Aurora panel to consider police chief's future

AURORA, IN (FOX19) -

An Aurora city government panel will meet Wednesday in executive session to discuss the employment status of Aurora Police Bryan Fields who was arrested during the weekend.

Fields, 42, of Aurora, was charged with one count of domestic battery and two counts of battery. All are class A misdemeanors that are punishable by a maximum of a year in prison.

The Aurora Board of Works' executive session is 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Aurora City Building. In addition to his future as a employee, the board will discuss Fields' alleged misconduct. A public meeting follows the executive session.

"Due to the sensitive nature of these types of cases that involve potential employee discipline procedures and heightened media attention, the City of Aurora will provide no additional or official public comment on this case until further investigation is conducted and any further formal action is taken, by the city's Board of Public Works," a statement from the city said.

Fields was arraigned Tuesday in Dearborn County Superior Court 1. He was released from the Dearborn County jail Tuesday on a $500 bond.

Authorities responded to reports of a domestic disturbance at Fields' home around 4 a.m. Sunday. Fields and his wife Holly, 42, were engaged in a physical confrontation when officers arrived. Holly Fields was transported to Dearborn County Hospital.

A special prosecutor -- Ripley County Prosecutor Richard Hertel -- is now handling the case.

A pre-trial hearing is Jan. 30. A bench trial is scheduled for March 4.
