KOSCIUSKO — A North Webster man was recently booked in the Kosciusko County Jail after resisting arrest and causing injury to a police officer.
Brandon Scott Mulldune, 31, 10 EMS W29 Lane, North Webster, is being charged with battery resulting in bodily injury to a law enforcement officer, a level 5 felony; and possession of methamphetamine, resisting law enforcement, and attempted obstruction of justice, all level 6 felonies.
On July 19, officers with the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office went to a residence to serve a warrant. Upon arrival, officers saw a man, identified as Mulldune, standing outside. An officer at the scene discovered that Mulldune had an active warrant from Kosciusko County and began attempting to place him under arrest.
According to court documents, the officer was able to place one of Mulldune’s arms in hand restraints when Mulldune began attempting to pull away. This caused both Mulldune and the officer to fall. The officer sustained several cuts to his wrist and an abrasion to his right elbow.
While attempting to gain control over Mulldune, officers discovered that Mulldune had a plastic bag in his mouth containing methamphetamine that he was allegedly attempting to swallow. Officers were then able to gain control of Mulldune and retrieved the bag from his mouth.
Mulldune has already been arrested and released on his own recognizance. He has an initial hearing date at 8:15 a.m. Aug. 8, in Kosciusko County Circuit Court.
