Two Zanesville Police Officers were hurt early Wednesday morning investigating an incident at a local convenience store. Lt. Bill Shaw says just after 12:30 officers were called to Dairy Mart on Pine Street and found a partially clothed man acting strangely. Shaw says Chad Abbott of Zanesville was not wearing a shirt and was screaming and acting delusional. Shaw says two officers were hurt trying to subdue and arrest the man. Both officers were treated and released at the hospital. Abbott will answer charges of disorder conduct and resisting arrest in Zanesville Municipal Court.
