A Marion man was arrested for criminal confinement, battery and drug possession following an altercation that left one man injured.
Officers responded to the 300 block of East 8th Street Thursday evening to find four men yelling inside the apartment. One of the men claimed he was beaten and robbed at gunpoint by 26-year-old Christian Goree. After questioning the 21-year-old victim, he reportedly tried to flee officers and was subsequently tased.
Upon further investigation, officers found a gun inside the residence and cocaine inside a jacket pocket located behind a sofa. The drugs allegedly belonged to Goree. Goree was placed under arrest and sent to the Grant County Jail. He faces criminal confinement, battery and possession of cocaine.
