Alan Schneider, the owner of Bayside Marina, continues to find himself in legal trouble. His latest arrest happened last Thursday in Kingston.

According to the arrest report, Schneider struck a car on Gallaher Road.

“He then continued southbound on Gallaher Road in the turn lane, passing vehicles in a reckless manner,” the report said. “He traveled onto I-40 westbound and exited at the 352 and was finally stopped on Kingwood Street by Sgt. Jamie Melton.”

During the investigation, police learned that Schneider’s Arizona driver’s license was suspended, according to the re-

He was charged with driving on a suspended license, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.     

Schneider was arrested for aggravated assault in April. He allegedly pulled a gun on some people at the marina.

Schneider was arrested and charged with two counts of reckless endangerment in July. He allegedly used an excavator to move a trailer at the marina while a woman was still inside.

The report said the woman “had a visibly swollen ankle after having to jump from the trailer.”

The aggravated assault and reckless endangerment charges are still pending, according to court records.


Jessie Schweitzer told Kingston police he was trying to help a woman flee harm’s way.

Instead, he allegedly ended up getting harmed by the woman he was trying to help and two other men.

“He stated that a Caitlin Jago had sent him a text and stated that her husband had been hitting her and keeping her at home against her will,” the report said.

Schweitzer agreed to go get the woman from an apart-
ment complex on Third Street and take her to a safe place,
according to the Sept. 14 report.

“Upon arrival, she came out of the apartment and had a small bag in her hand and
told him there was a suitcase
inside the apartment and could he get it for her,” the report said.

Schweitzer went inside and two men came out of a bedroom and attacked him, according to the report.

“Then Caitlin jumped on his back and started hitting him,” the report said.

“One of the men pulled Jessie’s wallet out and took $160 in cash.”

The two men were identified as Brian Bolton and Nathan Jago. Warrants for robbery and assault were taken out in the case.

Bolton, 25, Caitlin Jago, 20, and Nathan Jago, 25, were arrested last Wednesday.   


Rockwood police responded to the Sonic Drive-In on North Gateway Avenue earlier this month in reference to a man and woman doing drugs in the bathroom.

When police arrived, they spoke to April Leeann Seiber and Andrew Jackson Ander-son.

According to the report, Seiber was placed under arrest af-
ter dispatch advised she had
two violation of probation warrants.

“I then spoke with Mr. Anderson and asked him if there was anything illegal in the vehicle,” the report said.

Anderson, according to the report, told police there was a needle under the passenger seat.

“I asked Mr. Anderson what was in the needle, and he advised me that he and Ms. Seiber crushed up a Roxicodone and injected it while they were in the bathroom,” the report said.

Anderson and Seiber were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. The report said three children belonging to Seiber were in the vehicle.

“Mr. Anderson’s parents came and picked up the juveniles with Ms. Seiber’s permission,” the report said.
