Aurora Man Accused Of Striking Public Safety Officer

The incident occurred on January 6 after an alleged drunk driver was taken into custody in Dillsboro.

(Dillsboro, Ind.) - An Aurora man is accused of committing battery against a public safety officer.

Dillsboro Police encountered an alleged drunk driver stopped along Lenover Street on January 6.

Police say the driver Tanner Kincade, 28, was slumped over outside the driver's side of his vehicle. When asked by police what he was doing, Kincade stated, "out to pick up my dog." 

However, according to police there was already a dog in the backseat of the vehicle. Kincade again said, "I am going to pick it up." 

At that point, police asked Kincade for his identification. He allegedly handed the officer a bank card. 

According to a probable cause affidavit, police later located a half empty bottle of Jack Daniels on the passenger seat. 

While transporting Kincade to the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center, Kincade allegedly damaged padding in the cruiser with his teeth in addition to making himself vomit in the backseat.

Kincade remained hostile while being booked into jail and allegedly used an open hand to slap an officer in the face. Kincade continued to scream stating, "you're all ***** *** *******." 

He is charged with Battery on a Public Safety Officer (Level 6 Felony) and Criminal Mischief (Class B Misdemeanor). He has since posted bail.
