Three people were arrested on Monday after officers attempted to take Eric Wireman into custody on a warrant.
Officers received information that Eric Wireman, 31, was at 15385 W. 160 N. in Medaryville. He was wanted on a Starke County warrant for failure to appear. He did not appear in court on a felony charge of dealing in methamphetamine and a misdemeanor charge of visiting a common nuisance.
After surveilling the residence and observing people coming in and out of the residence, the responding officer asked for assistance. Troopers from the Indiana State Police, Medaryville Police Department and more deputies from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the residence.
Although the subjects at the residence were being uncooperative with police, officers were able to learn that Wireman was hiding underneath a trailer at the home. The K9 unit was requested at the scene. Wireman was given several commands to surrender, but he ignored the commands, according to a news release. K9 Gil was deployed, and Wireman was taken into custody. He was taken to Pulaski Memorial Hospital for treatment of a dog bite to his arm.
He was then transported to the Pulaski County Jail on the warrant and an additional preliminary misdemeanor charge of resisting law enforcement.
Two others were arrested for assisting a criminal and disorderly conduct. Shantelle Vierke and Sadie Wireman were booked into the Pulaski County Jail on those preliminary charges.
