Police accuse man of intimidation, firearms offense

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — A call to police Sunday afternoon about a shot fired has landed a Huntingburg man in jail.


The Huntingburg Police Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to the vicinity of Ninth and Clay streets after a 2:42 p.m. report that a shot had been fired.

Police arrived to confront suspect Terry W. Kendall, 68, 210 Northview Drive, and ask him to show his hands.

It was alleged that Kendall and another man had argued and Kendall had shot at a house.

Kendall was not holding a gun when police arrived — it was recovered from a vehicle — but he was reported to have been screaming when he came toward officers.

Police allege Kendall resisted the officers who took him into custody with the aid of a stun gun. Police then called Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services to the scene.

Authorities booked Kendall into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:05 a.m. Tuesday on preliminary charges that included a Level 5 felony count of intimidation, a Level 6 felony count of pointing a firearm and misdemeanor counts of criminal recklesness, resisting law enforcement, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
