JASPER (NNDC) – A Jasper man has now been formally charged after crashing his pickup truck in a southeast side Jasper neighborhood and into a house Wednesday evening.

Jasper police say 23-year old Ted Gramelspacher’s truck collided with a home on Briarcliff Parkway.

JPD says Gramelspacher’s truck went off the road striking the mailboxes of 1431 and 1428 Briarcliff Parkway. The truck then struck a lightpole and traveled through the yard at 1409 Briarcliff Parkway before colliding up against the house at that address.

When officers arrived, they ordered Gramelspacher to get out of truck, but they say he continued to try and free the vehicle to no avail.

Police then removed Gramelspacher from the truck and detained him.

Police say because of Gramelspacher’s incoherent state, EMS was called to the scene and he was transported to Memorial Hospital. While being transported, JPD says Gramelspacher spit on an EMT.

JPD also say initial toxicology screenings show Gramelspacher tested positive for THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).

Gramelspacher was admitted to the hospital. Thursday morning he was transferred to the Dubois County Security Center after being medially cleared by the hospital.

Gramelspacher is now charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated on a controlled substance, resisting law enforcement and battery on a public health official.
