A warrant was issued Monday for the arrest of a Sullivan woman because she allegedly violated a protective order after being convicted of the same allegation in 2011.
Greene Circuit Judge Erik Allen issued a warrant for the arrest of Shalya L. Bowling after approving a probable cause affidavit filed by Linton Police Officer Chad E. Crynes.
She is charged with invasion of privacy ---- a class A misdemeanor; and invasion of privacy with a previous conviction ---- a class D felony.
Crynes stated that he was on patrol in the area on State Road 54 and Lakeside Body Shop in Linton on May 6 when he noticed a vehicle at about 1:10 a.m. parked in front of the closed business. The vehicle was occupied by two individuals.
As Crynes turned around to check on the vehicle, it started to leave in what Crynes said was an attempt to elude him, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Crynes followed the vehicle on State Road 54 and made a traffic stop in the area of NW 4th and F Sts. NW.
Bowling, a passenger in the vehicle, told Crynes that she and the driver, Chadwick L. Childers, pulled in front of the business because they were arguing, according to the probable cause affidavit.
When Crynes ran a license check on both vehicle occupants he discovered there was an active "no contact" protective order on Bowling against Childers as the protected individual issued out Vigo County Superior Court as a condition of a pre-trial release.
A further examination of Bowling's criminal history showed that she had previously been convicted of invasion of privacy-violation of a protective order in Whitley County Superior Court on Nov. 29, 2011 in which Childers was the victim.
