JASPER — A Friday night complaint about a man possibly involved in drug activity led to a chase, a stun gun deployment and an arrest.
The Jasper Police Department was called to the Circle A parking lot at 1402 Newton Street at 8:48 p.m. They had been told to look for a man wearing a blue tank top and jeans.
When officers arrived on the scene and made their presence known, the man fitting the description, Brian C. Kelly Jr., 31, 3611 Victory Drive, Jasper, fled on foot, according to police.
An officer deployed a Taser stun gun, incapacitating Kelley until he could be detained.
Police reported fining approximately 5 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Kelley's pockets.
Kelley was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for treatment and medical clearance before being booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:23 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
He posted bond early Saturday afternoon.
The Dubois County Sheriff's Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
