Troopers arrested Jonathon Day, Roachdale, without incident at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the home of his mother in Roachdale.
Day was arrested on a Putnam Circuit Court warrant for criminal recklessness, a Class C felony; criminal confinement, a Class B felony; and domestic battery, a Class A Misdemeanor.
Indiana State Police Trooper Mike Wood initiated the investigation after being contacted by the Putnam County office of the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) to assist them with allegations of domestic issues involving a handgun at the Jonathon Day home in Roachdale.
Putnam County DCS received a tip that children were allegedly in the home at the time of incident and requested help from the Putnamville Post.
During the investigation, Trooper Wood developed information alleging Day became enraged at his wife, Jennifer Day, over marital issues, made aggressive physical contact with her, held her in the home against her will and discharged a firearm in close proximity to her.
The incident was reportedly calmed minutes later by Day's mother, who lives next door. The domestic situation began at approximately 3 a.m. Sunday.
Troopers were not contacted until the early evening hours of Wednesday, May 11 and in less than 24 hours, the case was investigated and an arrest was made.
Assisting Wood in the investigation were ISP Det. Jim Dungan and Troopers B.J. Patterson and Brian Thomas, along with representatives of the Indiana Department of Child Services (Putnam County), Putnam County Prosecutor's Office and the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.
