From Local Sources
PETERSBURG — A Jasper man was arrested on a Pike County warrant last week stemming from an incident in Petersburg.
The Petersburg Police Department responded the night of Saturday, June 13, to an incident involving control of a vehicle that resulted in a Jasper woman being left at a Petersburg gas station after Jordon T. Earls, 35, 550 Kirkwood Drive, Jasper, drove away, according to arrest documents.
Police who learned Earls had a suspended license located him and the car at a Petersburg address. A passenger in the vehicle claimed she had been held against her will in the car by Earls, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Officers who had noted the strong odor of marijuana inside the car reported finding marijuana in the vehicle. The car was released to its rightful owner who did not want to pursue charges for unauthorized control of a vehicle, according to an affidavit.
Earls was transported for treatment after allegedly ingesting drugs, according to court documents. He was formally charged June 16 in Pike Circuit Court with Level 6 felony confinement and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and driving while suspended (prior). A warrant was issued at that time.
The Pike County Sheriff’s Office reports Earls was arrested on the warrant June 22. A cash bond was entered in the clerk’s office. His initial hearing is scheduled for July 22.
