A Hopkinsville man was arrested just after 11:30 p.m. Saturday while at a home in the 400 block of Bryan Street after allegedly breaking into the home of his ex-girlfriend and causing a disturbance, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.
The report states police were called to a home in the 400 block of Bryan Street in reference to a disturbance. Upon officers’ arrival, they reportedly observed a man standing in the front yard of the home.
The man was identified as Nathaniel Nelson, 48, Hopkinsville, and was determined to be under the influence of alcohol, the report said. Nelson reportedly had slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet.
Nelson allegedly told police that his ex-girlfriend, who lived at the home on Bryan Street, had struck him in the head with an object.
Upon speaking with the ex, she allegedly advised police that Nelson had been attempting to call her all day and that she had been ignoring his calls, the report stated.
Nelson later arrived at the home unexpectedly banging on her storm door. The woman reportedly opened the front door, but let the storm door closed and locked. Nelson then allegedly forced the storm door open and entered her home.
The victim allegedly attempted to push Nelson out of her home, but Nelson refused to leave before she reportedly grabbed a Christmas ornament and struck him in the face, leaving a small cut on his face, according to the report.
During the altercation, the victim got one of her fingers smashed in the door, causing her finger to bleed. However, she refused medical treatment, the report added.
Nelson was transported to Jennie Stuart Health and was treated for his injuries before being arrested by police.
Nelson was charged with second-degree burglary and alcohol intoxication in a public place.
