Man arrested in connection with domestic incident

A 32-year-old Seymour man was arrested more than two weeks after police said he battered a woman.

Jared Honey faces preliminary Level 6 felony charges of domestic battery and strangulation following his arrest Wednesday night.

Police said Honey had battered a woman on the evening of June 24 in the 500 block of West 10th Street.

The woman told police he had choked her and headbutted her in the head.

Officer Jeremy Soliday responded to the call, but Honey had left before he arrived and could not be located.

Officer Ben Miller was able to locate Honey at 9:17 p.m. Wednesday at a hotel in the 200 block of South Commerce Drive on the city’s east side.

Honey was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 10:08 p.m. without bond pending his initial hearing.

A Level 6 felony is punishable between six months and two and half years upon conviction. The advisory sentence is one year.
