Princeton Daily Clarion had an article about Bryan Dillman, a certified nursing assistant at Good Samaritan Home and Rehabilitation Center in Oakland City, charged with choking and punching one of the facility’s vulnerable residents. He was arrested for a felony battery charge after police were called in reference to a battery with injury on a woman living at the home.
According to an affidavit for probable cause, a nurse at the home, Sharlet Sillz, found Dillman asleep in DeeAnn Hoffman’s recliner in her room. Silz admitted in her affidaivt that she told Dillman she would not report him because "she knows that he is tired and that he has kids." Hoffman, who had been undergoing a test, went back to her room. Sillz then told police she heard Hoffman yelling "please don’t hurt me" and Sillz heard a smacking noise coming from Hoffman’s room. Dillman then quickly walked away and Sillz went into the room. According to the affidavit, Hoffman said to Sillz that Dillman had tried to choke her and hit her numerous times in the face.
After police spoke with Hoffman, she said she had told Dillman she was ready for a shower when Dillman jumped out of a chair, got behind her and put both hands around her neck and choked her. Dillman punched her in the face with his fist. The affidavit says Dillman is 6-foot, 1-inch, and weighs 225 pounds.
