“There was an incident involving members of my family, in which emotion and circumstance got the better of all involved. I expect the authorities will fully investigate the matter, take appropriate action and that justice will be even handed. At times, family members may disappoint you. Their behavior may be unacceptable, and they must be held accountable. But, they are your family, and you love them,” Mayor Ginther said in the statement.
Jeffrey Ginther posted bond late Saturday afternoon and was released, according to Franklin County Jail records.
