On Friday evening at approximately 11:30 p.m. an IMPD Sergeant was sent to the Marathon gas station at Thompson RD and Arlington Ave. reference an allegation of domestic violence that occurred earlier in the day at an undisclosed location. When it was discovered that one of the involved parties was an IMPD Probationary Officer, detectives from IMPD’s Special Investigation Unit (SIU) were requested for further investigation. After being questioned by SIU investigators, Probationary Officer Christopher Charles was arrested and transported to the Arrestee Processing Center for processing on suspicion of Battery and Domestic Battery.
