From Local Sources
JASPER — Police accused a man of public intoxication (drugs) and resisting law enforcement after responding to a suspicious person report Friday night.
Jasper Police Department officers were dispatched to the Meridian Meadows area off Meridian Road, south of Second Avenue/State Road 164, at 8:05 p.m. A complainant reported a male screaming and going into people’s garages, according to authorities.
Arriving officers were flagged down by a resident on Pine Meadow Court, in the Meridian Meadows subdivision, who pointed to a man laying in a front yard.
The man, Lucas A. Wininger, 20, 1111 Terrace Ave., allegedly ran toward officers. He was taken into custody after being subdued with the aid of a Taser stun gun, according to police.
Wininger was taken to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for medical clearance. While there, his pupils were reported as extremely dilated and he was reported as being largely non-responsive to questions, although he allegedly stated he had consumed magic mushrooms. Police said he tested positive for having used marijuana.
Authorities booked Wininger into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:14 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of public intoxication (drugs) and resisting law enforcement.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
