PRINCETON, IN (WFIE) -

Princeton Police say they have arrested 26-year-old Jeramy K. Eaton for the drive-by shootings in Princeton on Halloween night.

Police say it happened at about 11:30 Wednesday night at Breakers Bar on Main Street.

Princeton authorities say a Eaton, who was likely drunk at the time, came into Breakers but was refused service so he left.

Police say Eaton came back in a vehicle and fired shots at the bar. Some of the bullets went inside the building, but no one was hurt.

Authorities say he continued north on Main Street, firing shots at the State Farm office and Colvin Funeral home. Officials say Eaton ended up at Pine and Seminary where he tossed the gun.

Police say they found the gun and a gun magazine on the ground.

They say after reviewing surveillance and testimony from witnesses, Eaton was arrested without incident at his Grandparents home on Friday.

Officials say he is cooperating with police.

He is housed at the Gibson County Jail on a $5000 bond.

Eaton is schedule to appear in court hearing on Monday at 9 a.m.
