Police make residential entry arrest

From Local Sources

CELESTINE — Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputies accused a man of residential entry Saturday.

The deputies were called to do a welfare check east of Celestine at 4:25 p.m.


Two women they contacted at a cabin at the call location explained the injured male there, Joshua D. Davidson, 34, Louisville, Kentucky, was known to them but had become agitated and had been told to leave.

The women had gotten Davidson outside but later discovered him trying to re-gain entry through a sliding door. After reportedly warning Davidson, one of the women struck him in the head with a baseball bat.

Deputies located an injured Davidson on a bed in a basement bedroom. He was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for treatment before being booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:45 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of residential entry.

The Celestine Volunteer Fire Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
