Rush Co. Shooter Facing Multiple Charges
March 14, 2007 - The Rush County Prosecutor has filed criminal charges against a rural Rush County who shot another man in the face with a shotgun earlier this month.
Thirty-year-old Lowell Nathan Price is alleged to have shot 38-year-old Rodney Polston in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun on March 4. Last Thursday, Rush County Prosecutor Paul Barada, Jr., filed documents with the Rush Circuit Court charging Price with aggravated battery, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, and two additional counts of battery.
Detective Captain Jim Owens of the Rush County Sheriff's Department told The Banner last week that Price had a confrontation with Polston, who Owens identified as Price's mother's boyfriend. Owens said both men lived with Price's mother, Mary, at 4639 N. CR 550-W, Rushville, where the shooting occurred. After the shooting, Polston was transported by Lifeline helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Listed in critical, but stable, condition last week, a representative from the hospital did not return The Banner's call to check Polston's status on Tuesday.
Although Price was arrested on March 4, court records indicate he posted a $30,000 surety bond and was released from the Rush County Jail. He appeared in the Rush Circuit Monday afternoon for an initial hearing, and a tentative trial date has been set for May 15.
