Chillicothe, OH – May 7, 2024 – A disturbance at the Speedway gas station located at 10 N Bridge Street led to the arrest of Andrew J. Mccutcheon on charges of assault, resisting arrest, and criminal trespass.

According to the initial and supplemental reports provided by Officer Justin Tuttle, dispatched to the scene, the incident unfolded when Mccutcheon allegedly punched the gas station cashier, Brittany D.

Mccutcheon allegedly exhibited aggressive behavior towards Officer Tuttle, leading to a physical altercation during the arrest. Despite Mccutcheon’s resistance, Officer Tuttle successfully detained him and placed him under arrest.

Mccutcheon was subsequently transported to the Ross County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of bond pending his initial court appearance scheduled for May 7, 2024, at 9:00 AM in the Chillicothe Municipal Court. Brittany D. Estep, the victim, did not sustain any visible injuries during the altercation.

Mccutcheon’s alleged actions resulted in multiple charges, including assault, resisting arrest, and criminal trespass. The incident underscores the swift response of law enforcement officers in maintaining public safety and apprehending individuals involved in criminal activities.
