Akron police officer accused of stalking, threatening ex-girlfriend
An Akron police officer is accused of stalking and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend.
Sgt. Eric J. Paull, 44, is charged with assault and menacing by stalking, both first-degree misdemeanors that carry maximum penalties of 180 days in jail. Paull is scheduled for arraignment Friday in Akron Municipal Court.
Paull's attorney, Brian Pierce, declined comment until after the hearing. Paull was arrested about 6 p.m. Thursday. An Akron city prosecutor requested that a judge order Paull be jailed until his Friday hearing.
Paull's 29-year-old ex-girlfriend reported to police that Paull threatened to kill her and made constant threats through text messages, phone calls and Facebook messages between Nov. 25 and Thursday, according to court records.
He also is accused of following the woman and threatening the woman's current boyfriend.
This marks the second time Paull has faced criminal charges within the past two years. He was arrested in January 2014 on drunken-driving charges and eventually pleaded no contest to a lesser offense of having physical control of a car while intoxicated.
In that case, Paull crashed his car while driving on Interstate 76 in Akron. Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers tested Paull's blood-alcohol content at .093, slightly above the .08 legal limit.
Paull wasn't injured in the crash, court records say. He was sentenced to a Driver Intervention Program through Akron Municipal Court.
A program staff member wrote to a judge that Paull began drinking in September 2013 after his divorce but had curbed his drinking since his arrest.
Paull is an assistant lecturer at the University of Akron.
He's also the second Akron police officer charged in a criminal case within the past week. Rookie patrolman Adam Campbell, 28, was charged Monday in connection with a violent attack outside a Playhouse Square area hotel.
Campbell, who claimed he acted in self-defense, has been suspended without pay. Paull's current status with the Akron police department is not clear.
Should We Trust Police Officers?
Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

Cops Are Corrupt Akron PD
By Christopher R Rice
A former police captain has filed a federal lawsuit claiming he was framed for murder.
Douglas Prade, 67, was convicted in 1998 for the murder of his wife, Dr. Margo Prade.
Dr. Prade was found shot to death inside her van behind her medical office building in November 1997.
Her husband was given a life sentence but after serving fifteen years of that sentence he was released in January 2013 after an Akron judge exonerated him based on new DNA evidence.
He is now suing the City of Akron, numerous current and former police officers as well as expert witnesses as defendants claiming they framed him.
Prade's suit claims he was 'wrongfully convicted of her murder. And, in the ultimate irony, officers in the very police department that Douglas Prade had dedicated his career to serving, participated in framing him for a crime he did not commit. All the while, Dr. Prade's true killer remains at large.'
He claims it was 'misconduct by Mr. Prade's fellow officers and those working in concert with them that led to his wrongful conviction. That misconduct included but was not limited to witness manipulation, fabrication, destruction, and suppression of evidence, and perjury.'
The ruling to free him is being appealed by the Summit County Prosecutor's Office, which is awaiting a ruling from the Ninth District Court of Appeals.
The court could order a new trial at which the same people he is now suing could once again be called as witnesses.
