Chillicothe Police Department responds to call of man with a machete

Chillicothe Missouri Police Department

The Chillicothe Police Department responded to the 100 block of North Herriford Street on Friday in reference to a violation of a protection order.

Assistant Police Chief Rick Sampsel reports a 53-year-old Chillicothe resident was taken into custody, transported to the police department for processing, became uncooperative, had to be physically subdued, and calmed. Sampsel says the person was taken to Hedrick Medical Center to be examined for fit-for-confinement status, became uncooperative again, and had to be physically restrained by officers. The person was transported to and incarcerated at the Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail.

Online court information shows Ronald Gene Dryer was charged with a misdemeanor violation of an order of protection of an adult. His bond was set at $5,000 with conditions to not have contact with Jessica Dryer and Supervision Services. The court denied a request for bond change on Friday. A bond hearing for Dryer is scheduled in the Associate Division of Livingston County Circuit Court on April 1st.

In another matter, Chillicothe Police officers responded to the area behind the 100 block of Ryan Street on Friday to a report of a man with a machete chasing another man. Sampsel says officers stopped the 30-year-old suspect from Kansas City as he attempted to leave the scene, and he was taken into custody. The man was taken to the police department, processed, transported to the Daviess-DeKalb Regional Jail by city officers, and incarcerated.
