IC 35-47-14-1. “Dangerous” defined

Sec. 1. (a) For the purposes of this chapter, an individual is “dangerous” if:

(1) the individual presents an imminent risk of personal injury to the individual or to another individual; or

(2) It is probable that the individual will present a risk of personal injury to the individual or to another individual in the future and the individual:

(A) has a mental illness (as defined in IC 12-7-2-130) that may be controlled by medication, and has not demonstrated a pattern of voluntarily and consistently taking the individual’s medication while not under supervision; or

(B) is the subject of documented evidence that would give rise to a reasonable belief that the individual has a propensity for violent or suicidal conduct.

(b) The fact that an individual has been released from a mental health facility or has a mental illness that is currently controlled by medication does not establish that the individual is dangerous for the purposes of this chapter.
