Steubenville police officer indicted on 41 charges

More than a dozen of the charges against Officer Nathan Cline are felonies

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTRF) - A Steubenville police officer has been indicted on 41 charges, 15 of which are felonies.

Officer Nathan Cline was given his summons on Friday regarding hunting on private property without permission.

In June 2016, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources made Steubenville officials aware of an investigation into Cline.

Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis says they weren't aware of the severity until Friday.

The City has now taken temporary action.

"Based on the indictments coming out Friday and the seriousness of the charges against our officer, he's been placed on administrative leave without pay. We are now in a position to conduct our own internal investigation. This appears to be a serious mistake and Cline will have to answer for it," said Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis. 

We reached out to ODNR, and they tell us Cline must proceed through the legal process in court before they step in.

We'll continue to keep you updated on this case.
