Police arrest brothers after incident involving alcohol, gun

PENDLETON, Ind. — Madison County sheriff’s deputies arrested two brothers after an incident allegedly involving alcohol, a shot fired from a handgun and a short pursuit on foot Saturday night. No injuries were reported.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Ryan Roundtree, 32, of Pendleton, on a charge of Class D felony criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and his brother, Christopher Roundtree, 29, of Lapel, on a charge of Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.

Their arrests stemmed from an incident that occurred Saturday, when the Madison County Sheriff’s Department received a call of shots fired in the 8100 block of South Evening Drive at 9:07 p.m.

According to a press release issued by Maj. Brian Bell, the caller was an off-duty officer who also reported hearing shouts about someone having a gun.

When police began to approach a house in the 8200 block of South Evening Drive, where they believed the shots to have come from, they spotted a man fleeing from the home and began to pursue him on foot, according to the press release.

Deputies lost the man on the north side of the residence and returned to the house, where they received permission to enter and found several people inside, including children and an infant child.

The owner of the home told officers there’d been an argument, but that she was unaware of any shots fired.

An investigation revealed that Ryan Roundtree was allegedly intoxicated and had fired a shot from a handgun in the backyard of his residence at the South Evening Drive address, Bell said in the release.

Christopher Roundtree told police he’d seen his brother fire the gun and that afterward, he took the firearm and ran off with it, hiding it next door before returning to his brother’s house, the press release said.

Both Roundtrees have since posted bond from the Madison County Jail.
