Entry Description

Peru – This morning, a traffic stop by Indiana State Police Sergeant T.J. Zeiser led to the arrests of two Peru, IN, men.

This morning at approximately 12:18 a.m., Indiana State Police Sergeant T.J. Zeiser initiated a traffic stop on a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse which was being driven by Clark Bailey, 21, Peru, IN. Zeiser stopped the Chevrolet on Miami County Road 250 South near Strawtown Pike for improper display of a license plate.

During the course of the traffic stop, Zeiser allegedly smelled the odor of burnt marijuana emitting from the Chevrolet. Zeiser then took Bailey into custody and secured him in his police car.

Zeiser then went back to the Chevrolet to speak with a passenger, later identified as Chad Gregory, 20, Peru, IN. As Zeiser was talking to Gregory outside the Chevrolet; Gregory became combative and tried to flee from the sergeant. A fight ensued with Gregory eventually breaking free and fleeing into a wooded area. Approximately three hours later, Gregory was apprehended at a relatives home located approximately two miles from the original traffic stop.

During a subsequent search of the Chevrolet, officers allegedly found a small amount of marijuana and alcoholic beverages. Bailey was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail to face misdemeanor charges for operating a vehicle while impaired (controlled substance) and contributing to the delinquency of minor.

Gregory was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on a felony charge for battery on a law enforcement officer. He also faces misdemeanor charges for resisting law enforcement, possession of a controlled substance under 30 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, and minor consumption of alcohol. He was treated by medical staff for cuts, lacerations, and abrasions prior to going to jail.

Sergeant Zeiser suffered minor cuts in the scuffle.

Sergeant Zeiser was assisted with this case by Master Trooper Paul Daugherty, Trooper Todd Trottier, Trooper Weston Shanks, Trooper Caleb Clark, the Miami County Sheriff’s Department, the Peru Police Department, the Wabash County Sheriff’s Department, Dukes Hospital EMS, and the Peru Fire Department.
