Bloomington Man Arrested After Pulling Gun On People Refusing To Help Him

Last updated on Tuesday, December 6, 2016

(BLOOMFIELD) - A Bloomington man was arrested after he allegedly pulled a gun on people refusing to help him get home.

Greene County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested 23-year-old Isaac Fields, who drew a gun on three people on Saturday, November 26.

Fields reportedly had contacted Greene County dispatch around 5:45 a.m., stating he was lost near a turkey barn.

Fields was unable to give the dispatcher his location so the dispatcher could give him directions. Fields then became very agitated.

Greene County dispatch received another call at 6:31 a.m. from a female who reported a male has stopped her and needed a ride and then held a gun to her head.

When police arrived at the turkey barns, Fields had left the area, but three witnesses told police Fields was intoxicated and pointed a gun at them.

The woman told police the male (Fields) kept cocking the gun attempting to chamber a round into the gun. Two of the witnesses were speaking Spanish and Fields began slapping his own face saying "I don't understand." He then pointed the gun at the other witnesses and stared "I'm not playing, give me a ride."

Police recovered a SAR gun case and cell phone where the incident took place.

Around 3:12 p.m., a Greene County dispatcher contacted the department saying she was following a vehicle that matched the one registered to Fields. The vehicle was stopped and Fields admitted there was a gun in the vehicle.

Fields then told police that his cell phone and gun case had been stolen and admitted to being at the turkey barns.

During an interview, Fields admitted to becoming belligerent and that he had got lost and that some Mexicans would not help him. The also admitted to being upset and getting a pistol out of the truck of his car, cocking it towards the ground and threatening the others.

Fields reportedly denied waving the unloaded gun around or pointing it at anybody. He told police he was just "freaked out" because the dispatcher could not help him when he became lost. Fields told police those at the barn never threatened him, but he felt threatened because they were speaking Spanish and would not help him.

Police say Fields did not have a handgun permit.

Fields was arrested on Level 5 felony charges of intimidation and two Class A misdemeanor charges of pointing an unloaded firearm and a Class A misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license. His initial hearing is scheduled for December 12.
