Just Another Day in Indianapolis: Man Beats Wife While Children Call 911 From Closet

Surprisingly, this was reported in the news. It isn't often these cases get noticed. Wanna bet daddy will get custody of the children, and mommy will get supervised visitation, if any at all? This is Standard Operating Procedure in most Indiana courts now, to give the abuser custody of the children and to limit's mother's contact so she cannot discuss the horrible abuse that the children witnessed. Instead, Indiana children can experience their own horrors of life with the abuser.

NEW WHITELAND, Ind. (WISH) - A man was arrested in New Whiteland Sunday night after badly beating his wife in front of the couple’s children, police say.

The two children hid in a closet in a back bedroom while calling 911. The incident happened at about 11 p.m. Sunday.

According to police, Timothy Brown was holding the front door closed on officers. Three officers responded and two used a stun gun on Brown.

When police got inside, Brown’s wife was unconscious on the couch. She was taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Brown was taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital after making suicidal comments, but was later transferred to jail.

Police say Brown has had domestic issues in the past. New Whiteland Police Sgt. Dave Glaze said it’s the worst case of domestic violence he’s seen in his 23 years on the department.

Police escorted the two children out of the house with a blanket over their heads so they couldn’t see their injured mom or their dad in handcuffs.
