Marshall man charged after altercation at Eastwood Casey's store
A Marshall man has been charged with class D felony first-degree property damage after an altercation at Casey's General Store on East Eastwood Street Saturday afternoon, Jan. 30.
An employee at the store told police her ex-boyfriend, William H. Hostetter, 39, of Marshall, made contact with her while she was working at the store, according to the incident report. He purchased a bottle of beer and called her several names before leaving.
He returned to purchase another bottle and was refused service. The woman asked several times that the man leave, following her refusal of repeated requests that she sell him another bottle of beer.
Hostetter then threw items at the woman, tried to pull the phone cord from the wall when she moved to call police, threw items off the shelves and broke a window, according to the report.
The value of the property damaged exceeded $750, according to the probable cause statement.
Police located Hostetter and arrested him. He is being held on a bail of $4,000 cash or surety at the Saline County Justice Facility.
Hostetter has a criminal history that includes assault, felonious restraint, property damage and violation of a full order of protection.
He is scheduled for arraignment at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3 in the Division 6 courtroom.
