Scott County man charged in possible road rage incident


A 27-year-old Scott County man was jailed Sunday afternoon after he was involved in a possible road rage incident earlier the day in the Medora area, police report.

Andrew Ian Allman of Austin faces two preliminary counts of criminal recklessness, both Level 6 felonies; and a preliminary Level 5 felony of battery with a deadly weapon. He also faces preliminary charges of leaving the scene of a property damage wreck, aggressive driving and four counts of criminal mischief in connection with the incident, according to Jackson County Officer Mitch Ray’s report.

Ray said witnesses told police a red Chevrolet pickup driven by Allman had been trying to ram a gold Ford F-150 truck and that he then forced it off the road in the 8000 block of West County Road 425S in Carr Township.

After being run off the road, the motorist in the Ford F-150 hit a Rumpke of Indiana dumpster, a Jackson County Water Utility Co. meter and went into a yard damaging landscape. Allman, who was on house arrest, left the scene, but police were able to confirm he was in the area at time of the incident through GPS, Ray said.

Allman later came to the jail in Brownstown and was arrested after being interviewed by police.

No one was injured in the incident, Ray said, although witnesses told police Allman had tried to run the Ford F-150 off the road in an area with many drop offs some that went down hundreds of feet.

Allman was booked into the jail at 12:14 p.m. Sunday and being held without bond late Monday afternoon.
