Officers arrest six and respond to accident

Officers recently made six criminal arrests, according to interim Sheriff Rob Bradley.

Three were the result of active arrest warrants being executed. They included Kayla Mains, 18, Osgood, theft, a Class D felony; Kenneth Lecher, 20, Batesville, probation violation – possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony; and Ashley Lunsford, 27, Versailles, probation violation – illegal possession of a syringe, a Class D felony.

On March 30, about 12:04 a.m., Deputy, Arron Smith initiated a traffic stop on a 2011 Chevrolet pickup truck at State Road 101 and Ellis Street, Milan, for a traffic violation. As he made contact with the driver, he observed signs of alcohol impairment and initiated an investigation resulting in the arrest of Wendy Rohrig, 48, Dillsboro, for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, a Class C misdemeanor.

About 6:34 p.m. that same day, Lt. Randy Holt and Holton town Marshal Bob Curl responded to a report of a domestic disturbance in Osgood. When officers arrived, they discovered that Daniel Hobbick, 43, Osgood, had been involved in a dispute with his girlfriend which resulted in him damaging two of the couple’s vehicles and firing off a shotgun in the residence during the altercation. Hobbick was arrested for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a Class D felony.

On March 31 about 1:20 a.m., Smith, Holt and Milan Deputy Marshal Terry Wilson responded to Indian Lakes RV Resort and Campground, Batesville, for a report of a domestic dispute involving a knife. Officers found that Mellissa Bowling, 44, Batesville, in a state of intoxication, making threats against her husband while armed with a knife. Bowling was arrested for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, a Class D felony.

Rohrig, Hobbick and Bowling were transported to the Ripley County Jail and incarcerated, pending bond.

In addition, officers responded to a serious accident March 31. Around 6:30 p.m., Holt and Osgood Deputy Marshal Adam Hunger responded to Napoleon for a report of a single-vehicle accident involving injuries. Arriving on scene, they found that Odell Richardson, 66, Osgood, had entered his 2001 Chevrolet pickup, when for unknown reasons, the vehicle accelerated backwards across a parking lot at a high rate of speed, colliding with a building on Monroe Street.

Richardson was found in an unresponsive state and transported to Margaret Mary Health by Rescue 69, where he was subsequently airlifted to Methodist Hospital for treatment.

The contributing factor for the accident is believed to be a medical condition, but it is under investigation by the sheriff’s office.

The Ripley County Medic and Napoleon Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
