located at 3995 Williamsburg Way, in regards to an unresponsive person inside the laundromat. Sgt. Jennifer Van Vactor and Officer Branch Schrader arrived at the business and allegedly found 32-year-old Brandon L. White, sleeping on a table. Officers reported that they had difficulty waking White up and noted that he had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Police say that once White was awake, he became belligerent and resisted arrest when the officers attempted to take him into custody.

Harris says that White was later transported to Columbus Regional Hospital for jail clearance. While at the hospital, police say that White continued to be belligerent and later spit on a hospital security officer.

Harris says that White was eventually transported to the Bartholomew County Jail where he was booked on preliminary charges of Public Intoxication, Resisting Law Enforcement and Battery by Bodily Waste.
