(BLOOMFIELD) - A Springville man was arrested on a warrant Thursday.

24-year-old Adam Tibbett will be charged with two counts of battery resulting in serious bodily injury.

According to Bloomfield Police the incident happened on November 22 at a home on North Cold Springs Road. Police received two 911 calls reporting a fight.

When officers arrived, they found a man bleeding from his head and face and having trouble breathing and chest pains. The man was taken to Greene County General Hospital and transferred to IU Health Hospital Bloomington with fractured ribs and a punctured lung.'

According to a probable cause affidavit, Tibbett, who had been drinking was verbally abusive to three children and then became physically abusive pushing one child to the ground. The victim said something to Tibbett and that is when he threw a partially full can of beer at the victim, then got on top of him, hitting him in the side of the head and kneeing him in the side.

Two female family members pulled Tibbett off the victim. The victim then went to his truck and retrieved a handgun and ran Tibbett out of the house.

Once Tibbett was outside the home the victim fired one warning shot into the air. Tibbet, who was a passenger in a vehicle, fled the scene. Police were unable to locate Tibbett after the incident thus a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Tibbett is also being held in jail on a Writ of Attachment issued out of another county.
