GLASGOW — Glasgow Police Department Lt. Col. David Graves entered a plea of not guilty Wednesday in Barren District Court on a charge of assault, fourth degree (domestic violence), minor injury.

Graves was arrested and charged just after midnight Feb. 19 by Kentucky State Police Sgt. Jermaine Savage, according to a KSP citation in Graves’ court records. He is accused of kicking the person lodging the complaint “in the buttocks with his foot, causing [her] to hit her head on the corner of a couch, leaving redness and swelling to her forehead,” according to the citation.

The charge is a misdemeanor.

Graves was released later in the morning of Feb. 19 from the Barren County Detention Center on a $500 surety bond; he was placed on paid administrative leave by the GPD later the same day.

The person accusing Graves of the crime obtained an emergency protective order on March 7; he was placed on unpaid leave right after that, said B. Alan Simpson, who is co-counsel on the case with Ronald Hampton.
