CAMDEN — A Preble County man is facing domestic violence charges, after Camden officers arrested him following events which occurred at his mother’s residence in the village.

Keith Taylor was charged with domestic violence, criminal damaging, carrying a concealed weapon and criminal trespass, according to Camden Police Chief Matt Spurlock.

Camden officers responded to the 600 block of McGuire Drive on call regarding a dispute on Wednesday, July 26.

According to Spurlokc, Taylor was at his mother’s residence watching television “and the remote control stopped working.”

Spurlock reported Taylor “began to go irate according to his mother and he went into her hallway and punched a hole in the wall causing damage to property.”

Taylor then turned his attention to his mother, and approached her aggressively, according to Spurlock, who said Taylor’s mother called the police.

Upon the Camden officers’ arrival, Taylor’s mother advised them she was unsure of her son’s intentions, but she was in fear for her own safety due to his behavior and aggression over the remote control.

Taylor’s mother advised that she attempted to calm him down and he would not reason, Spurlock said.

Taylor was placed under arrest and when he was searched he possessed a large “hunting” knife, according to reports. Taylor had also been previously trespassed from the property at his mothers request, according to Spurlock.

Taylor remained housed at the Preble County Jail at press time.
