Felon accused of battering his wife
A Midtown man who served 24 years in prison for killing his brother is wanted on a warrant for several felonies, including confinement, battery and pointing a loaded firearm.
Charles R. Kindred, 61, allegedly choked his wife and threatened to kill her during an argument at their home in April.
In June, the victim told Detective Cpl. Shauna Poirier-Peter that Kindred came home and they argued, then he began threatening her, the probable cause affidavit states.
The fight turned physical and Kindred pinned her on the couch and placed his knee on her collar bone, causing injuries.
He then pointed a gun at her and cocked it.
Kindred’s wife obtained a protective order to keep him away from her in May, court records show.
Boy, 13, crashes while driving
A 13-year-old boy who took his mother’s car because he was bored was arrested Monday afternoon at the scene where he crashed into a garage after knocking down mailboxes in Miller, police said.
The teen was arrested when Cpl. Charles Turner discovered the crash about 4 p.m. in the 500 block of North Vandenberg Street, police spokeswoman Cpl. Gabrielle King said.
After he was taken into custody, the teen was released to his parents, King said.
Sgt. Mark White in the juvenile division will follow-up on the case and charges are expected to be filed.
Police have not determined the amount of damage caused by the teen’s crash, King said.
