Man Shot By Cops Gets Probation

Jan 10, 2014

A man shot by Columbus police officers in the Arena District in 2012 will serve five years probation for attempted felonious assault and failing to comply with an officer's order.

Prosecutors say 52-year-old Douglas Wiegand was a drunken-driving suspect who pulled up behind a police cruiser and later drove at the officers who got out to speak with him. The officers shot Wiegand and 30-year-old Heather Seavolt, who was an innocent bystander.
