay for this, they really do," Wiget said. "He’s one person. If they did this to a little, old man, who else are they going to do this to?"
