Heizer was one of four people arrested in the September 2016 shooting death of 16-year-old Ronnie Bowers. The Kettering Police Department later released him, but court documents show he is still under investigation for his involvement in Bowers’ death. Bowers died of a gunshot wound to the head. Three juveniles were charged in connection to the case.

Later in September, Heizer was indicted for felonious assault, related to a separate incident involving a baseball bat. The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said that in March of 2016, Heizer was stopped at the intersection of Wilmington and Woodman Drive in Kettering when he got out of his car and walked up to another car with a baseball bat in his hand, Heizer is accused of striking a 21-year-old man with the bat, causing him to suffer serious injuries. Heizer pleaded guilty to felonious assault in this case in January. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
