DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A couple is behind bars and facing a list of charges following a fight.

Dennis White, 58, was arrested on charges of assault, menacing, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest. Jennifer Cowic, 33, was arrested on a theft warrant.

Officers were dispatched to an apartment in the 1100 block of Wayne Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday after Cowic’s son called police saying he feared for his mother’s life.

When police arrived on scene, they heard a loud argument between White and Cowic. When officers asked White to open the door, he initially refused. When White eventually opened the door, he became combative and tried to wrestle with one of the officers. Officers placed him in handcuffs and took him to Grandview Hospital before being booked into jail.

Officers found Cowic inside the apartment. She told officers that White advised her to hide in the closet while police were knocking on the door since she had a warrant out for her arrest.

Both were taken to the Montgomery County Jail. They’re expected to appear in court Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
