Man arrested on Endangering Childern.

From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley


On August 8th, 2014 Deputy Greg Mix of the Van Buren County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a call on Moody Road in Van Buren County.  The nature of the call was reported to Mix as two small children, (male and female), in the roadway.  Mix said when he arrived the children were sitting on the front porch of the residence.  Mix found the door of the residence wide open when he arrived and saw a man lying on the floor with the odor of intoxicants about his person.  Mix reported it took several nudges and approximately 5 minutes to get the man awake.  Mix identified the man as 31 year old Jason Owens Dennison of Clinton. Mix said Dennison reported he has five or six beers and feel asleep.

Dennison is being charged with 2 counts of Felony Endangering the welfare of a minor.

Dennison bond was set at $8000.00
