GREENFIELD — A deputy who was arrested last week after an alleged violent outburst at the home of a woman he’d been dating has a history of domestic disputes, one of which is now being re-investigated by a special prosecutor.
Special Prosecutor Craig Martin of Shelby County, who is handling the criminal case against Deputy Scott Roeger, has requested a report from June 2012 involving Roeger and the same woman whose house Roeger is accused of breaking into on Oct. 6.
Martin contacted McCordsville police about obtaining the 2012 report after being appointed to prosecute the Oct. 6 case, Chief Harold Rodgers said.
“He has pulled (it) and said he’s tying it into this (recent) case,” he said.
Roeger is on paid suspension amid allegations he broke into the McCordsville home of a woman he was dating, in the middle of the night, and became enraged when he found another man at her house. Police reports indicate Roeger told the man he was “done for” and began punching glass picture frames hanging on the walls, splattering blood when he cut his hand.
Roeger is charged with residential entry, a Class D felony, as well as intimidation and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors.
A domestic dispute between the pair occurred at the same address in June 2012, though details of that report are not being released for now.
