Charges Dismissed Associated With Bethany City Hall Incident

The City of Bethany has released a statement reporting charges have been dismissed against the man who came into Bethany City Hall Tuesday and began making repeated inquiries with the staff regarding parking regulations and parking availability. The statement says City Hall Staff members attempted to answer questions from the man, later identified as Travis Heinze, but staff members became uncomfortable as the conversation progressed. The police department was called as a security measure.

A Bethany Police Officer then questioned Mr. Heinze, who refused to identify himself. He was placed under a 24-hour investigative hold at the Harrison County Detention Center. He was charged with Disturbing the Peace and Second-Degree Harassment by the Harrison County Prosecutor. The charges were dismissed Thursday.
