Robert Allen

Two North Judson residents were arrested Sunday after they were reportedly tearing up a resident’s yard on 750 North in Pulaski County.

An officer with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department responded to the residence. The owners reportedly had a run-in with Allen before and had buried 2X4 boards with nails sticking out of them in the front yard. Allen had allegedly showed up at the house, revved his engine and started doing donuts in the yard. The owners ran outside with a baseball bat and Allen exited his vehicle and they all exchanged words. Allen then reportedly got back into his truck and drove the truck toward the residents. They then called police.

Officers found the truck and pulled over the vehicle at the intersection of County Roads 750 North and 800 West. The reporting officer stated in his report that when he approached the vehicle he saw the driver, Robert Allen, make a quick motion toward the passenger’s side of the vehicle and then he heard a thud. The officer approached the vehicle and he saw that the driver, Robert Allen, appeared to be agitated and intoxicated. There were open beer cans in the truck and he reportedly told the officer that he was at the residence and he had a problem with the owner.

The passenger in the vehicle, Chelsey Adam, 18, reportedly said that they were indeed at the residence and they had driven in the owner’s yard and caused damage. Adam admitted to consuming alcohol and she was taken to the Pulaski County Jail, as well as Robert Allen. Allen was given a Portable Breathalizer Test at the jail and it indicated that he was over the legal limit. He then reportedly became very belligerent and caused problems at the jail. He refused to follow orders by the officers and the officers tased Allen. He then did not cause any more trouble at the jail.

Allen, 23, has preliminary charges of Intimidation, Criminal Mischief, Operating a Vehicle with a BAC of .15 or greater, Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Law Enforcement. Adams was charged with Minor Consumption.
