On Thursday February 9, a concerned citizen called the Marshall County Dispatch Center about 5:30 in afternoon for a possibly intoxicated male at the “Creekside School” at 6378 Beech Road.  The caller told police the subject left in a vehicle, and later advised that he returned and had gotten to the school.

Marshall County Police, Bremen Police, and Indiana State Police responded to the school and saw the male subject flee into the basement.

The subject resisted law enforcement and was taken into custody. He was identified as 37 year old Jason L. Yoder of Wakarusa.

Yoder was lodged in the Marshall County Jail for Resisting Law Enforcement, Battery Against Law Enforcement, and Public Intoxication. His cash bond was set at $1,500 and his initial court day is scheduled for February 28th in Superior Court II.


Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
