Elwood Common Council President Charged with Battery

Timothy Roby is accused of grabbing a man by the throat and threatening to throw him out a window.

ELWOOD, Ind. -- The president of the Elwood Common Council turned himself in at the Madison Co. Jail after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Timothy A. Roby, 61, is charged with battery. 

Roby is accused of grabbing Michael Bell by the throat during an argument Sept. 29 at the Elwood Youth Football Field, reports The Herald Bulletin.

Witnesses said Roby grabbed Bell and threatened to, "throw him out a window" after Bell called him a liar.

During an interview with investigators, Roby didn't deny grabbing Bell and "admitted he made a mistake," court documents say.

Roby turned himself in Monday morning and was later released on bond.
