INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The I-Team 8 exclusive investigation continues in the case of a Danville police officer arrested for violating terms of his release in a domestic battery case.
I-Team 8 has obtained video showing Officer Chris Gill that is part of the evidence that prompted police to charge him for the incident with his now ex-wife. Now there is new information on an officer with mounting complaints against him.
Officer Chris Gill has been under fire from several departments including Danville police where internal affairs is investigating complaints from those he arrested.
Gill walked into the Vigo County courthouse with hands and feet shackled. His bond revoked and then raised to $100,000 for domestic battery after he never turned in his gun when suspended which is why the US Marshals arrested him when he landed at the airport Wednesday.
Chris Gill's ex-wife, Teresa, says she endured abuse on a regular basis while married to the officer. The probable cause describes an instance in 2010 in a park as the two were going through a divorce.
The probable cause shows, "Gill slammed Teresa's leg in the car door and started yelling and screaming." Pictures documented "...bruising and swelling to Teresa's left leg and bruising to both of her arms."
I-Team 8 obtained a video of Chris Gill screaming and ranting with his then 2 1/2 year old son in the front seat of the car. He ramps up his actions when he realizes Teresa is videotaping the entire incident.
The probable cause also transcribes a text message from Gill to his then wife.
"I'm gonna do whatever it takes to (expletive) up your life. I am a (FYI) am a cop, they won't believe you. Do as I say. Have them drop Op and I will stop."
Teresa, according to photos and court documents, left with bruises, contusions, swelling. Gill remained an officer in Danville, his father police chief until fired a week ago for reasons unknown. But Chris Gill was suspended without pay pending an internal affairs investigation.
Gill is a trained fighter, posting Youtube videos. His Facebook profile picture changed August 11, showing he spent the weekend in Dallas.
I-Team 8 has learned he was there to be inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame for law enforcement. He confirmed that verbally on his way into court Thursday. He was arrested Wednesday by US Marshals when he landed back in Indianapolis.
Walking into the courthouse Thursday, Gill was asked if he was surprised the US Marshals picked him up. He muttered, "You might say that." Gill's bond now requires the full $100,000 must be paid in cash for him to get out of jail. His ex-wife says she lives in fear he could get out. She has a restraining order against him.
