Motorcycle wreck leads to altercation with policeSeptember 24, 2017
From Local Sources
JASPER — Officers with the Jasper Police Department were dispatched to the area of Newton Street just south of Schuetter Road on Saturday for a motorcycle crash that turned into a physical altercation.
Police report that after they arrived at the crash scene just after 5 p.m. they determined that Nathan S. Jones, 41, of Herring, Illinois, had wrecked his 1993 Kawasaki motorcycle and had allegedly attempted to leave the area on his bike.
An off-duty officer with the Indiana State Police arrived shortly after the crash and after the officer identified himself to Jones, police say Jones allegedly still attempted to leave the area.
The ISP trooper then took the keys out of the motorcycle at which point police say Jones allegedly stepped off the bike and began to push the trooper.
Soon after the altercation, additional officers arrived on scene and placed Jones into custody.
Police allege Jones admitted to drinking and tested with a BAC of .130. Police say he also tested for THC in his system.
Police also report that it was later found that Jones did not have a valid drivers license.
He was booked into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary charges of battery on law enforcement, resisting law enforcement, driving while suspended and operating while intoxicated.
The Jasper Police Department was assisted on the scene by the Indiana State Police and Ruxer's Wrecker Service.
