Greene County Municipal Court

After a three-day trial and 90 minutes of deliberation, an eight-person Greene County jury delivered a verdict of not guilty for Yellow Springs Police Sergeant Naomi Penrod, who was accused of assaulting a resident last November.

Penrod was facing three misdemeanor charges including interfering with civil rights, assault and disorderly conduct stemming from an incident when she was caught on tape knocking a camera out of the hand of Athena Fannin.

Penrod was serving an eviction notice at Fannin's Allen Street residence, when Fannin began to videotape the sergeant.

On Wednesday in Municipal Court, 22-year-old Cody Buffenbarger of Springboro was charged by the Greene County Prosecutor’s office with falsification, which is a first degree misdemeanor in connection with an incident in late June at the Glen Helen Nature Preserve.
