A Leitchfield man has been arrested and charged with kidnapping, assault in the 4th degree (domestic violence with a minor injury), and terroristic threatening in the 3rd degree, according to a press release from the Leitchfield Police Department.
26-year-old Jeremy Trent Geary was charged and arrested as a result of a domestic violence incident that occurred at a residence on Elmwood Drive in Leitchfield on Sunday, March 3, according to Detective Kevin Smith.
