Michael R. Lyon, 47, was charged Monday in Mount Vernon Municipal Court with taking an animal out of season and eight counts of taking a second deer without a permit. According to the citations, the eight counts are in connection with Lyon’s possession of untagged deer antlers.

According to a report filed in municipal court from the Ohio Division of Wildlife, Lyon was arrested Nov. 13, at 11:50 p.m., after he was spotted shining lights out both sides of the vehicle while traveling on College Hill and Hostetler roads. Wildlife officers saw the activity from the division’s aircraft.

Lyon will be arraigned in municipal court on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.

Lyon was originally charged with using weapons while intoxicated, hunting with the aid of a vehicle and spotlighting with a firearm. A court trial continuance was granted Dec. 21 in that case. Trial is now scheduled for Feb. 6 at 9 a.m.
