Trooper arrested on several charges after allegedly waving gun inside central Indiana restaurant


FISHERS, Ind. — An Indiana State Police officer who allegedly waved a gun inside a central Indiana restaurant faces preliminary charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness with a weapon.

Thirty-year-old Christopher Dyer was being held on $10,000 bond today at the Hamilton County Jail in Noblesville.

Police were called to the restaurant shortly before 2 a.m. today. They located Dyer nearby walking along a road. Fishers police spokesman Tom Weger tells The Indianapolis Star that Dyer had a blood-alcohol level of 0.27 percent.

An Indiana State police spokesman says Dyer had been assigned to road patrol duty at the Evansville post but he'll be placed on administrative duties and face an internal investigation.
