North Vernon man faces Domestic Battery charges

North Vernon Police arrested a Jennings County resident Sunday morning after responding to a report of an injured man.

A police department spokesperson says that officers responded to the call at 7:40 a.m., where they found a 20-year-old man suffering from a cut to his arm. After investigating, officers determined that a domestic battery had taken place.

Police say that while they were trying to arrest the suspect, Ace Holstein, 20, of North Vernon, Holstein attempted to run away once he was told that he was being arrested. They say that Holstein attempted his escape as officers were handcuffing him. The spokesperson says that officers were able to subdue, and arrest, Holstein before he could get away.

Authorities say that Holstein is facing preliminary charges of Domestic Battery (Class A misdemeanor), Strangulation (Level 6 Felony) and Resisting Law Enforcement (Class A misdemeanor).
