From Local Sources
ST. HENRY — Police took a man into custody Tuesday afternoon, accusing him of battery on law enforcement, resisting law enforcement and criminal mischief.
Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputies and a Ferdinand Police Department officer responded to assist on a call about a man with a cut to his hand in the St. Henry area at 4:11 p.m.
Authorities allege the man, Branden M. Kelley, 26, 9804 S. 100W, Ferdinand, had damaged a garage door and an outdoor property light in that area.
After taking Kelley to his residence, authorities allege, a confrontation took place and Kelley became agitated with officers and would not listen to verbal commands. Police say he pulled away when being detained and, after being handcuffed, wrestled with and kicked at officers, striking a deputy.
Authorities booked Kelley into the Dubois County Security Center at 6:07 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of battery on law enforcement and preliminary misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and criminal mischief.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and the St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders assisted.
