SYRACUSE — Adult charges were filed Tuesday, May 31, in Kosciusko Superior Court 1 against Zackary Allen, 18, 11314 N. East Wawasee Drive, Syracuse. Allen was waived to adult court on charges of battery and intimidation, both level 6 felony, following an altercation with a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s officer.
He was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail Tuesday and released on his own recognizance.
Documents state a waiver petition was filed on April 7, stating there was probable cause to believe Allen committed acts, which would be offenses if committed by an adult: battery against a public safety official, and intimidation, both level 6 felonies. Documents also state he is “beyond rehabilitation under the juvenile justice system and it is in the best interest of Allen and the community he stand trial as an adult.”
He will appear in adult court for an initial hearing at 8:30 a.m. June 2.
