* Jan. 17 -- Joshua A. Penick, 23, Jasonville, was arrested by LPD Patrolman Brock Garrison during a traffic stop around 10:10 p.m. Penick was traveling west on State Road 54 in a Mitsubishi Eclipse when the officer was stopped for alleged speeding -- going 63 in a 50 mph zone. Penick's license was checked and the police report says the BMV reported his license was suspended on a prior conviction. Penick was taken into custody on a preliminary charge of driving while suspended and transported to jail. His vehicle was locked and secured.

* Jan. 20 -- Michael Allen Faulk, 42, Linton, was arrested by LPD Patrolman Paul Clark after Clark responded to a report of a domestic situation where a female had fled from a residence. The police report states upon investigation, the officer learned Faulk had shoved the woman's face, battering her, then made her leave the residence. She called 911. The report indicates Faulk may not have been cooperative and he resisted when Officer Clark tried to restrain him. Faulk was transported to the county jail and booked in on preliminary charges of battery, intimidation and resisting law enforcement.
