Officers with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office found Christopher Andrighetti hiding in a bedroom closet when responding for the report of abuse. The 39-year-old, who was covered in blood from "self-inflicted lacerations" to his arms and waist, was arrested and charged with first-degree domestic violence, assault and child abuse.

Police arrived at 100 Town and Country Trailer Park, which is just outside the city limits of Russellville, for the report of a man beating his daughter. There, deputies found broken beer bottles outside, other things that have been cut up, a broken Nintendo Switch and several drops of blood outside the trailer's door.
