The 21-year-old Columbus man who got into a shootout with Columbus Division of Police officers last Friday during a bizarre incident on I-71 in Delaware County will be arraigned this afternoon.
The Delaware County Prosecutor's Office charged Jonathon Sirvelle Wilder Myers charged with attempted aggravated murder. The video arraignment is scheduled for 1 p.m.
