31-year-old Christian Martin was jailed on Friday night after breaking his sobriety and threatening his girlfriend during an alcohol-induced argument. Allison Truman is Martin’s girlfriend, and they live together on Jackson Downs Blvd. Allison told police that Christian had been sober for two months due to issues that occurred when alcohol was involved. Allison and Martin got into an argument about his relapse, and she locked herself in her bedroom to avoid any conflict while he was drunk. Martin started kicking the door, and Allison told him to stop several times, but he kicked the door off the hinges. Allison was scared that Martin would seriously hurt her.
Martin then threatened her by saying, “I could fold you if I wanted to” and “I could snap your neck, but you’re not worth going to jail for” When officers spoke to Martin, he was slurring his speech and unsteady on his feet. He told police he kicked the door down because “he felt like it” and he “just wanted to talk to her” The damage to the home matched the details of the incident. When Martin was taken into custody, police found brass knuckles in his pockets.

With the assistance of AirOne, all three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody after short foot pursuits. A P80 ‘ghost gun’ with an automatic switch was found within reach of Howard at the time of his arrest… more details inside
