A Brown County man who skipped a number of court dates is now being held in the Bartholomew County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Brandon B. Jacobs, 23, of 6050 Three Notch Road, Nashville, initially was arrested in February on charges of driving while suspended, as well as illegal possession and illegal storage of anhydrous ammonia.
Jacobs, who posted bond, was arrested a month later on charges of driving illegally again and for not wearing a seat belt, according to court records.
After being set free a second time, Jacobs failed to show up for several court dates.
So a petition was issued Sept. 10 to revoke his former bond and raise it to $100,000, court records show.
For more than a month, officers were unable to locate Jacobs, who again skipped an Oct. 7 change-of-plea hearing on the original charges.
Jacobs finally was taken into custody Monday on a Bartholomew County warrant by Columbus Police Department officer Julie Quesenbery. He was booked into jail at 3:19 p.m. Monday.
