Kevin Gase, 39, of the 1600 block of Napoleon St., told his mother over the phone that he planned to go to Toledo and shoot his boss because his boss hadn’t been paying him, according to a Fremont police report. He also said he wanted police to kill him, the report said.
Gase’s mother and a suicide hotline counselor both called Fremont police after their conversations with Gase. Officers went to his home at about 8 p.m., and after a few minutes of knocking he opened the door.
He screamed for officers to leave his home, then became physical with them, shoving one officer and striking another until they used a Taser to gain control of him and place him in handcuffs, the report said.
Once handcuffed he let paramedics evaluate him, and he was then taken to the Sandusky County jail. He was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing official business, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer.
