Ohio Man Arrested for Fire Station Attacks

September 27, 2011

The son of a former Toledo fire chief has been arrested in connection with a string of attacks at city fire stations.

The Blade newspaper reports that Kevin P. Wolever was taken into custody Saturday night. In a Sunday morning news conference, authorities had announced that he is expected to be charged with felonious assault and shooting into a habitat.

Wolever, a city fire inspector, is the son of former Toledo Fire Chief Mike Wolever, who retired July 1. A phone number listed for the former chief had been disconnected as of Sunday afternoon.

Toledo firehouses had been attacked five times this week, including gunshots outside of two stations and a burning package found outside of a third. Officials did not give a motive for the attacks.
