On Thursday, an Ohio man was arrested in Dayton after being spotted on live television punching a Black news reporter (Sept. 2).
Benjamin Eugene Dagley was caught at a shopping center after being on the run for many days, according to a statement made by US Marshal Pete Elliott. “This violent fugitive attempted to flee his charges in Gulfport, but our task force members’ quick work resulted in a timely arrest,” Elliott said.
According to the statement, “task force members obtained information that Dagley was still driving in his white pickup with an Ohio license plate.”
“After observing him leaving a business in the shopping complex, task force members discovered the truck in the parking lot and apprehended him.”
MSNBC correspondent Shaquille Brewster was live-blogging Tropical Storm Ida on Monday (Aug. 30). Dagley arrived in his white pickup truck in the middle of his segment and sprinted towards Brewster and the rest of the TV crew.
Brewster stepped over to continue his weather broadcast, first ignoring the enraged man. Dagley, on the other hand, raced straight at the reporter, got in his face, and said, “Report accurately!”
Dagley faces two counts of assault, one count of disturbing the peace, and one count of breaching the emergency curfew. He could potentially be charged with violating his probation by going to Gulfport without permission.
After breaking into Cleveland Plating in 2017, Dagley pleaded guilty to vandalism, attempted assault, and causing panic. He allegedly broke into the company and poked holes in tanks containing hazardous chemicals such as sodium cyanide, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, yellow chromate, and ferrous chloride.
He was given a five-year probationary period and 30 days in jail. In addition, he was sentenced to pay the corporation a $5,000 fine and $10,000 in reparations.
