Clarksville firefighter suspended without pay after arrest

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Clarksville firefighter has been suspended without pay after he was arrested earlier this week. 

Charles Edelen is accused of pepper spaying an infant, his estranged wife, and her boyfriend, who is also the child's father.

The police report also states Edelen attacked the boyfriend and held a gun to his head.

Edelen's Lawyer, Larry Wilder, plans to appeal the decision, saying there's a story behind the story.

"When you have a man whose wife he's not divorced from yet is in his home with her boyfriend and the child that she has given birth to that is the boyfriend's -- there's a lot of stress there I'm sure," said Wilder.

Edelen is expected in court Monday morning.
