North Vernon man accused of fighting with police

North Vernon police say that a suspect in a battery incident went on to fight with officers at the scene.

Officers were called to a battery complaint in the Hidden Cove Apartments at about 6 p.m. Tuesday evening where a victim said that she had been battered by another resident. The suspect, 65-year-old Roland A. Foust of North Vernon, called dispatchers to complain that the victim was dumping her trash in the apartment complex dumpster. And then began cursing the dispatchers over the phone.

As police talked with the witness, Foust began to interrupt and when police told him to stop, he allegedly attacked and tried to choke an officer. Foust was arrested on charges including obstruction by interfering with an investigation, battery on a police officer, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.
