Police arrest man on most wanted list


Police have caught a man who was recently added to the county’s most wanted list.

A Jackson Circuit Court warrant was issued for the arrest of Nicholas Alan Fields, 37, of Seymour on Feb. 26 after he failed to show up for a Feb. 24 pretrial hearing. He was added to the most wanted list March 10.

His warrant was served late Wednesday night when the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department arrested Fields at 11:38 p.m.

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 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.
