A charge of criminal mischief was filed for an alleged incident on September 8 when the woman called to report her ex-boyfriend, Kyle, was breaking her bedroom window.

When an officer arrived he said Kyle was leaving the scene and officers stopped him.

She said Kyle grabbed her and threw her against his truck, then threw her into a bushy tree, causing cuts and one branch went into her ear.

Police said when the arrived, Kyle told the woman to tell them everything was fine because he didn’t want to go back to prison for assaulting her again.

Kyle has five arrests dating back to 2004 for family violence or assault in addition to terroristic threats, violation of protective orders and child endangerment.
