Carmi Police Arrest Harrisburg Man after Carmi Fest Incident Saturday, Pick Up Enfield Man on Drug Charges

A Harrisburg man, who was refused access to the Carmi Fest Saturday afternoon made a scene and now faces multiple charges after Carmi Police caught up with him.  According to authorities, 68 year old Leonard Gauthier Jr. was refused access to the concert after attempting to bring in a cooler.  The man and his wife then opted to leave the event angry, proceeding to rip up their concert tickets and throwing them about the grounds while returning to his vehicle.  On his way out, Gauthier allegedly disobeyed traffic directors and leaving at a high rate of speed, nearly hit multiple vehicles head on before swerving into the walk path, running over a dozen traffic cones.  He would take 4 of them with him as they became trapped under his 2012 Lincoln.  Police say he refused to stop, but was later caught east of the Enfield intersection.  Gauthier faces charges of Reckless Driving, Improper Display of Registration, and Littering.  Officers gave Gauthier citations and released him on his way.


Jacob Rowe of Enfield

In the early morning hours Saturday, Carmi Police also booked an Enfield man who will miss the eclipse since he’ll be behind bars in the White County Jail.  Officers pulled over 26 year old Jacob Rowe at Oak and Burrell.  He’d be subsequently arrested on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Use of Property.  Additionally, Rowe was cited for Operation of Motor Vehicle with Suspended Registration due to Mandatory Insurance.  Rowe was also wanted on a Hamilton County warrant related to a simple traffic infraction.  He’s due in Hamilton County court on April 20th.

    Enfield is full of drug addicts & people who are selling drugs.
    They walk around town like zombies or riding their bicycle.
