Officers continued their search and were notified that a witness had spotted Ross exit the woods in the 3100 block of Ted Jones Drive and enter an apartment.
Officers located Ross inside the apartment. He was then taken to IU Health Hospital for a medical evaluation and then to jail on charges of resisting arrest by fleeing and criminal mischief.
Witnesses told police Ross broke the window, not to break into the church, but because he was mad at his girlfriend.
