A Gibson County was arrested early Sunday morning and is accused of beating his ex-wife.

Indiana State Police say around 3:30 a.m., a trooper and a deputy from the Gibson Count Sheriff's Office responded to the 600 block of Concord Drive in Princeton to investigate a battery complaint. 

While approaching the residence, the trooper says he heard 40-year-old Russell Griesemer inside the garage yelling, and his 39-year-old ex-wife, screaming.

Authorities saw Russell kick the woman, who was lying on the floor. After kicking her, he attempted to drag her by the hair while hitting her.

State police say the couple is currently divorced, but have been living together.

An ambulance was summoned, but the woman refused any further medical treatment.

Russell Griesemer was arrested and is currently being held on bond in the Gibson County Jail.
