From Local Sources

HAYSVILLE — A call late Thursday night asking police to conduct a welfare check on an intoxicated male eventually resulted in an arrest.

A Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputy and Indiana State Police trooper responding to the 11:40 p.m. call southeast of Haysville made contact with Michael E. Goss, 59, 6272 Kellerville Road, Jasper.

Goss was deemed at that time to not be a threat to himself or others, however, after police left, he allegedly assaulted another male at the location.

Police returned and took Goss into custody.

Authorities booked Goss into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:31 a.m. today on a preliminary misdemeanor count of battery.
