JASPER — A naked man arrested at a Jasper hotel Saturday added an additional charge of felony battery when he allegedly fought with officers while being booked into the jail.
On Saturday at 2:30 p.m., an officer with the Jasper Police Department was called to the Econo Lodge, 75 Indiana Street, on a report of a male subject running naked in the building.
Police said officers arrived and found Weston D. Rust, 25, 919 E. 15th St., naked in the hallway of the hotel.
Rust was taken into custody and transported to Memorial Hospital due to his level of impairment, according to police. The substance or substances causing his intoxication were not immediately available.
After being released from the hospital, officers transported Rust to the Dubois County Security Center. He was booked at 12:24 a.m. Sunday.
During that book-in, police said Rust fought with an officer and jail staff. He was quickly subdued, according to authorities.
During the confrontation, police said, Rust threw a punch and struck an officer in the chest.
Jasper police charged Rust with misdemeanor counts of public nudity and public indecency, plus a Level 6 felony count of battery on a law enforcement officer. The sheriff’s department said today that Rust will additionally be charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief for damage done to a jail cell.
