A Gallatin man was arrested Sunday after allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend and an acquaintance on Jones Street.
Gallatin Police officer Michael Tinker was dispatched to the 100 block of Jones Street on that date on a burglary call, according to an affidavit filed in Sumner County General Sessions Court.
“Upon arrival, I made contact with the complainant and resident of that address...and her friend,” Tinker wrote in the affidavit.
“Both stated (the victim's) ex-boyfriend, Lorando Burrow, had come to the residence beating on the door demanding to be let in,” the affidavit reads. “(She) stated Burrow kicked the door in knocking her to the ground and entered her residence.”The other man reportedly told Officer Tinker that Burrow was yelling threats to the woman before the door was kicked in, and Burrow then attempted to assault the woman, according to the affidavit.
When the man attempted to step in between the two to break up the confrontation, Burrow “then produced a black pocket knife and threatened them,” according to the affidavit.
Tinker wrote in the affidavit that while he was on the scene, “Burrow called the victim...and threatened her over the phone.”
“Burrow came back to the scene with a different account of the incident,” Tinker wrote in the affidavit. “Burrow stated he was at the residence to get his things but did not kick the door in. Officers located a black pocket knife in the passenger seat of the vehicle Burrow came back to the scene in.”
Burrow, 34, of Union Park Drive, was held in the Sumner County Jail on $20,000 bond after being charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, and public intoxication.
He was scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on Jan. 16, 2013.
