JASPER — A man arrested early Friday after a domestic disturbance involving a firearm is facing 16 criminal counts.

Jasper Police Department officers who arrived to the sound of shots fired at apartments at 448 W. 43rd St. at about 4 a.m. alleged Maxwell J. Elliott, 18, 1120 Church Ave., Jasper, had fired a stolen 9mm Glock and had pointed it at people at the location, including a female who he confined before being taken into custody.

Multiple individuals had been present, including juveniles, police said. At one point, according to authorities, Elliott had attempted to flee on foot during his arrest after previously having been taken to the ground by a Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

After the investigation, Elliott was later charged in Dubois Circuit Court with four Level 3 felony counts of criminal confinement while armed with a deadly weapon, two Level 5 felony counts of criminal confinement, Level 5 felony criminal recklessness and intimidation (two counts), Level 6 felony criminal recklessness, possession of methamphetamine, theft of a firearm, dealing in a look-a-like substance and pointing a firearm at another (two counts) and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

During a court appearance Monday, Elliott’s bond was set at $10,000 cash only. He remains lodged in the Dubois County Security Center.
