A domestic violence call early Sunday in Princeton led to an arrest for assault and drug possession as well as a second arrest for drug possession.
According to a news release from the Princeton Police Department, officers responded just before 1 a.m. Sunday to a domestic abuse complaint on Citizens Court. After speaking with the victim and a witness, police determined the suspect, John M. Oliver, 25, of Hopkinsville, had left the scene.
Oliver could not immediately be found, but was located around 11:45 p.m. when he returned to the Citizens Court residence, where he was arrested on two Christian County bench warrants for contempt of court. He was also charged with fourth-degree domestic violence assault, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine, first offense), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (heroin, first offense) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Early on Monday, around 3:30 a.m., Princeton Police were contacted by Michael B. Hinman, 26, of Princeton, who told officers that the meth located during the Oliver arrest belonged to him. Hinman was taken into custody and charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth, first offense.)
