Trouble Finder Back in Jail

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte area man with a history of finding trouble is in trouble once again. Jared Marshall, 42, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with burglary, domestic battery, and theft.


Marshall, on May 27, somehow entered a home on Judson Road in Center Township and began placing items in a backpack. He has relatives living there but was not supposed to be at the house under a trespass warning.


According to court documents, he encountered his nephew in the home and asked the boy to hug him. However, the boy suspecting his uncle was acting strangely and was on drugs didn’t want to hug him. Marshall allegedly grabbed the boy by the shoulders and began shaking him hard enough to cause the child to feel some discomfort.


A short time later, a man fitting the description of Marshall walked a Family Express and began throwing food and behaving like he was drugs, according to court documents. He was later arrested when police were called after he allegedly showed up again at the same home.


Marshall already has pending charges for allegedly sexually touching a woman outside a home during a neighborhood dispute in the 500 block of Maple Ave. in La Porte’s downtown area. According to court records, Marshall has been convicted or arrested on numerous occasions for at least the past 15 years.


The offenses range from Battery, Criminal Trespassing, Resisting Law Enforcement, Obstruction of Justice, and Operating While Intoxicated to Failure to Possess a Fishing License When Required, an infraction that resulted in him paying a fine, according to court records.
