DAYTON OH June 3 2012
A 57-year-old man who has been arrested nearly 200 times in Dayton was arrested Thursday night, a day after being released from jail.
Clayton J. Peck was returned to the Montgomery County Jail after he was arrested around 10 p.m. for allegedly panhandling at the North Main Street exit ramp for Interstate 75, according to Dayton police records.
Police said Peck was holding up a sign that stated, “Homeless, anything will help, God bless,” and approaching motorists who were stopped at the light.
The arresting officer noted in the report that Peck has been arrested 197 times by Dayton police, including nine under two false social security numbers.
Dayton Municipal Court records show there are 386 criminal cases against Peck dating back to 1996, a court official said.
Dayton municipal law prohibits panhandling using a sign or without a license.
