Craig Beach police chief placed on leave following arrest

CRAIG BEACH: Arrested Dec. 7 - Andrew Soloman, 36, charged with dereliction of duty

CRAIG BEACH, Ohio (WYTV) – Craig Beach Police Chief Andrew Soloman has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

Craig Beach Village Council met for the first time since he was arrested last week.

However, council did not discuss plans on hiring a new chief.

Instead of showing up for his arraignment on Monday, Soloman pleaded not guilty to a charge of dereliction of duty via a letter written by his lawyer.

Soloman is out on $1,000 bond.
