A Fort Campbell man was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly attempting an armed robbery at a Country Club Lane apartment complex Sunday night.
The initial incident happened around 9:15 at 715 Country Club, when Demario Hollowell of Hopkinsville told city police he had been walking to his car when a man walked toward him with a gun and demanded money.
The would-be robber lowered his gun and walked away when another witness drove into the parking lot. The perpetrator then got in a car and drove toward Fort Campbell Boulevard.
Hopkinsville Police soon detained 20-year old Steven Jacobs, Jr. of Fort Campbell, who allegedly admitted to holding up Hollowell. Jacobs was arrested and charged with first degree attempted robbery and was lodged in the Christian County Jail on $25,000 bond.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Bowling Green blames the unwillingness of Democrats to compromise for the ongoing government shutdown.
Senator Paul says President Obama has not shown any willingness to bend on the Affordable Care Act to meet Republicans somewhere in the middle.
He says Republicans have offered multiple compromises and none were received well.
Senator Paul accuses Democrats of playing political games with the shutdown.
Meanwhile, a very early poll shows Senator Paul as the frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential Primary. Former New York Senator and First Lady Hillary Clinton is the leader on the Democrat side.
