Jasper County, IN – Repeat Trespassing Offense Leads to Taser Use on Rensselaer Man


Share post:

Rensselaer, IN – A reported repeat trespassing incident at a Rensselaer business escalated to the use of a Taser by police last Wednesday evening. 

According to Rensselaer Police, officers were initially dispatched to the scene at a business located in the 100 block of N. Cullen Street after a call from an employee regarding Robert Marshall, 39, from Rensselaer. Marshall was directed to leave and was allegedly trespassing on the property.

Despite this warning, Marshall returned to the site shortly after, prompting a second police response. Upon his return, officers attempted to arrest him for trespassing. Marshall resisted arrest and, during the ensuing altercation, managed to disarm a Jasper County Deputy. The situation led the deputy to deploy a Taser to bring the situation under control.

Both officers involved received minor injuries. Marshall was medically evaluated before being booked into the Jasper County Jail on charges including criminal trespassing, resisting law enforcement, and additional felonies related to the incident.
