A Decorah man is being held in the Winneshiek County Jail, charged with two felony counts of Going Armed with Intent to Harm, one count of Aggravated Assault While Displaying a Dangerous Weapon, and one count of Reckless Driving. 

Sheriff's Deputies were called around 7:15 Tuesday night to the scene of an ATV accident on 155th Avenue.  Deputies were able to locate the accident, but not the driver, 38-year-old Jayme Kimber of Decorah.  A couple of hours later, they received another 9-1-1 call, this one from a residence on Middle Sattre Road near the area of the accident.  When deputies arrived, they learned the driver of the ATV was armed somewhere on the property and threatening to do harm to others.  Deputies located Kimber in a shed among hay bales at approximately 2:45 Wednesday morning.  They took him into custody without incident. 

The firearms were located and seized.  Kimber was taken by the Sheriff's Office to Winneshiek Medical Center for evaluation prior to being booked into the Winneshiek County Jail.

The Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Decorah Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, Decorah Fire Department (Drone Search), Winneshiek Medical Center Ambulance, Winneshiek County Emergency Management, and the Winneshiek County Attorney's Office.
