Paoli man arrested for battering his motherMay 11, 2020
From Local Sources
An Indiana State Police trooper responded to the Harrison County Hospital in Corydon Sunday to investigate a battery that had occurred in Orange County.
During the investigation it was discovered that Jerry Archer, 45, of Paoli had battered his 62-year-old mother on Saturday. The battery continued through the night and into the next morning resulting in injuries over her entire body.
According to the victim's statement, Archer also ripped her hair out, held a gun to her head and put a knife to her throat and threated to kill her multiple times during the incident. Later in the day, the victim convinced Archer to let her leave so she could visit her mother since it was Mother’s Day. Once he let her leave, she went to the Harrison County Hospital to receive medical treatment for her injuries.
After reviewing the victim's injuries and her statements, the trooper immediately set up an arrest team that consisted of the Indiana State Police, Orange County Sheriff’s Department and the Paoli Police.
Around 10:45 p.m., the multi-agency team located Archer at 615 Walnut St. in Paoli. Archer was taken into custody without incident.
He was booked into the Orange County Jail on local warrants as well as multiple charges including felony intimidation, confinement, and strangulation.
Additional charges are expected.
