On Thursday, September 21st, an arrest warrant was issue by the Dubois County Circuit Court for Grider.  Werne and Master Trooper Brian LaRoche arrested Grider this morning at his place of employment in Saint Anthony.

On August 29, 2017, Detective Brock Werne received a complaint from Memorial Hospital in Jasper, regarding a 2-month-old child being brought in with multiple injuries. 

Medical staff informed Werne and Detective Sergeant Juli Schnell that the child had suffered a broken collarbone and arm, both on the right side, and a bruised right ear.

Werne and Schnell learned that days prior to the 29th, the child’s father, 24-year-old Trent Grider of Dubois, Grider had pulled the child out of a car seat by the right arm.  The action was with enough force to cause the child’s right arm and collarbone to break.
