Man accused of felony intimidationJune 1, 2020
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Repeated calls regarding an ongoing incident Sunday night led to a man’s arrest.
Police were first called to the report of a domestic in progress in Huntingburg at 10:52 p.m. The Huntingburg Police Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office responded and, after separating the parties, determined there had been a mutual-combat incident after David A. Bates, 30, 707 E. Second St., Huntingburg, had allegedly grabbed a female’s hair during a gathering.
With no one wanting to press charges at that time, hosts told Bates, who was checked by Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, and his girlfriend that they were not wanted at the home any longer and police told him to not return.
Police were called back to the scene at 11:42 p.m. because Bates and his girlfriend were reported to have returned. Bates was at the property line making racial slurs when officers arrived, according to authorities.
Bates was told to leave and that, if he returned again, it would be trespassing and he would be arrested, police said.
At 1:42 a.m. today, police were notified that one of the original victims at the gathering had allegedly been threatened by Bates over the phone.
Police took Bates into custody at his home and, after securing a search warrant, found a handgun that had allegedly been involved in the threat incident.
Authorities booked Bates into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:49 a.m. on a preliminary Level 5 felony count of intimidation.
