FINDLAY, Ohio. (AP) - Police were searching for a suspect in the shooting of a state trooper during a traffic stop in northwest Ohio.

Trooper Josef Brobst had pulled over a vehicle for speeding on I-75 near Findlay around 1:30 a.m. Thursday when the suspect scuffled with Brobst, grabbed the trooper’s gun and shot him, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office said.

The trooper was taken to a hospital and his injuries were not considered life-threatening, the highway patrol said.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Josef Brobst was shot near Findlay on Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Police were seeking 42-year-old Robert Tramaine Hathorn. He was driving a black 2016 Chevrolet Suburban with Michigan license plate C7482198.

Michigan Department of Corrections records show Hathorn was discharged from prison in April after serving several years for drug crimes and resisting, obstructing or assaulting police in Muskegon County.

Records show he has been in and out of prison since around 2000 for additional drug crimes, assault with a dangerous weapon and failure to register as a sex offender. They include a witness tampering charge from Washtenaw County.

Civilian Conservation Corps Highway.jpg
Civilian Conservation Corps built this highway, south of Jelloway in Knox County. It was funded by the Works Progress Administration in Ohio ca. 1930-1939.

Since 1917, various members of the Ohio legislature had introduced bills to create a statewide police force. Many people, especially members of labor unions, opposed these bills, fearing that the Ohio government would use this police force to end strikes. Finally, in 1933, the Ohio government created this statewide police force, which is known as the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHO). The legislation creating the OSHP limited the patrolmen to enforcing motor vehicle laws on Ohio’s roads. A provision of the bill explicitly banned the OSHP from policing strikes and other forms of labor unrest.

Initially, the Patrol consisted of sixty officers. The officers had to be between twenty-four and forty years of age. More than five thousand men applied to be one of the first sixty officers. The OSHP established six district offices across Ohio, with three substations in each district. The district offices were in Toledo, Ravenna, Sidney, Delaware, Cambridge, and Chillicothe, while the substations were located in private homes across the district. The first patrol officers rode motorcycles, including in the dead of winter, to enforce the law.

During its first year of existence, the OSHP accomplished much. First, the Patrol succeeded in creating a statewide radio network, allowing law enforcement officials to communicate with each other across Ohio. For the time, it was the most comprehensive radio system in the United States. The OSHP also cited more than 120,000 drivers and made 4,233 arrests.

In response to the Patrol's early success, the Ohio legislature increased the number of patrolmen to 120 in 1935. In 1941, the Ohio legislature authorized three hundred patrolmen. That same year, the OSHP began to patrol additional routes besides state highways. The OSHP now had responsibility over all Ohio roadways except for those in municipalities. At this time, the Patrol also became responsible for all driving tests, which a new driver had to take to prove that he or she was competent to drive a motor vehicle. To assist patrolmen in enforcing traffic laws as well as to assist officers in searches for missing persons, the Patrol began to use airplanes in 1948. In 1950, the OSHP also began to patrol Lake Erie and other waterways.

Since the mid-twentieth century, the OSHP has continued to expand in size and in responsibilities. In 1968, the Ohio General Assembly removed any limitations on the maximum number of OSHP patrolmen. Rather, the General Assembly established a new requirement that the the Patrol should have at least 880 officers. During the last decades of the twentieth century, the OSHP also became an important agency in stopping the illegal drug trade. The main goals of the OSHP throughout the last half of the twentieth century and the first years of the twenty-first century, however, continued to be the enforcement of traffic laws on Ohio’s roadways and to ensure that Ohio’s drivers were safe and qualified to drive motor vehicles.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is a division of the Ohio Department of Public Safety and has the primary responsibility of traffic enforcement in the state of Ohio.


Operationally, the Patrol is divided into units whose varying tasks complement the mission of the Patrol to provide safe roadways throughout the state. Operational units include the Office of Field Operations, units specializing in Aviation, a Special Response Team, Crash reconstruction, Inspections, Mobile Field Force, and Criminal Patrol; Human Resource Management, includes Labor Relations, Career Development and the Administrative Investigation Unit; Office of Investigative Services, includes statewide investigation of crimes occurring on state owned or leased property, crime lab, polygraph services, executive protection for the governor, criminal intelligence and computer crime unit; License and Commercial Standards, which provide for oversight of driver's license and commercial vehicle regulations throughout the state;[2]

The Patrol also has administrative offices which include the Offices of Technology and Communication Services, Finance and Logistics Services, Strategic Services and Recruitment and Training.[3]

The Patrol maintains 55 posts, each administered by one of ten districts and responsible for one, two, or three of Ohio's 88 counties or the Ohio Turnpike.[4] The Berea/Turnpike District operates from four posts on the Ohio Turnpike. Since the turnpike opened in 1955, the Ohio Turnpike Commission has contracted with the Ohio State Highway Patrol to provide law enforcement and assistance to disabled or stranded motorists. They are the only law enforcement agency with jurisdiction on the turnpike.[citation needed]

