Arrest follows woman’s distress callApril 15, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Police placed a woman under arrest after answering a report Saturday of a woman in distress.
The Jasper Police Department was dispatched to the 300 block of Reyling Drive at 4 p.m. after a report of a woman in distress in front of an address there. Police say Angela R. Beier, 47, 560 Charlotte Ave., Jasper, stated she needed the police and there were guns involved.
Officers made contact with Beier who advised she was having an argument with her ex-husband. She allegedly stated she was getting ready too leave since he would not talk to her but she wanted police to check her sobriety level first.
Police say a portable breath test placed Beier’s blood alcohol content at .225 percent.
Throughout the entire conversation with police, despite being asked to remain calm and stop yelling, Beier allegedly continued to yell expletives from the street to the house in addition to “flipping off” her ex-husband who was standing on the porch.
Due to the continued yelling, police said, multiple neighbors came out of their house to see what was occurring. Passerby on the street also stopped to observe the interaction, police said.
Police arrested Beier on preliminary misdemeanor counts of public intoxication and disorderly conduct as a result, they said, of her continued breach of the peace before and after being asked to stop.
Authorities booked Beier into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:06 p.m. She posted bond Sunday morning.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office also assisted.
