BLUE ASH, Ohio - A man appeared before a judge Saturday after being charged with ramming two police vehicles during a drug investigation in Blue Ash.
The Blue Ash Police Department was conducting a drug trafficking investigation on Hunt Road near Plainfield Road Friday when the suspect, Kemual Davis Spivery, 19, rammed a police cruiser, according to a press release.
Court records state Spivery sold heroin and during the arrest rammed his vehicle into one police cruiser at a high rate of speed. In an attempt to flee, police say Spivery then struck a second city vehicle while the officer was getting out.
Spivery, who resides in Northside, was charged with two felony counts of trafficking in heroin, three counts of felonious assault on a police officers, a felony count of possession of heroin and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
Defense attorney Peter Rosenwald asked for a reasonable bond during Spivery's arraignment.
"This happened in a parking lot. I have my suspicions as to whether or not there was a high rate of speed," Rosenwald said. "From what I understand, it was police officers closing in on him as he was pulling out of a parking space in that lot. So I'm asking the court to take that into consideration. I think the facts are not as egregious as the complaint indicates."
Judge Russell Mock set bond at $105,000 for the drug and assault charges.
Spivery is incarcerated at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
