FERDINAND — A Saturday evening report of a rolling domestic on I-64 ended in a crash and an arrest.
Police responding at 7:53 p.m. to westbound I-64 in Dubois County were told a crash had occurred at the Ferdinand exit.
Authorities learned the incident involving Isiah C. Stokes, 23, 140 W. State Road 64, Birdseye, began with a child exchange in Birdseye that allegedly turned physical before the parties left that scene in vehicles. Witnesses to the I-64 incident told police a vehicle driven by Stokes was driving recklessly, at one point attempting to cut off a female’s vehicle and brake-checking it.
Eventually, the woman, who had a child in the car, attempted to exit, could not get stopped and her vehicle collided with another vehicle. No injuries were reported.
After investigating, authorities booked Stokes into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:41 p.m. Saturday on preliminary charges of Level 5 felony domestic battery and battery with a deadly weapon, Level 6 felony neglect of a dependent and criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor reckless driving.
Indiana State Police were assisted by the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, the Ferdinand Police Department, the Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker.
