Man Arrested After Early Morning After Gunshots Fired in Auglaize County

Posted on January 13, 2021

The Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office responded to an early morning report of gun fire in the county’s Clay Township.  

According to a release, the incident was reported at around 3:25 this morning.

A resident told investigators that a home security camera captured video of a neighbor coming onto his property and then leaving.  

Shortly after, multiple gun shots could be heard close by, coming from a wooded area.

When deputies arrived on scene, they could still hear the gun fire coming from a residence that sits inside a wooded lot.  

Deputies attempted contact with the homeowner and for unknown reasons, the male subject refused to come out or speak with deputies.  

Due to a weapon already being fired and further investigation into the residence and the  homeowner appearing to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol,  the Auglaize County Special Response Team responded to the scene and attempted to make contact with the male subject.  

After several hours, the male subject exited the residence and was placed under arrest.  

He has been identified as 39 yoa Scott E. Daisy, who was charged with Using a Weapon while Intoxicated.

He was transported to the Auglaize County Correctional Center.
