Warsaw Man Arrested For Intimidation Against Police Officer

A Warsaw man was arrested Tuesday night for intimidation against a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department officer.
Curtis B. Collins, 39, of 5870 S. Woodland Lane, Warsaw, was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail Tuesday for intimidation, a level 6 felony and resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor. 
According to the probable cause affidavit from the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office, on Tuesday evening a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department officer responded to a possible suicidal 15 year-old female in the Sellers Lake area. 

When the officer arrived he located the female laying in the yard.  The officer observed dried blood on the teen’s forearms. As the officer talked with the teen, a male identified as Curtis Collins approached causing the girl to become upset.

The officer told Collins to stay away, but he allegedly failed to comply. When another officer attempted to get Collins to move away, Collins hit the officer with both fists. Officers placed Collins in hand restraints and placed him in the backseat of a patrol vehicle.
Collins began kicking the window, bending the door frame on the responding officer’s vehicle. Officers applied leg shackles and then fastened the shackles to the floor, preventing Collins from causing any more damage or possibly hurting himself. 

While in route to the sheriff’s department, Collins allegedly attempted to headbutt and bite the officer. 
As Collins was being transported to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department he allegedly told the officer “I’ll cut your throat and your family’s throats.” Collins also told the officer he was going to have sexual relations with the officer’s wife and mother.
