People get into many unfortunate situations in life, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Sometimes those emotions and feelings can lead to heated exchanges or confrontations. However, just because someone fights with an ex-partner, that does not mean he or she is guilty of criminal activity, even if one party makes those kinds of accusations.
A Bloomington man was recently arrested after authorities say he was involved in a disturbance at a local apartment building. The 20-year-old man was reportedly arrested on his birthday after investigators say he went to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and forced open the door in order to retrieve some of his belongings. Authorities say he also became physical with the woman, pushing her, after he opened the door.
According to court documents, the man was facing several preliminary charges, including burglary, battery, and intimidation, criminal recklessness and interfering with the reporting of a crime. However, the man’s ex-girlfriend was not hurt in the incident. Meanwhile, authorities say that they also charged the man with several other crimes related to a separate incident that allegedly took place a few weeks earlier. In that case, investigators allege that the man threatened to kill another ex-girlfriend when he went to get his property from her home. Authorities say the man showed the woman a gun, but he never pointed it at her.
In both of these instances, the evidence against this man might look damaging, but often in these kinds of cases when relationships go bad, things are not always as they appear. Even though the women in these situations have made similar claims against the man, it’s also entirely possible that their stories are much different from what really happened. That’s why it’s important for anyone in this kind of circumstance to seek the help of an attorney as soon as possible.
