An incident first reported as a burglary-in-progress led to the arrest of a Columbus man on four separate charges.
Micah Fisher, 36, of 620 Union St., was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia.
The initial call concerning Fisher came shortly before 4 p.m. Friday from a home on Spring Valley Drive, on the southeast side of the Columbus airport. Police spokesman Lt. Matt Myers said the call was made by a woman who said she had locked herself inside a bathroom to seek protection from a man with a knife.
After the woman gave Officer Wesley Dodge the suspect’s description, Fisher was seen walking a short distance from the home, Myers said. He said Fisher repeatedly refused Dodge’s demand to stop and show his hands.
Since the suspect was believed to have a knife, Fisher was physically subdued and handcuffed after he shook his fist at Dodge in a threatening manner, Myers said.
After Dodge searched Fisher, he found a plastic bag with a white powder that appeared to be methamphetamine, Myers said. Pills suspected to be oxycodone also were recovered, as well as three knives, a razor blade and drinking straws with a white residue.
Myers said Fisher has been at the Spring Valley Drive address a number of times, so he will not been charged with attempted burglary. The drug-related charges are Class D felonies, and resisting law enforcement is a Class A misdemeanor.
Fisher was booked into the Bartholomew County jail at 5:34 p.m., where he remains in lieu of $30,000 bond. Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash will decide what charges, if any, will be filed.
