Jasper police make felony resisting arrestAugust 9, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Police took a Huntingburg man into custody Thursday after he initially failed to stop for a pursuing officer.
A Jasper Police Department officer attempted to stop a 1997 Ford Mustang driven by Trevor T. Weitkamp, 20, 411 N. Main St., Huntingburg, at 12:30 p.m. because the car was allegedly speeding on U.S. 231.
Police say Weitkamp failed to stop, continuing on U.S. 231 until he turned onto Indiana Street and then onto Second Street. Weitkamp ultimately stopped in a business lot in the 600 block of West Second Street where he was taken into custody.
Authorities booked Weitkamp into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:13 p.m. on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and misdemeanor reckless driving. He also received traffic citations for speeding, driving left of center and disregarding a stop sign.
Weitkamp post bond later Thursday afternoon.
