The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office has apprehended 19-year-old Michael A. Bradshaw of Newark on multiple charges following a domestic incident.


Bradshaw faces two counts of second-degree harassment, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, one count of criminal obstruction of breathing, and one count of second-degree unlawful imprisonment. The arrest was made after deputies investigated a situation that reportedly unfolded in several townships within Wayne County.

Authorities allege that during a verbal dispute, Bradshaw forcibly took his girlfriend from her residence and held her at his own home against her will. Furthermore, allegations include Bradshaw choking the victim and physically throwing her around the room, raising serious concerns for the victim’s safety and well-being.

Following the arrest, Bradshaw was taken to the Wayne County Jail to await a CAP arraignment with a presiding judge. He is scheduled to appear in the Village of Newark Court at a future date for subsequent legal proceedings. The incident has prompted a judicial response to address the serious accusations leveled against Bradshaw.
