Felonious Assault on a Police Officer

            On September 25, 2019, Grandview Heights police officers were dispatched to 1381 Glenn Ave in Grandview Heights for a disturbance. Upon arrival, officers were advised that the suspect had an outstanding arrest warrant for a traffic offense. As the officers were attempting to have the suspect exit his residence in order to affect the arrest, the suspect kicked and broke glass from his front door out towards the officers standing on the porch. Pepper spray was deployed by at least one officer. The suspect produced a baseball bat that had been altered with screws and nails attached to the end. The suspect swung the bat at one of our officers, striking and breaking the officer’s hand. Furthermore, the officer sustained a puncture wound from the strike.

            The suspect was taken into custody without further incident. Grant A. Metters, 56, was arrested and charged with felonious assault on a police officer.
