Steven Hardbarger, 45, of Logan, barricaded himself inside a residence on July 30 as law enforcement officials responded to a domestic violence call at the home, according to a news release from Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost. During the standoff, Hardbarger allegedly fired at officers before being taken into custody.
A bullet grazed a deputy in the hip, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries. A Logan police K-9 named Rambo, who was sitting in the back of a police cruiser, was shot in the head. Rambo survived after being life-flighted to Ohio State University’s Veterinary Medical Center. In all, Hardbarger fired more than 150 rounds during the incident, according to law enforcement.
A Hocking County grand jury indicted Hardburger on the following counts:
- One felony count of kidnapping
- One felony count of attempted aggravated murder
- 15 counts of felonious assault
- One felony count of assaulting a police dog
- One felony count of discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises
- Two felony counts of vandalism
- One misdemeanor count of domestic violence
Several of the charges also carry additional firearm specifications, the news release said. Hardburger is being held at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail without bail. A preliminary hearing is expected next week.
