The Indiana State Police says 42-year-old Phillip Brundage of Haubstadt, Indiana, was arrested on Monday morning after an investigation into accusations that he had inappropriately touched an underage boy.

ISP says a criminal investigation was opened after someone accused Brundage of fondling a boy under the age of 14.

During the investigation, an ISP Detective discovered that the alleged crime had happened back in the summer of 2018.

After reviewing the investigation, ISP says the Gibson County Prosecutors Office issued an arrest warrant for Brundage for Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, a Level 5 Felony.

On Monday morning, Brundage was arrested after he turned himself in at the Gibson County Jail. He was later released after posting bond.

Brundage was previously arrested in November of 2020 on charges of possession of child pornography, but ISP didn't indicate any connection between Monday morning's arrest and that case.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