Enforcement activities[edit]

The Patrol divides the duties of road troopers between traffic enforcement and criminal patrol, with emphasis placed on apprehension of criminals using the state's highways, drug interdiction in particular. Arrests for illegal drugs exceeded 8,400 during the first three quarters of 2017, an increase of 10% over 2016. Recently the Patrol created a mission statement entitled "LifeStat 1.0", detailing the strategic goals for the Patrol.[5] One of the primary goals of this document was the reduction of traffic crash deaths in Ohio to one per 100 million vehicle miles traveled by the end of 2007;[6] the goal was ambitious: the rate reduced to 1.13 in 2007, 1.10 in 2008.[7] According to the Patrol, its 1,400 Troopers made over 1.4 million professional stops in 2006, with 60 percent being non-enforcement stops to help, assist or educate motorists. Twenty-five percent of enforcement-related stops in 2006 was for either aggressive driving or for an OVI offense. The Patrol arrested 26,187 drivers for OVI in 2006, and cited 133,650 drivers for aggressive driving.[8]

The Patrol has a strength of approximately 1,600 Troopers

Support staff[edit]

The OSHP maintains nearly 1,000 support personnel, including load limit inspectors, motor vehicle inspectors, motor carrier enforcement inspectors, dispatchers, electronics technicians, and civilian specialists..


The Patrol also maintains an all-volunteer Auxiliary which was created during World War II to supplement staffing lost to the war effort.[9][10]

Police officers[edit]

The OSHP also maintains a force of State of Ohio Police Officers mostly located in the Columbus, Ohio area, who provide security police services to the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Ohio Expo Center and State Fairgrounds as well as perform security police functions at special events on state property.[11] State of Ohio Police Officers provide general police services and enforces appropriate laws, rules, regulations, and procedures at selected state facilities. Officers assist in the apprehension and arrest of criminal violators, conduct investigations of suspicious persons and incidents, and assist the public whenever needed. Preliminary qualifications include: United States citizen, Valid driver's license, 21 years of age or older, High school diploma or G.E.D., and OPOTA Certification.[12]


The Ohio State Highway Patrol was founded in 1933 under the command of Colonel Lynn Black. Originally, the Highway Patrol used solid black cars with the Flying Wheel on the door. In 1966, white cruisers made their appearance on the Ohio Turnpike. By 1972 all Ohio State Highway Patrol cruisers were white, which they remained until 1982 when they moved to sterling silver. The silver cars remained until 1991. In 1992, they moved to dark grey cruisers marked with the famous "flying wheel" insignia on the doors and a yellow stripe running the length of the car to make patrol cars more visible to motorists, in the hopes of avoiding trooper deaths related to accidents in Northern Ohio's strong winter storms. However, in 2002, the decision was made to transition the force back to white colored patrol vehicles with larger lightbars in response to a number of incidents where troopers were killed by inattentive motorists.[citation needed] Marked cruisers are once again silver in color. The emergency lighting system is now all blue with two red lights in the grille. The Patrol utilizes a variety of vehicles, including Dodge Chargers, Ford Explorers, and Chevrolet Tahoes. The OSHP remains to this day a highly respected organization, having gained CALEA accreditation. The state patrol made the first state wide radio.

As of 2019, Troopers carry the SIG Sauer P320 which replaced the SIG Sauer P226 DAO (Double-Action Only) in .40 S&W, which had been in service since the early 2000s. The pistol prior to the P226 was the Beretta 96 .40 S&W pistol which is a .40 caliber version of the Beretta 92.

In the line of duty[edit]

During the history of the Patrol, 41 Troopers have died in performance of their duties.[13]

The OSHP demographics are:[14]

  • Male: 91%
  • Female: 9%
  • White: 86%
  • African-American/Black: 11%
  • Hispanic: 3%


The Ohio State Highway Patrol Auxiliary

The Patrol Auxiliary was created in 1942 when many Troopers entered service with the United States military due to World War II. Originally, members of the Auxiliary were required to be members of the American Legion because they were previous war veterans who were unlikely to be drafted.[15]

Today, volunteer Auxiliary members ride on patrol with Troopers, assist at crash scenes, natural disasters and emergency sites, provide highway safety displays, and patrol the Ohio State Fair.[16]

I liked her new look myself. Sometimes she began to delay at work, for 15-20 minutes. Sometimes for 30 minutes, explaining the urgency of some documents. Began to visit corporate parties more often. And coming from there a little drunk, she first went to the bath.

Now discussing:

Then he starts to fuck me, then her, then in the ass, then in the pussy, then with his fingers, then with a. Dick. I'm finishing. A spasm goes through the body, I arch my back even more and feel the spreading cold in the lower abdomen.
