UPDATE – Young has now said that he will resign effective October 2nd.
(ONN) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine is calling on a Republican State Representative from the Akron suburb of Green to resign.
It comes a week after Representative Bob Young was arrested for allegedly violating a protection order that was issued during a separate arrest in July.
“These are some serious charges. It’s not a good situation, so I think he should resign,” the governor said.
34 Ohio House Republicans released a letter calling for Young to resign.
Police say Young was initially arrested for assaulting his wife, then arrested for calling someone who has a protection order against him.
