Argument Leads To Jasper Man Being Arrested On Drug Charges



Jasper (NNDC) – A Thursday morning argument between a man and a woman at her northside Jasper home ended with him going to jail for disorderly conduct and drug possession.

A short time after Jasper police officers arrived at the woman’s home in the 2300 block of Sunset Drive at about 10AM, the man, 20-year old Joseph Vaughn of Ferdinand was asked to leave the residence.

Police say Vaughn initially walked away but returned later and began yelling; this time at both the woman and others in the home as well as at the officers.

JPD says Vaughn did not adhere to the officers advising him to cease what is being described as “disorderly behavior,” and continued his “rant.”

Police say Vaughn was given “multiple chances” and warnings to comply, but he refused and was subsequently taken into custody.

While in custody, police say officers found an illegal Schedule IV controlled substance in his possession.
