Hendricks County cop to appear in Vigo court after being arrested Wednesday

TERRE HAUTE — A Hendricks County police officer is scheduled to appear in Vigo Superior Court 5 today, more than a year after he was charged in connection with an alleged domestic battery case that reportedly occurred in Deming Park in 2010.

Christopher J. Gill, 31, was arrested Wednesday by the U.S. Marshal Service after returning to Indiana from a trip to Texas. He was lodged in the Vigo County Jail with bail set at $100,000.

A bond revocation hearing is set for today.

Gill, who had posted bond and was not in police custody, last appeared in Division 5 court in August 2012, to challenge a protective order requested by his ex-wife, who lives in Terre Haute. At that time, Judge Michael Rader granted the protective order and set a September 2012, trial date on a class-D felony charge of domestic battery. That trial date has been continued to this coming September.

During the hearing in August 2012, Rader noted that the case against Gill had been pending in Vigo Superior Court 4 since the criminal charge was filed in July 2010. That misdemeanor case had been dismissed by the court on the defendant’s motion, but an appeal was filed by Prosecutor Terry Modesitt with the Indiana Appeals Court. The misdemeanor case was then transferred to Vigo Superior Court 5.

According to information filed in the case, the criminal charge stems from the allegation that Gill grabbed his estranged wife’s arm and shut a car door on her lower leg at the conclusion of a child visitation in April 2010.

At the time of the incident, Gill was employed by the Danville Police Department in Hendricks County, where his father was the police chief. A telephone inquiry to that police department on Wednesday confirmed that Gill has been placed on administrative leave, but is still an employee.
