Man arrested for burglary, violation of restraining order

A Hopkinsville man was arrested Sunday night for burglary and for violating a restraining order.

Officers arrived at an address in the 900 block of West Seventh Street about 8:40 p.m. and found 38-year old William Hess of Hopkinsville standing in the front yard. He reportedly admitted to violating an emergency protective order and the female victim told Hopkinsville police that Hess had entered her home and grabbed her.

An arrest citation says Hess told officers he was not going to follow the EPO and was arrested on charges of violating the order and second-degree burglary.
