Seymour man added to sheriff’s most wanted list

Police continue to search for a man who failed to show up for a court hearing after he posted a $2,000 bond following his arrest on felony charges in November 2019.

A Jackson Circuit Court warrant was issued for the arrest of Nicholas Fields, 37, of Seymour on Feb. 26 after he failed to show up for a Feb. 24 pretrial hearing.

Fields is scheduled to stand trial on a Level 5 felony charge of criminal confinement resulting in bodily injury and a Level 6 felony charge of domestic battery at 8:30 a.m. April 24.

The charges stem from an incident on Colvin Court in Seymour, according to the probable cause affidavit signed by Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Officer Jesse Hutchinson.

A woman told police she tried to leave Fields’ home, but he blocked the exit and threw a shop vacuum at her. The shop vacuum missed her, but she told police Fields then grabbed her under her arms, picked her up and slammed her against a wall.

The woman told police said she believed Fields had been using methamphetamine when he became angry with her because he believed she had been cheating on him even though they were no longer dating, according to court records.

Police describe Fields as being 6 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing 230 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about this case should call the sheriff’s department at 812-358-2141.
