Man jailed on battery charges

Follow Daily Journal:

A man was arrested after police said he choked and hit a woman multiple times inside her Greenwood apartment.

Jordan Adams, 27, Franklin, was arrested on two charges of domestic battery and charges of strangulation, criminal confinement, intimidation and battery.

Police were called to an apartment in the 1600 block of Library Boulevard after a neighbor reported hearing a fight. Adams answered the door and had several cuts and was covered in blood, according to the police report.

Officers talked with a woman inside the apartment, who said that Adams began hitting her after she started to pour out a bottle of vodka she found, the report said. Adams banged her head against a wall, hit her in the face and head, and threw her on a couch and starting choking her, the report said.

While Adams was choking her, she started punching his face and arms to get him to let go, the report said. She ran into the bedroom with her 6-year-old child. When police arrived, Adams wouldn’t let her leave the room to answer the door and told her he was going to kill her, the report said.

Adams said he didn’t know what happened and told an officer that he might be bloody due to allergies, the report said. A test showed his blood-alcohol content was .346 percent, more than four times the limit to be considered too intoxicated to drive.

Adams, 876 Glendale Drive, was taken to the Johnson County jail and held on $150,000 bond.

While strangulation means the act of killing by squeezing the throat, Indiana law defines it as intentionally applying pressure to another person’s throat or obstructing their nose or mouth.
