Master Trooper Mike Meiser

Meiser was booked into the Miami County Jail to face a misdemeanor charge of battery. He has since posted bond. 

Recently, the Indiana State Police launched a criminal investigation after receiving information that Meiser had purportedly committed battery against an Indiana State Police employee. 

During the investigation, enough probable cause was developed for a Miami Superior Court II arrest warrant to be issued. Today, at 1:15 p.m., Meiser was taken into custody and transported to the Miami County Jail.

Meiser is a 16-year-veteran of the Indiana State Police Department. He is currently assigned administrative duties until the completion of the criminal case and an Indiana State Police internal investigation. 

No further information will be released at this time.
