Additional Information

     The charge stems from a sheriff’s office investigation in the early morning hours March 23 after dispatch received a 911 call from a female screaming for help. Approximately 30 minutes prior to the call, a deputy investigated a domestic incident on NE 601 Road, Osceola, involving Kreisler and a female that resides with him. It was noted the female repeatedly screamed for help saying she was bleeding and a male subject could be heard yelling in the background.

     When the deputy arrived, Kreisler was in the living room, but a female was not in sight. Blood was found in a bedroom of the residence. While waiting for additional units to assist, a female approached the back door and motioned for the deputy to come outside. She was crying, visibly shaken, bleeding from her nose, and had several marks on her face.

     The female explained Kreisler grabbed her by the hair, pulled her off the couch, slammed her face in the floor, and repeatedly struck her in the face with his fist. Kreisler was taken into custody and transported to the St. Clair County Jail.
