Criminal complaints filed in the Magistrate Court of Logan County document a call for West Virginia State Police to respond to a fight in the Switzer area of Logan County. From that response came three arrests and several others from outstanding warrants for the participants in the fight. Criminal complaints are accusations and are not an indication of guilt. Defendants are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
The officer arrived on the scene and was advised by the victim that there had been a verbal altercation that turned physical and he and his fiance were struck by several different people several different times. The officer noted he observed several marks on the victims and obtained photos.
Three of the participants in the fight had outstanding warrants for an incident that occurred in June 2013. The warrants accuse them of crimes related to breaking into a residence and taking a safe containing items valued at approximately $2,467. The three then took the safe and put it under the house where the fight took place.The safe was recovered, along with all the items belonging to the victim. The fight victim did not live in the house at the time of the burglary, but moved there later. He had been told by the three to keep a board over the entrance leading under the house.
The fight victim told officers Tre Daniel Dobbins, 19, of Wilkinson, was the person who initiated the verbal altercation and was one of the individuals who struck him. In addition, Dobbins is accused of breaking the windshield of the victim’s car after the fight was over. Dobbins is charged with destruction of property, assault and battery. His bond was set at $15,000.
Another warrant dated Nov. 1, 2013, charges Dobbins with computer harassment, saying he threatened to kill another victim on Facebook. The victim showed the officer the threat, which threatened to kill the victim when he got off bond.
