Man arrested 3 times in 1 day
VIENNA – A Vienna man was arrested three times and bonded out twice on Tuesday, officials said.
Gregory Allen Horner, 31, of Vienna was arrested three separate times for various activities throughout the day on Tuesday, said Vienna Police Chief George Young.
Horner was arrested on a charge of felony forgery of a prescription, then released, then arrested on a charge of domestic violence, then released, and finally arrested for violation of a domestic violence protection order charge, Young said.
“He was arraigned three different times,” said Young on Tuesday evening. “He made bail twice, and was arrested again. It just shows the state of our legal system,” he said.
Horner was arrested for the first time at approximately 11 a.m. at Rite Aid, 2300 Grand Central Ave., said Young. He was arrested for allegedly passing a fake prescription for Xanax made out in his own name on Monday, Young said.
While officers were investigating the Monday prescription, Horner showed up at the pharmacy to allegedly fill a second fake Xanax prescription, Young said. Horner was arrested on one charge of felony forgery of a prescription, Young said.
He was arraigned during the lunch hour, and Wood County Magistrate Brenda Marshall set his bond on the charge of forgery of a prescription at $2,000. Horner made bond and was released.
At 2:22 p.m., police were summoned to Horner’s residence at 3702 11th Ave., Vienna, to a domestic situation, Young said. Horner allegedly struck his wife in the face and dragged her on the pavement, Young said.
Horner was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor domestic battery and arraigned before Marshall for a second time. She set his bond at $500, and Horner was released after making the bond.
Horner’s wife obtained a domestic violence protective order on Tuesday afternoon from Wood County Magistrate Court, Young said. Horner was advised that he was permitted no contact with his wife and not allowed to be at her residence, Young said.
At 5:17 p.m., Vienna Police were dispatched to Horner’s residence because Horner allegedly violated the protective order, Young said. Horner attempted to make contact with his wife, Young said.
When police arrived, they discovered Horner hiding under the front porch of his 11th Avenue residence, Young said.
Horner was arrested on one charge of a misdemeanor violation of a domestic violence emergency protective order, Young said.
Horner appeared before Marshall for a third time for arraignment shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Horner claimed he was unaware that he was not permitted to go to his residence during his arraignment.
“What part of no contact don’t you understand?” Marshall said to Horner during his arraignment.
“I understand it,” Horner said.
“You obviously don’t. This is the third time I’ve seen you today,” Marshall said.
Horner was placed in jail for a mandatory 10 days for violating the protective order, Young said. He was transported to North Central Regional Jail on Tuesday evening. He was also given a $2,000 bond for the charge, but since the jail time is mandatory, was not given the opportunity to post bail for a third time in less than 12 hours.
