Man charged with burglary
An Evarts man is facing multiple charges, including burglary, after allegedly kicking in a door to a residence that had children inside.
Brandon Shackleford, 31, was arrested on Saturday by Kentucky State Police Trooper Sidney Wagner.
According to the citation, Wagner responded to a complaint advising Shackleford had kicked in a door to a residence with people inside. Wagner located him standing inside the residence with a female screaming at him to get out. Wagner told Shackleford to step outside the residence, but Shackleford allegedly replied “no” and took an aggressive stance. Shackleford was then assisted to the ground. While Wagner was attempting to restrain him, Shackleford attempted to place his arm under his body. Wagner detected a strong alcohol odor, and said Shackleford was belligerent and his speech was slurred. Three children were present during the incident.
Shackleford was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree disorderly conduct, endangering the welfare of a minor, menacing, resisting arrest, alcohol intoxication in a public place and violation of a Kentucky EPO.
Shackleford was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on multiple full cash bonds totaling $2,050.
