Dog Comes To Aid In Domestic Battery

On 11/23/17 at approximately 8:12p.m. the Wabash County Sheriff's Office received a call from a third party requesting the police to 15596 E. 1280 Rd. Mt. Carmel, for an unknown problem. 

Once the deputy arrived he found a man laying outside the residence whom advised he had been beaten up and bitten by a dog. The male was identified as 52 year old Alvin Addison of Mt. Carmel.  EMS was contacted for the intoxicated Addison whom later refused medical treatment.  Further investigation revealed that an argument had occurred earlier in the evening and Addison is accused of grabbing a female family member by the neck and pushing her onto the bed.  When another female family member tried to intervene Addison is accused of grabbing her by the hair and banging her head into a cabinet multiple times.  At that point is when Addison was bitten by the dog whom was trying to come to the aid of the female. 

Addison was transported to the Wabash County Jail where he was charged with Domestic Battery, 2 counts, with bond being set at $3,000 cash.  Addison remains in custody.
