On August 31, officers from the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department and the Wolcottville Police Department were called to Gordon’s Campground on a report of possible drug activity.
As officers attempted to locate the campsite where the alleged drug activity was occurring, officers heard loud screams coming from another campsite. Officers observed a male subject, later identified as Joey Spencer, 45, screaming and using abusive language while other people attempted to calm him down. Officers reportedly saw Spencer getting aggravated and pushing the individuals around him. As officers attempted to make contact with Spencer, they observed him strike another male in the face.
Spencer was taken to the LaGrange County Jail on preliminary charges of Battery.
