Ohio lawmaker indicted on domestic violence charge reportedly has no plans to resign

A grand jury indicted Ohio state Rep. Bob Young on domestic violence and assault charges Tuesday — but he has no plans to resign.

After a fundraising party earlier this month, the Republican lawmaker punched his wife in the face and threw her cellphone into a pool to prevent her from calling 911, according to a Summit County Sheriff’s report. His young daughter witnessed the incident.

According to the report, Young’s wife then sought “safe haven” at Young’s brother’s home after the alleged assault. The youth followed him and tried to enter his brother’s house without permission. When the brother tried to stop him from entering, Young charged at him, and fell through the glass door during the struggle, the report said.

Republican Ohio State Representative Bob Young has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of domestic violence and assault.

Neither Young nor his attorney returned messages seeking comment. According to court documents, he is subject to several orders of protection, meaning he cannot be near or contact his wife or her brother.

In an emailed statement, Young asserted that he loves his family but that his “life has been very stressful lately.”

“My behavior, while not criminal, was inappropriate and unethical. I apologize to everyone involved.” Young said in a statement after the corruption allegations.
