A Bowling Green man has been arrested for menacing after he allegedly “jumped” a woman.
On Friday around 5:30 p.m., Bowling Green police responded to the 100 block of Ada Avenue for a careworker who said she was “jumped’ by Joshua Kline, 21, and locked out of the home.
The careworker told police that she brought her dog over Thursday night so Kline could interact with it. He tried to give the dog a bath in the sink and turned on the hot water. The careworker retrieved the dog after it yelped and barked after being burned, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
On Friday, Kline got upset because the careworker refused to bring her dog back. Kline allegedly became aggressive, jumped on the careworker and tried to bite her arm after they fell to the floor, according to the report.
When the careworker pushed him off and went outside, Kline swung at her, missed, and locked the door.
Officers spoke with Kline through his bedroom window. He admitted he accidentally had the hot water on the previous night when he gave the dog a bath, and later in the police cruiser said he hoped the careworker was OK, according to the report.
He was charged with menacing and was taken to jail, where he remained Monday on a $2,500 bond (10% allowed).
