An Illinios man landed in the Dubois County Security Center over the weekend after he first crashed his motorbike near a north side Jasper intersection, attempted to leave the scene and then eventually got into a physical altercation with authorities all the while being under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Jasper Police say around a quarter after 5 Saturday afternoon 41-year old Nathan Jones of Herring crashed his motorcycle along Newton Street just south of Schuetter Road. Police also say Jones tried to leave the area on his bike.
Jasper Police say a trooper with the Indiana State Police who was off duty at the time arrived shortly after the crash and after he identified himself to Jones they say Jones still attempted to leave the area.
The trooper then took the keys out of the motorcycle and it was then Jones allegedly got off the bike and began to push the trooper.
Soon after the altercation, additional officers arrived on scene and Jones was soon placed under arrest.
Jones admitted to authorities that he had been drinking prior to the accident. Police say his blood alcohol content measured at .13 percent. They also say he tested positive for THC.
Police also found out that Jones did not have a valid drivers license.
He was taken to and booked into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary charges of battery on law enforcement, resisting law enforcement, driving while suspended and operating while intoxicated.
The Jasper Police Department were assisted at the scene by the Indiana State Police.
