DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A man accused of causing the evacuation of two buildings at Ohio’s largest military base has pleaded guilty in a deal that dismissed several of the charges against him.
Edward Novak entered guilty pleas Thursday in federal court in Dayton to charges of trespass, driving under the influence and disorderly conduct.
Other charges including assault, making false alarms and fleeing a police officer were dropped.
Messages were left for Novak’s public defender seeking comment.
