Colin W. Estes, 27 is a court mandated Alcoholics Anonymous member in Anderson, Indiana AA General Service Area 22 (http://www.area22indiana.org/) District 83 (http://www.area22indiana.org/district.html). In 2005 Estes was mandated to AA for a drinking related charge in Madison County and has repeatedly been sent back to jail for probation violations. Mandated to the Madison County Intergroup Area (http://www.madisoncountyintergroup.org/) Estes was arrested Thursday February 21, 2013 after terrorizing 2 women and found standing over the bloody body of one of them by police.
When reading this story, please remember that part of being an Alcoholics Anonymous member is the active recruitment of member from jails and prisons under their "Corrections" and "Hospital and Institutions" (H&I) committees which every AA Intergroup participates in. It is unbelievable that Alcoholics Anonymous General Service Area 22, District 83 would actively recruit people like Colin W. Estes to be a member of their group.
Police: Man found over bloodied woman

ANDERSON, Ind. — A man faces felony charges after allegedly attacking two women and taking their cellphones to prevent them from calling police on Thursday night.
Colin W. Estes, 27, of Anderson, was allegedly found by police standing on top of one of the victims, who was covered in blood, in his home in the 3100 block of Fletcher Street, according to a probable cause affidavit of the incident.
The victim was transported from the house to St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital for medical treatment.
The incident allegedly began about 7:30 p.m., when the women talked about wanting to go the a bar. Estes allegedly “snapped” and started punching the woman he was later found standing over, according to the report.
The other woman had managed to get out of the house and contact police about Estes’ alleged behavior. Officers arrived and the woman told them, “he is beating her inside,” according to the report.
The woman told police the victim had tried to leave the house but was allegedly physically kept inside by Estes against her will, according to the affidavit.
Police restrained Estes and allegedly found his cellphone along with the cellphones of the two women. He later told officers he had taken the phones to keep the women from calling police, according to the report.
Estes faces charges of criminal confinement, battery and interference with reporting of a crime.
Estes, who has been in and out of jail since 2005 and has struggled with alcohol abuse, was just released from in-home detention in December, according to public records.
Estes pleaded guilty to alcohol-related charges for an incident in 2005. As part of his probation, Estes was court ordered to keep a sobrietor monitoring device, attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, find work and undergo substance abuse evaluation. Estes was sent back to jail after violating probation in 2006 and again in 2007, according to public records.
