A man and his female passenger were injured following a motorcycle accident at the T intersection of Lucas and Lane Streets on Scottsburg's north side.

Patrolmen Greg Green and Shawn Hurt were dispatched by 9-1-1 staff just before 8:45 p.m. when the injury accident was reported. They found a Honda Passport, described as a small motorcycle, in the front yard of 839 Lane Street near the couple who was also lying down.

According to observations made by Ptl. Hurt, the bike appeared to have been traveling east on Lucas St. Driver Timothy J. Daniels, 28, Chattanooga, Tn., told the officer that he struck the curb on the east side of Lane St., throwing the pair from the bike.

Daniels said he was the driver. He also said he'd noticed “...the bike wasn't running right” before the mishap. Ptl. Hurt said he noted the odor of alcohol on the man's breath as they talked. He said Daniels related he'd had four beers.

The woman, identified as Leslie Ellen Anderson, 22, Scottsburg, was unable to give the officers information. She experienced severe neck pain, while Daniels was suffering back pain. One of his lungs collapsed. Both were assisted by Scott County EMS technicians at the scene. They were then transported to Scott Memorial Hospital.

The bike was impounded by Ptl. Hurt, who cited Daniels later for having no proof of insurance. Other charges are pending.

Officers were assisted at the scene by Scottsburg First Responders.

William “Junior” Sadler, the Austin man who shot a weapon in his home and at that of his neighbor's on Saturday, October 15, was released on bond to await his trial set for February, 2017.

Sadler, 48, was taken into custody by Major Donald Spicer of the Austin Police Department after the incident, which was reported to 9-1-1 dispatchers shortly after 10 p.m.

The caller, Sadler's wife, told Maj. Spicer, Deputy Joe Johnson and reserve officers Bobby Cravens and Jeff Fortner that her husband had “...shot the house up...” on South Third Street and then went into a bedroom.

As the officers entered the hallway leading to the bedroom, Maj. Spicer said he could smell fresh gunpowder. When they got into the bedroom, he said he saw guns and some shell casings along with magazines and live ammunition on a bed. Sadler was allegedly attempting to load another gun and ignored the officers' commands to drop the gun.

Deputy Johnson wrestled the gun away from Sadler, Maj. Spicer said. Then the two officers gained control of the man and handcuffed him.

Sadler acted erratically, with several mood swings, the officer observed. Scott County EMS technicians were called to the house to evaluate his physical condition. Once he was checked, he was taken to the local jail.

According to what officers discovered, Sadler had apparently fired one or more weapons during the incident. All guns were found in the bedroom. Damage occurred to a wall, door and television.

Some of the bullets had traveled into a neighbor's home just north of the residence, with at least three bullets penetrating the home. One of the occupants was asleep inside the home but was uninjured. Another bullet reportedly penetrated the wall of a two-year-old girl's room.

The child was outside with her father at the time, since her dad had carried her over to the Sadler home after he heard the Sadlers arguing. The neighbor said he fled with the child when Sadler reached under a bed and pulled out a handgun which he began shooting.

All of the guns in the residence were confiscated by officers. Deputy Josh Watterson provided assistance by taking photos at the scene.

At his initial hearing in Scott Circuit Court on Monday, October 18, Sadler learned that he has been charged with two counts of criminal recklessness, as Level 5 and Level 6 felonies.

Judge Roger Duvall scheduled an initial trial date of February 14. He also appointed a public defender to the case and set Sadler's bail at $25,000 by corporate surety bond or $5,000 by cash bail.

A surety bond was filed for Sadler that same day, and he was released to await his trial. As a condition of his release, he was ordered to have no contact with his neighbor.
