Welfare check results in arrestJune 8, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — A welfare check early today resulted in a man’s arrest on multiple preliminary charges.
The Jasper Police Department responded to the 12:39 a.m. report of a shirtless male yelling in the parking lot at 227 Northwood Avenue. A caller later reported hearing sounds like gunshots.
Officers arrived, encountered Jordan T. Jones, 32, 612 N. Washington St., Huntingburg, in the apartment complex’s rear parking lot and reported giving him multiple verbal commands to show his hands.
Police who said Jones repeatedly refused to comply ultimately deployed a Taser stun gun to get Jones into custody. Emergency medical services came to the scene and, during the incident, Jones allegedly spit in an officer’s face.
The loud noises that sounded like gunshots were later thought to be the sound of Jones punching one or more vehicles, according to authorities.
Jones was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 4:30 a.m. on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony battery on law enforcement and misdemeanor public intoxication, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and resisting law enforcement.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
