NEW CASTLE, Ind. – A convicted drug dealer who told police he was a “stupid dope fiend” is in trouble with the law again.

William Henry Pete Reeves, 26, of the 2000 block of Lincoln Avenue, was arrested early Saturday after he allegedly tried to flee from a New Castle officer who had observed him walking along railroad tracks.

The officer reported that after a brief conversation about 2:15 a.m., Reeves fled on foot and was apprehended after being shocked with an electrical stun device. Following a struggle, the New Castle man was found to be carrying two plastic bags holding a total of 3.2 grams of crystal meth.

Reeves was examined at Henry County Hospital after telling authorities he had smoked meth a short time before his encounter with the officer.

He was found to be carrying $369 in cash, and a police K-9 indicated the scent of controlled substances was emanating from his wallet.

The arresting officer said Reeves apologized for fleeing, saying it was a foolish act since the officer already knew his name.

Another officer, meanwhile, reported Reeves referred to himself as a “stupid dope fiend,” and said he should have sold all of his meth rather than keeping some for his own use.

Reeves was charged Monday in Henry Circuit Court 1 with dealing in meth and resisting law enforcement.

He was convicted of dealing in a controlled substance in 2015, drawing a six-year prison term. He was released from custody in March, according to a state Department of Correction website.

Reeves was also convicted of domestic battery in 2012.
