By Liz Shepherd
NORTH WEBSTER — A North Webster man was arrested after allegedly giving a woman a black eye.
Billy Taylor Schroll, 30, 8268 E. Wade Lane, North Webster, is charged with domestic battery with a child under 16 present, a level 6 felony; and domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Feb. 11, a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a domestic incident in which Schroll allegedly blackened a woman’s eye and put knots on her head.
Upon arrival at the scene, the deputy saw a woman placing two children into a vehicle. According to court documents, the woman had three bumps on the right side of her face and a red mark under her eye. The woman told the deputy she fell but one of the children told her not to lie. Both children then pleaded with the woman to speak with the deputy about what happened.
Schroll was taken into custody at the scene. When he asked why he was going to jail, the deputy said he did not feel comfortable leaving when both children said Schroll hit the woman.
Schroll told the deputy he wasn’t going to call the children liars and said “I wished I had not done that in front of them.”
Schroll has been arrested and released on his own recognizance. He has an initial hearing at 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, in Kosciusko Superior Court Three.
