Mt. Carmel Man Jailed On Multiple Charges

On 11/25/17 at 10:28pm Mt. Carmel Police responded to a complaint of loud music coming from the 700 block of W 1st Street. When an officer arrived on scene they attempted to contact the resident in question with no success. A second call on the loud music came in at around 11:00pm. The resident exited the home this time but the resident refused to provide his name after multiple requests from the officers. Officers advised the subject he was under arrest for Obstructing Identification. The subject attempted to shut the door to avoid arrest and an officer attempted to step into the doorway to prevent the door from closing. The subject then continued to shut the door causing the officer to be pinned against the door frame and the door. The subject then began pushing on the door against the officer repeatedly. The officer was able to break free and place the subject, later identified as 31 year old Mt. Carmel resident Linden Scott Reed, under arrest. Reed was arrested for Obstructing Identification, Resisting a Peace Officer and Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer. Reed was transported to the Wabash County Jail where he is being held on a $3000.00 cash bond.
