Hopkinsville Police arrested a heavily armed man last night who allegedly made threats to kill a local woman and officers.
The investigation began early in the afternoon when police took a harassing communications report regarding things allegedly said by 44-year old Monte Neely of Hopkinsville.
Neely allegedly continued making threats via text message to Shaye Maddox of Hopkinsville, reportedly saying he would kill her and police officers. Officers believed Neely to be at 217 Village Green Drive and found his vehicle there shortly after 10pm.
They called him on the phone, though he reportedly hung up on officers. Shortly after the call, police say Neely came out of his residence and attempted to get in his car. Officers took him into custody and the report says they found a tactical shotgun on his back, a 357 magnum pistol in a bag he was carrying and four knives.
Police say the shotgun was loaded with eight rounds and the pistol was loaded with six hollow point rounds and a speed loader. He was also allegedly in possession of several boxes of more ammunition for the guns.
Also found on his person was a piece of paper with the victim’s address on it. Neely was charged with stalking, using restricted ammunition and retaliating against a participant in a legal process and was lodged in the Christian County Jail.
