Jasper police make intimidation arrest

From Local Sources


JASPER — The Jasper Police Department arrested a man Saturday and accused him of felony intimidation.

Police were dispatched to conduct a welfare check involving a possible domestic at 10:16 p.m.

An investigation led police to allege Billy R. Hill III, 37, of Jasper, who was located injured and intoxicated at the scene, had communicated a threat that rose to the level of felony intimidation.

Hill was taken from the scene by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for treatment. His blood alcohol content allegedly tested .264% at the hospital.

Authorities booked Hill into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:20 a.m. Sunday on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of intimidation. He posted bond early Monday.
