WARSAW — A Warsaw woman was recently arrested after allegedly battering a man with a baseball bat.
Lisa Frances Keough, 50, 123 E. Fort Wayne St., Warsaw, is charged with battery with a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony; battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, a level 6 felony; and resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor.
On Dec. 4, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department went to a residence to investigate a report of battery. A man at the scene said he was attempting to sneak his children out of a window when a woman, identified as Keough, hit him in the head with a baseball bat.
According to court documents, the man and Keough had been arguing all day at the residence. The man then left and later returned to the scene in order to get his girlfriend and his children out of the residence so they could stay elsewhere.
In an attempt to avoid a confrontation with Keough, the man went to a bedroom window and began taking the children out of the home. Keough then allegedly entered the room with a baseball bat, leaned out the window and struck the man in the head with the bat.
When two officers informed Keough she was being arrested for battery, Keough refused to go with the officers, forcibly resisting being handcuffed and refused to walk to the police car.
Keough has already been arrested and released on her own recognizance. She has an initial hearing at 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, in Kosciusko Superior Two Court. A no-contact order has also been established between Keough and the man.
