Minartz was arrested for domestic battery resulting in bodily injury in the presence of a child. He also faces charges of possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

-- At 4:19 p.m. Sunday, James T. Coy, 33, Greencastle, was arrested by Officer Jeff Modlin on a theft charge and was lodged in the Putnam County Jail.

City Police said Coy allegedly took $27.90 in merchandise from the Greencastle Walmart store. He reportedly put shaving cream, a baby outfit and Pampers in a Walmart bag and left without paying.

The suspect told police someone else handed him the bag, and he assumed the items had been paid for.

In another incident, Derick McGaughey, 24, Greencastle, is facing a charge of failure to stop after a property-damage accident.

The mishap occurred at 12:09 a.m. Sunday, Officer Matt Huffman said, when McGaughey reportedly hit a utility pole at Wood and Tennessee streets and left the scene.

A one-vehicle accident on the Walmart store parking lot at 4:30 p.m. Saturday resulted in damage to a yellow pole protecting a fire hydrant, Officer Darrel Bunten said.

Annie Vanderlaan, 56, Coatesville, struck the pole with her 2000 Chevrolet 1500, resulting in damage of $1,000-$2,500.

A 2011 Kia Sportage, driven by Matthew Hawthorne, 21, Greencastle, was northbound and struck the rear of a 2005 Dodge Ram, driven by Ryan Overshiner, 34, Greencastle, Officer Ed Wilson reported.

Impact pushed the Overshiner vehicle into the path of a southbound 2003 Chevrolet Blazer, driven by Nicole Schmidli, 32, Greencastle.

Damage to the 2011 Kia was estimated at $5,000-$10,000. Damage to the Overshiner vehicle was listed at $2,500-$5,000, while damage to the Schmidli vehicle was estimated at $1,000-$2,500.
