Arrest follows driving offense no-show

From Local Sources

JASPER — A Greene County man who failed to appear for court dates regarding a misdemeanor driving offense was brought to jail Wednesday after the no-shows.

Jeffery T. Wilson, 32, Lyons, was charged with misdemeanor driving while suspended on July 4, 2017, after a Ferdinand Police Department officer stopped the 2002 Ford Mustang he was driving on South Industrial Park Road north of Third Street. He received a citation along with a summons for driving while suspended (prior).

Court records indicate Wilson failed to appear in court for an initial hearing twice before an arrest warrant was issued Aug. 31, 2017. The warrant was reissued in March 2018 and, on Monday, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department brought Wilson to Dubois County on the active warrant.

Authorities booked Wilson into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:10 a.m. on the active warrant. He appeared in court and then posted a $200 bond at 2 p.m.
