INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A Danville police officer is behind bars, arrested as he arrived at the Indianapolis International Airport.
Officer Chris Gill, who is suspended without pay, is now in jail because of pending domestic battery charges in Vigo County.
U.S. Marshals were waiting for Gill when he landed just after 11 a.m. Tuesday. Gill was taken immediately to Vigo County where he was booked on $100,000 bond.
This was a bond revocation. Bond was reset at $100,000 because he violated a condition of his release -- possession of a gun. Court records show after he was suspended his duty weapon was not turned in, rather another weapon was there in it's place.
Gill goes on trial soon in Vigo County for domestic battery in 2010, as he and his then wife were going through a divorce.
The probable cause describes a day in the park as he was seeing his 2-year-old son. It says, "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."
It also transcribes a text message from Gill to his wife that reads, "I'm gonna do whatever it takes to (expletive) up your life. I had to save my (expletive) and get the restraining order. So what, prove I hit myself in the head, try Teresa. I am a (FYI) am a cop, they won't believe you. Do as I say. Have them drop Op and I will stop."
An OP is a protective order she placed against Gill. Gill has been under fire from several departments including Danville where internal affairs was investigating complaints against him from those he arrested.
His father, Keith Gill, was just fired as Danville police chief. As for his ex-wife, Teresa told I-Team 8 being married to a cop, her pleas for help to other officers went unheard for years. She said of her ex-husband, "I want only the truth about these so called "protectors," police officers to be known. These types of police officers make good ones look untrustworthy."
Police dispatchers in Morgan County say a crash closed both directions of Mann Road on Friday morning.
The snow heading toward Central Indiana comes during a major weekend in downtown Indianapolis.
