Westport, IN A Jennings County man faces charges after allegedly hitting the Decatur County deputy sheriff at a gun shop near Westport.
Sheriff David Durant says Representatives responded to the 13,000 block of State Route 3 near the Decatur-Jennings County line after a man was reported as trespassing and refused to leave work.
He adds MPs who arrived at the scene found 23-year-old Joshua Michael Gallagher of Scipio, who was unable to follow their directions.
When the medical staff arrived, Durant says, Gallagher got into a fight and hit a deputy who was unharmed.
Gallagher was arrested and charged with a battery against a public safety official involved in an official assignment, and criminal trespassing.
Investigators say drug use by Gallagher is suspected.
