According to the Ohio County Sheriff's Office, the officer was responding to reports of a suspicious person in the area. Authorities said the off-duty conservation officer responded to the dispatcher's reports, and made contact with the man, identified as Justin Holland, 32. Officials said Holland resisted arrest, and a fight broke out between the pair. "At some point, that officer began to lose that altercation with that person," said Sgt. Stephen Wheeles with Indiana State Police. "It was at that time that a female who was nearby saw what was taking place and decided that she needed to take action and come to the assistance of that officer."
