A Columbus man was arrested Monday after a family fight turned violent, according to police.

Bartholomew County deputies were called to a dispute at a home on County Road 50W at about 1:43 p.m. yesterday afternoon. A woman said she had been battered and stopped from leaving the home by 37-year-old Bradley Burgan, according to police reports.

Deputies say that an argument the night before spilled over into a physical fight. Burgan then allegedly left with her two-year-old son.

Deputies were still on scene when Burgan returned with the child. He was arrested on preliminary charges of domestic battery in the presence of a minor and criminal confinement.
