Posted by on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 @ 7:43 pm.

SPENCER CO., Ind. – Earlier this week (Sunday, August 25), Spencer County 911 Dispatch received an emergency call reporting an agitated adult male at the Interstate 64 rest area near the 58 mile marker.

Initially, a Dale K-9 officer responded to the scene and made contact with Taylor Ware, 24, Kansas City, Mo. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to reason with Ware, a struggle ensued at which point Ware allegedly battered the Dale officer. The Dale officer then deployed his K-9 partner in efforts to gain control of the situation.

Moments later, a Santa Claus officer arrived and observed Ware continuing to resist the Dale Officer and his K-9. The Santa Claus officer then deployed his TASER but was unsuccessful in subduing Ware. Ware then began to choke the K-9 with one hand, while grabbing the officer’s TASER with the other hand. While holding the TASER, Ware attempted to deploy the TASER on the Santa Claus officer.

Indiana State Troopers from the Jasper Post then arrived on scene after additional assistance was requested. Ware was placed into handcuffs and temporarily subdued until a previously-staged ambulance arrived minutes later. Ware continued to resist while being provided immediate medical attention at the scene.

Ware was initially transported to Jasper Memorial Hospital before being transferred to the University of Louisville Hospital. 

Yesterday, August 28, ISP Officials were made aware that Ware had died at U of L Hospital. The cause of death is unknown at this time. An autopsy has been scheduled for tomorrow. 

Those who were at the rest area and witnessed the above described events are encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police Jasper Post at 1-800-742-7475. 

The matter remains under investigation by the Indiana State Police and these are all of the facts that are available for release at this time. 

All next of kin notifications have been made.
