Archbold Man Gets Prison Sentence

Bobby A. Rodriguez, 20, Archbold, has been sentenced to 10 months in prison on a charge of attempted trespass.

The sentence stems from an Oct. 26, 2015, incident, in which Rodriguez broke into the residence of his ex-girlfriend in Elmira.

He broke a window in a door to unlock the door.

Tracy Zuver, chief deputy of the Fulton County Sheriff Department, said at the time a sheriff deputy was called to the scene.

When the deputy arrived and confronted Rodriguez, Rodriguez reportedly grabbed a piece of broken glass and held it to his throat, threatening to commit suicide.

The deputy used his Taser stun gun to subdue Rodriguez. After the Taser applied a five-second electric shock to Rodriguez, Zuver said Rodriguez was “100% complaint” with the deputy’s requests.

Rodriguez was indicted by a Fulton County Grand Jury on Nov. 16, 2015, on a single count of trespassing in a habitation when a person is present or likely to be present.

He entered a guilty plea in January to an amended charge of attempted trespass.

As of Monday morning, he was still being held at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, where he has been since his arrest.
