BG man arrested after spitting on officer


A Bowling Green man was arrested after spitting on a police officer and resisting arrest.

On Tuesday shortly after 11:30 p.m., Bowling Green police were called to a group home in the 100 block of Ada Avenue for an assault.

The caretaker told officers a resident had assaulted her. She said Joshua John Kline had spit in her face after becoming upset when she told him to move items off the front porch, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

Officers got Kline to leave his locked bedroom and he admitted to spitting on the caretaker, who wanted to file assault charges.

As officers attempted to handcuff Kline, he tensed his body and refused to put his arms behind his back, according to the report. He then allegedly spit directly into one officer’s face.

Officers took Kline to the ground, got his handcuffed then put a spit hood over his head.

Kline, 21, was arrested for assault, harassment with a bodily substance and resisting arrest.

He was taken to jail, where he remained Wednesday with a $35,000 bond, 10% allowed.
