Couple Faces OVI, Child Endangering Charges
One day after the man was accused of chauffering his 4-month-old child while on drugs, the woman faces the same charges
One day after Rostislav Ryazanskiy was charged with driving while on drugs and child endangering -- he is accused of chauffering his 4-month-old child while high on heroin -- his girlfriend was arrested on the same charges.
Police received a call about someone driving an orange Jeep erratically Monday evening in the area of Route 306 near the Route 2 exit in Mentor, Mentor Police Lt. Tom Powers said.
When police officers caught up with the Jeep at the Studio 6 hotel, they learned the driver was 28-year-old Ashley Korb.
Korb's boyfriend and the father of her 4-month-old child, Ryazanskiy, had been arrested Sunday. When police stopped him for driving erratically he had told them that he had taken heroin, Powers said.
At the time of his arrest, Korb had passed out. Paramedics took her to Lake West Medical Center where she recovered and was doing better.
Then, she was arrested for her driving. Once again, the infant was in the car with her, Powers said.
Police suspected Korb was on drugs so they asked her to take a blood test and she refused, Powers said.
Korb's been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, endangering children and driving under a suspension, as well as a felony count of drug abuse that stems from a previous incident.
She is scheduled to be arraigned today in Mentor Municipal Court.
Ryazanskiy also faces a new charge of wrongful entrustment because he allowed Korb to use his car even though she has a suspended license, Powers said.
The child is in the custody of Lake County Jobs and Family Services.
