Investigators say Gillim then crashed his vehicle into two cars that were parked near the Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area.
Witnesses at the scene watched as the female passenger emerged from the vehicle and then collapsed. When Gillim exited the vehicle and saw bystanders calling 911, he fled the scene into a nearby wooded area leaving the injured woman behind.
The woman was rushed to Johnson Memorial Hospital where she was treated for injuries mostly received during the beating she endured from Gillim.
Deputies located Gilliam after following him into the woods with a k-9 unit. He was then transported to a local hospital where he was treated for a bite wound received from the k-9 during the chase.
He was then booked into the Johnson County Jail and charged with driving while intoxicated, operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing endangerment, operating while intoxicated causing injury, domestic battery, leaving the scene of an accident causing injury, resisting law enforcement, criminal confinement and criminal recklessness with a vehicle.
