BG man arrested for violating protection order


A Bowling Green man was arrested last week for violating a protection order and was taken to jail.

On Thursday around 1:30 a.m., Bowling Green police were dispatched to the 800 block of East Napoleon Road on a report of a man and woman arguing. The caller said the couple left in a red Mercedes.

A traffic stop was initiated in the alley between Seventh and Eighth streets, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

The driver was identified as Darnell Johnson, 20, Bowling Green, and the passenger was identified as Monique Perkins, 20, Fremont.

Dispatch advised there was a temporary protection order in place between the two. Perkins was identified as the protected person.

The odor of marijuana was detected and a probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted, according to the report. A rolled blunt containing 1.1 grams of raw marijuana was found in the driver’s door and a jar full of burnt roaches was found in the center console, according to the report.

Johnson was placed in handcuffs and allegedly became angry and began to speak aggressively to officers.

Perkins reportedly refused to identify herself and refused the exit the vehicle.

Johnson was arrested for violation of a protection order and possession of marijuana and was taken to jail.

He was released Friday on an own recognizance bond. He was placed on a GPS monitor and was ordered to not get within a half mile of the alleged victim.

Perkins was cited for disorderly conduct.
