Man charged with third-degree assault of a police officer

Jacob Kerr, 20, Gibson Lane, Richmond, is charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, menacing, third-degree assault of a police officer and fourth-degree assault (domestic violence/minor injury) after being arrested by Richmond Police.

According to a citation, officers responded to a domestic violence incident in progress which was both verbal and physical. While police officers were on the way to the scene, they received information that Kerr was seen punching a car window and then removing the victim from the drivers seat back into a residence.

When police made contact with Kerr, he allegedly began yelling and creating a scene. The citation states a strong odor of alcohol was coming off of Kerr. While officers spoke to Kerr, they allegedly could hear the victim inside crying. Kerr then told an officer he was going inside the residence to get a cigarette. However, the officer told Kerr that he would get the cigarette instead, and for Kerr to stay outside. Kerr allegedly disobeyed this order and pushed back inside the residence and obtained a cigarette.

According to the citation, when police made it to the living room, Kerr turned to an officer and clenched his fists. Kerr was ordered to step back but disobeyed. Officers then attempted to put Kerr in handcuffs and he resisted and pulled away. While resisting, Kerr was given orders to stop but didn't. While cuffing Kerr, one officer was struck in the chest and another was struck in their arm numerous times.

Kerr was then taken to a police car and resisted, having to be forcibly put into the vehicle. He was then taken to the Madison Detention Center while the other officer completed the investigation.

After speaking with the victim, police allegedly gathered Kerr had become severely intoxicated throughout the day and a verbal argument escalated. Kerr allegedly pushed the victim twice causing injuries to her left side. The victim told police that she had tried to leave during the altercation when Kerr took her car keys and threw them against the parking lot and broke them into several pieces. The victim said she was sitting in her car at the time, attempting to make a call when Kerr came back outside and forcibly removed her from the vehicle and carried her back inside and placed her in a chair. He then went back outside and got into the altercation with law enforcement.

Kerr was arrested on Saturday and taken to the Madison County Detention Center. As of Oct. 14 he has not been released.
