(JASPER)  A Loogootee man was arrested Friday night as a result of an investigation into the battery of a nine month old infant. 

On July 30, Troopers with the Jasper Post received a complaint of a possible battery on a nine month old boy.

Medical personnel at Memorial Hospital indicated that the boy had sustained an injury to his genitalia that consisted of bleeding and swelling. In working with the Indiana Child Protective Services, Troopers were able to determine the suspect, Arvel R. Griffey, Jr., 24, Loogootee, had battered the child while in a car while Griffey was being taken back to the Dubois County Community Corrections Center. 

After conferring with the Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office, Troopers had probable cause to arrest Griffey tonight at the Dubois County Community Corrections Center. He was arrested without incident and transported to the Dubois County Jail. He is being held without bond.
