Miami Valley News

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WJW) — The U.S. Marshals arrested the Ohio man accused of assaulting NBC News reporter Shaquille Brewster during Hurricane Ida coverage while he was shopping at The Greene on Thursday.

Benjamin Dagley, 54, of Wooster, was wanted by the Gulfport Police Department for assault and the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department for a probation violation.

Dagley pulled up in his truck and confronted Brewster during a live report of the devastating storm in Gulfport, Mississippi Monday afternoon, police said. He’s charged with two counts of assault, one count of disturbance of the peace and one count of violation of emergency curfew.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Dagley was arrested in a shopping plaza on Greene Boulevard in Beavercreek Thursday afternoon after learning he was still driving the white pickup truck.

“Due to assistance provided by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, our task force members were able to track this fugitive from Mississippi to his arrest location in Dayton. This violent fugitive was attempting to flee from his charges in Gulfport but the swift work of our task force members resulted in a timely arrest,” U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said in a news release.
