WARSAW — A misdemeanor theft charge against an Indianapolis man was enhanced to a level 6 felony after it was learned he had been convicted on conversion in 2015. He also faces three other charges including two charges of battery by bodily waste, both level six felonies, and disorderly conduct, a class B misdemeanor.
Quincy Jenkins, 22, 2330 N. Wheeler, Indianapolis, was booked in the county jail at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, on the four charges, along with probation violation.
A drug screen showed Jenkins tested positive for marijuana and amphetamines and was admitted to the hospital
Warsaw Police Officer Rogelio A. Navarro filed information with the courts on July 30, that on July 24, police were called to Steak N Shake regarding a male acting strange. Jenkins, who was recognized by police from a prior incident, started addressing the officer with the “N” word and yelling “don’t shoot me, man” even when asked to keep the noise level down.
The manager and server of the business stated Jenkins entered the restaurant and was acting strange. Stating he had no money, he began bothering customers. When a server asked if there was any one she could contact, he asked if sh wanted to “bump.” When the manager called police, Jenkins took a $50 Vetech phone owned by the store and left.
Emergency personnel responded to the scene, due to his strange behavior, with police. Jenkins had to be restrained to the gurney to be transported to Kosciusko Community Hospital after resisting officers.
At the hospital Jenkins spit on two nurses — one in the face, the other on the arm, face and chest.
During the investigation police found Jenkins was convicted of conversion in Kosciusko Superior Court II on Dec. 2, and again on May 1, and convicted of burglary on March 15 in Kosciusko Superior Court 1.
Jenkins is behind held on no bond for the probation violation and $5,000 surety and $250 cash bond on the additional charges.
