Police Commander Arrested On Battery Charge

Associated Press

August 01, 2011

CHARLESTOWN, Ind.— State police say a top commander in a southern Indiana sheriff’s department has been arrested on domestic battery charges after his wife reported being beaten by him.

Troopers arrested Lt. Col. John Shelton of the Clark County Sheriff’s Department at his home in Charlestown early Sunday.

Clark County Sheriff Danny Rodden tells the Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., (http://bit.ly/qL4ULJ ) that the 57-year-old Shelton is the department’s second-shift commander. The sheriff says Shelton spent the night in jail before being released without bail with orders from a judge to stay away from his wife.

Rodden says he plans to meet with Shelton on Monday to discuss the confrontation and decide what to do next.

Shelton couldn’t be reached for comment because no phone number was listed for him.

    Thats all you need is the accusation. Its not whether your guilty or innocent if someone wants to get even with you all they have to do is "MAKE THE ACCUSATION, in itself it can ruin a persons life, career, friendships, family, neighbours and how they view you after they find out and they don't ask "IS IT TRUE" I have first-hand experience with a member of my family that was ACCUSED so a 14 YO can run round with her friends instead of staying home like her parents wanted her to do so she decided to accused her father of sexual molestation, and altho she retracted her accusation it came a little too late, the damage was done !!Everyone looks at you differently wondering did he or didn't he. Even the ones that knew him for years and people he worked with and the company he was with for 17 years just from an "ACCUSATION" I hope that Chief has a real good Attorney and good friends and family who will be there for him...

    The battery capacity in Ah gives an idea of how much cureent (A) it can deliver. The 95Ah one is capable of delivering a constant 5A current for 19 hours (5 * 19 = 95) or 10A for 9.5 hours or any other combination.

    A friend of mine was arrested the other day for his second DUI in 11 years, shortly there after he was arrested for domestic violence.

    If she's lying, I hope she never sleeps a full night again, she is taking down a man's career out of spite or whatever the reason. If it's true, he knew better. I am eager to see what comes from this.

    This is a VERY old news and nobody has posted an update. Without the outcome or a serious update, this topic is dead and should remain that way.

    My ex-wife attempted to get me fired from a Security gig I had for Domestic Violence. I was served at my place of employment with a TRO. I obviously obeyed the order However, this hits too close to home. All I can say to Cmdr. Shelton is get a Lawyer and divorce her
