ELMWOOD PLACE, OH (FOX19) - Elmwood Place Mayor Bill Wilson and his husband, village maintenance supervisor Bill Smith, were arrested after a drunken fight at home, according to a press release.

Both are charged with domestic violence and disorderly conduct by intoxication, and Wilson is charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest after he twice tried to run from police, the release states.

Wilson called Elmwood Place police officers to the residence at 527 Maple St. When they arrived, they found the men intoxicated with eye injuries from punches and scratches from broken glass that they were rolling on, according to the release.

The men reportedly persisted in drunken disorderly behavior after being told to stop and were arrested.

Elmwood Place police then called on St. Bernard police for assistance with the men's arrest because both men work in the village administration, the release states.

Wilson continued his disorderly behavior in public, according to police, and caused alarm among neighbors. He ran inside the home away from officers and later attempted to run again as Elmwood medics checked on him.

Both men were taken to the Hamilton County Jail. They will be arraigned at 9 a.m. Monday in Hamilton County Justice Center Room A.
