SALEM, Ind. (WHAS11) – U.S. Federal Marshals arrested 26-year-old Dustin W. Spicer, from Salem, who is charged with intimidation on Wednesday evening, April 2.
Spicer is accused of making threats on a social media website. Spicer said he was going to do bodily harm to a Washington County Deputy, according to police. The alleged threats came about after the Washington County Sheriff’s Department had arrested one of Dustin’s family members around March 1, police said.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Department requested the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg begin an investigation.
On March 7, officers from the ISP and Washington County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant at a residence in the 2900 block of Mt. Tabor Road in Salem. Spicer was not at the residence and an arrest warrant for intimidation was sought for his arrest. The warrant was issued on March 10 and police said Spicer had been avoiding arrest until Wednesday, April 2.
Spicer was imprisoned at the Washington County Jail and is awaiting his first court appearance.
