The latest crackdown by Indiana State Excise Police resulted in 16 arrests near Ball State’s campus.
Officers were patrolling in Muncie Friday night, arresting 13 people for illegal possession or transportation of alcohol. Police also issued several traffic citations.
Officers arrested a Lewisville man on five separate charges. Police said Cody A. Fellers, 20, tried to run from police. According to investigators, Fellers had a fake ID and marijuana. Charges against him include possession of a false ID, possession of marijuana, illegal possession of alcohol, resisting law enforcement by fleeing and resisting law enforcement by force.
According to police, Fellers was wanted for failure to appear on a charge of illegal possession of alcohol related in Monroe County. Those charges stemmed from an April arrest in Bloomington.
Excise officers also arrested two adults for providing alcohol to minors.
