VAN WERT — The man killed by deputies Tuesday morning spent more than an hour on the phone with dispatchers, deputies and officers, threatening to ram authorities and even a school bus with the stolen semi truck cab if they didn’t back away from the pursuit.
“Tell Spencerville PD to back all this up, or I’ll (expletive) kill everyone out here,” the man on the call said. “I’m not kidding here. You’d better back off.”
The 911 calls were released to the media after requests from The Lima News.
