Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP.

Back in 2018, Weaver pleaded guilty to battery in a 2017 incident where he shot a man in the leg during a confrontation at the McDonalds on Bluffton Road.

Online court records show an Allen County Judge sentenced him to three years to be served in the Allen County Work Release and the home detention program.
