A Warren County grand jury has indicted Samuel Ronan, the former political candidate arrested on June 9 after a struggle with Springboro police that he streamed for Facebook Live.
Ronan, 28, of Springboro, is charged with obstructing official business, a fifth-degree felony; and failure to comply with an officer, and resisting arrest, first-degree misdemeanors.
Ronan remains free, pending his arraignment in the common pleas court on Aug. 3.
Locally, Ronan ran against Congressman Steve Chabot in the May Republican primary in the 1st District which includes Warren and Hamilton counties, and two years ago as a Democrat, he contested the election of state Rep. Scott Lipps.
Ronan also ran for Democratic National Committee chairman in 2017 and gained attention in appearances on CNN.
