03/10/14 On Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at approximately 9:45 p.m. a female subject came to the Bourbon Police Department asking to speak with an officer about a domestic dispute that had occurred earlier that same night at her residence.
Since the incident had occurred in the county, officers from the Marshall County Police Department were dispatched to the Bourbon Police Department. Officer Travis O’Neal arrived and spoke to the female and learned that a male subject who she identified as 53 year old Chris A. Lemler had entered her residence on Cedar Road earlier that night around 9:30 p.m. and pointed a handgun at her and her boyfriend and threatened to kill them both.
The female said that after her boyfriend fled the residence Chris Lemler left her home and followed him. She then went to the Bourbon Police Department to speak with officers.
After obtaining an address for Chris Lemler officers from the County Police Department and Bourbon Police were able to locate Mr. Lemler at his residence on Apple Road and take him into custody without incident. He was transported to the Marshall County Jail where he was lodged for Intimidation with a deadly weapon, pointing a firearm, and criminal mischief.
He was cited into Marshall County Superior Court No. 1 with bond fixed at $20,000.00
