Hermitage fisherman charged with cheating also faces stalking, harassment charges
A Hermitage man awaiting trial in Cleveland for allegedly cheating in a fishing tournament is also charged with stalking and harassing a woman.
The new charges were filed in Mercer County against 35-year-old Chase Cominsky, who along with an Ohio man are scheduled to appear in Cuyahoga County Court later this month on charges that include cheating and attempted grand theft for allegedly using lead weights in what they hoped would be a prize-winning catch in a fishing tournament.
According to a complaint filed by Jefferson Township Police, Cominsky’s estranged wife reported that after picking up one of her children at school, Cominsky followed her car so closely in his truck that if she would have applied the brakes, they would have collided.
The woman told police that after Cominsky followed her into a driveway, she remained in her car until police arrived.
The complaint alleges that Cominsky sent her screenshots of messages from her Snapchat account. The woman told police she doesn’t know how Cominsky gained access to her Snapchat.
Cominsky, who is charged with stalking and harassment, faces a court hearing on November 17 and is free on $5,000 bond.
