Dad arrested for assaulting kids, possessing meth (Gering, Nebraska)

I'm thinking ADAM ELWESS is a single and/or custodial father. Notice that there is no mention of a mother in the home. What happened to Mom?

Gering man arrested for child abuse and meth

Bond has been set at 10 percent of $70,000 for a Gering man who is charged with child abuse and possession of methamphetamine.

30-year-old Adam Elwess is accused of assaulting his 5 and 7 year old children.

On Monday, Detective James Jackson was called to the children's school because Elwess' 5 year old son had scratch marks on his chin and face. The child told school officials that his father kicked him from behind and that he fell into a chair and the ground.

Elwess' 7 year old daughter says that her father grabbed her by the throat and picked her up off the ground.

 Police went to Elwess' home, and also found methamphetamine.

Elwess is charged with two counts of child abuse, and one count of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
