Police arrest man after alleged confinement, battery

Police arrested a 26-year-old man after an argument with his ex-girlfriend turned violent Sunday afternoon, BPD Sgt. Joe Crider said.

George Langley was arrested and preliminarily charged with confinement with a weapon, domestic violence in the presence of a minor, interference with the reporting of a crime and criminal mischief.

The woman reported the argument was caused by an inadvertent text message sent to Langley, the father of her children, which sparked a larger argument about money issues.

When the woman tried to leave in her vehicle, Langley reportedly pulled on her body, clothes and hair through an open window. He also tried to grab her keys, but she was able to start the car and drive away.

Langley then started his vehicle and caught up with the woman, parking his car in a way that prevented hers from leaving. He then removed a small pocket knife and slashed her front tires.

BPD officers located Langley, who denied any physical involvement during the argument but admitted to puncturing the woman’s tires and tossing the knife from his vehicle onto State Road 37.
