From Local Sources
JASPER — A call to police Saturday morning reporting an unwelcome man inside a residence led to an arrest.
The complainant in the 6:17 a.m. call said the man was yelling, belligerent and hostile, plus he was refusing to leave.
Police say the man, James R. Honeycutt, 36, Plainfield, stepped outside and refused to comply with requests when officers arrived. Police allege he was hostile and confrontational with police, began jumping up and down and stated he wanted to fight.
Honeycutt allegedly turned and ran toward police while not complying with orders to stop. Police took Honeycutt into custody with the aid of a Taser stun gun.
Police said Honeycutt was found to be in possession of a syringe. After being treated at the scene by Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, he was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:09 p.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of unlawful possession of a syringe and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office also assisted.
