PD: Intoxicated grandson fights grandma, threatens police in Johnson County

Hunter Jedele, 18, taken into custody

JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. - An 18-year-old man was arrested Sunday after police accused him of fighting his grandmother inside her home in Whiteland.

Just after 8:30 p.m., Johnson County Sheriff's deputies were sent to a home in the 6200 block of North 125 West on reports of a disturbance. According to the police report, Pamela Abrams called 911 and told dispatchers she was being beat up by her 18-year-old grandson. Dispatchers said they could hear fighting over the phone before the call was disconnected. When police arrived at the home, they found Abrams in her bedroom and her grandson, Hunter Jedele, 18, in another bedroom.

Police said when they tried to talk to Jedele, he smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred. According to the police report, Jedele yelled at police to take him to jail. He also admitted to drinking and pushing his grandmother, the report said.

When police asked Abrams about the incident, she told them she had gotten into an argument with Jedele about underage drinking. When she called 911, he pushed her and took the phone away from her, the report said. During the struggle, Abrams told police he hit her in the mouth and that her husband had to pull Jedele off of her.

Jedele's grandfather, Luttie Abrams, told police that surveillance video inside the home captured the entire incident.

As part of the investigation, Jedele was given a Breathalyzer test. The results showed his Blood Alcohol Content was .11 percent, more than the legal limit of .08 percent, police said.

Police arrested Jedele at the home and once he was in handcuffs, he began cursing and threatening officers. Police said Jedele's belligerent behavior continued en route to jail.

Jedele was taken to the Johnson County Jail on charges of disorderly conduct.
