A Florida man was arrested for domestic violence
Madison Police have a Florida man in custody for domestic violence and a number of traffic violations following an incident on Grandview Boulevard yesterday evening.
Keith L. Green, age 25, of Lauderhill, Florida, has initially been charged with simple domestic violence and numerous traffic violations. Among traffic violations are failure to stop, driving with a suspended license and two charges of disobedience of a traffic signal.
Madison Police Captain Kevin Newman said that additional charges of kidnapping and unauthorized taking/possession of a motor vehicle are pending. Green is currently being housed at the Madison County Detention Center.
Newman said that on February 11, at approximately 6:53 p.m., officers of MPD responded to the parking lot of the Lowes Store on Grandview Boulevard in Madison for a report of a domestic disturbance in progress.
As officers arrived on the scene, they learned that a male and female subject had exited a vehicle in the parking lot and were arguing. During the argument, the male subject, who would later be identified as Green, allegedly struck the female several times.
Green then entered the vehicle, which belonged to the female, and fled the scene with the female subject’s one-year-old child in the backseat. As he exited the parking lot in the vehicle and proceeded to the intersection of Grandview Boulevard and Highway 463, he disregarded the traffic light and entered the intersection colliding with another vehicle. At this time officers were arriving at the crash location where they took the male subject into custody and administered aid to the child and others involved in the crash.
The child was transported to Batson Children’s Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
There were no other injuries as a result of the crash. The female victim was treated for minor injuries received during the incident as well.
