CLEAR LAKE – A man awaiting trial on at least his third domestic assault charge was arrested in Clear Lake Thursday as he chased a woman who was protected by a court-ordered no-contact order.
According to Clear Lake police, they received a call Thursday at about 10:00 PM informing them that Kennth Shaun Nielsen, age 31, was arguing with his girlfriend.
When officers got close to the residence where the fracas was taking place, they saw Nielsen’s girlfriend walking down the street and Mr. Nielsen was allegedly chasing her on a bicycle. Records show that there is a no contact order in effect between the Nielsen and the woman.
“Nielsen threw down the bicycle just before officers met him. He was intoxicated and uncooperative,” a Clear Lake police officer told NIT.
When officers told Nielsen that he was under arrest, he allegedly resisted.
Once Nielsen was arrested and placed in the squad car, officers checked the serial number of the bicycle he was riding.
“It had been reported stolen in a burglary 3 days before. The bicycle is a very expensive one and it is estimated that it sustained about $500 in damages when Nielsen threw it to the ground,” the officer explained.
Nielsen was charged with a Violation of the No Contact Order, Interference with Official Acts, Public Consumption, 2nd degree Theft and Criminal Mischief and transported to jail, where he is still being held.
