A Hocking County man was arrested after allegedly threatening multiple people at the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said Reuben Gillian, 30, of Amanda, called 911 on Monday around 3:30 p.m. and was allegedly making threats against a former deputy and wanted to know where he lived and where he currently works.

Deputies said the calls continued when the information was not provided, and he allegedly started making threats toward 911 operators as well as threatening to arrive at the office and shoot deputies.

A tip told deputies Gillian was at Hayden Place Apartments.

When deputies arrived, they attempted to put handcuffs on him, but he allegedly pulled away and made threats of killing the deputy and other responding deputies.

Deputies also said he kept trying to smash his head against the protective barrier in a police cruiser and he repeatedly tried to kick the side and rear windows in an attempt to break them out.

Gillian was transported to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
Gillian was charged with six misdemeanor counts of misuse of 911, criminal mischief, obstructing official business, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and telecommunications harassment.
