Updated: Monday, December 16 2013, 05:01 PM EST
AURORA, Ind. (Brad Underwood) -- Aurora's police chief is locked up after being accused of beating up his wife.

Police Chief Bryan Fields was arrested early Sunday morning. He faces a domestic battery charge. Indiana State Police troopers and Dearborn County Sheriffs deputies arrived at the Field's residence at about 4 a.m. responding to a reported domestic disturbance.

ISP say 42-year-old Bryan Fields and his wife, 42-year-old Holly were in a physical confrontation when they arrived. Next door neighbor Sherry Zinser says shes known Bryan for a decade and cant believe what has happened. It just makes me very sad, Bryan is a wonderful man, I can't wrap my mind around it, it really doesn't seem possible to me, said Zinser.

Holly was transported to Dearborn County Hospital, Bryan was arrested and booked.  The ISP say the investigation is ongoing and could result in similar charges against Holly Fields. However Holly says what's being said about her husband isn't true. "I'm fine," said Holly Fields"

Fields did have a bandage on her wrist and seem shaken up at her home Sunday night. My prayers are with him and if it's true my prayers are still with him because none of us are perfect, said Zinser.

This is not the first time an Aurora police officer or the chief have been in trouble with the law. In 2009, former police chief Dana cotton was arrested for felony theft, but later made a plea deal serving probation for conflict of interest. In 2010, assistant police chief Dennis Lewis was charged for child solicitation. Also in 2010, officer Brett Hamilton was arrested for sexually harassing women and in 2008 officer Jared Dausch was arrested for beating his fiance.

Dearborn county prosecutor Aaron Negangard says fields will go before a judge later this week.
