Clinton Ginther Mugshot

A Craig man was arrested earlier this month, and jailed on multiple charges. 36-year-old Clinton David Ginther was charged with  first-degree burglary, third-degree assault, violation of bail bonds, violation of bail bond conditions, violation of a restraining order, and domestic violence. It had to do with a disturbance call at a home on Russell Street, and he wasn’t supposed to be there. An arrest affidavit says Ginther left the area, but police found him in an alley, and his eyes were closed. He had been sprayed in the face with some sort of self-defense spray, after a woman in the house found him hiding in the basement. There were also four restraining orders in place against Ginther. He is still in jail on $20,000 in total bonds. He has a court date today.
