COLUMBUS, Ind. (September 2, 2015) – A Columbus man was arrested on several preliminary charges including driving while intoxicated and battery on a police officer after he was stopped for speeding early Tuesday morning.

At approximately 2:50 a.m., a Columbus police officer stopped a speeding vehicle with an expired license plate on SR 46 near SR 11.

When the officer spoke with the driver of the vehicle, Cameron B. Robertson, 21, of Columbus, he could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage on Robertson’s breath.

Robertson refused to take a breath test and was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital for a blood test.

After refusing to take the blood test, officers applied for a warrant for a blood sample from Robertson.

After the warrant was signed by a judge, Robertson began kicking and spitting on officers when the hospital staff began to obtain a blood sample.

Robertson was transported to the Bartholomew County Jail, and he faces charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, battery on a police officer, battery by bodily waste on a police officer, and resisting law enforcement.
