Princeton man accused of battery on woman and her daughters

A Princeton man is accused of trying to kill his ex-girlfriend and her daughters. 22 year old Ryan Arnold was transported to St. Mary's, because police say he was severely under the influence of a drug. The incident was brought to the attention of Princeton authorities around noon Wednesday, when a woman living on Seminary Street said her ex-boyfriend was trying to kill her children. When officers arrived the woman ran out carrying her 4-year-old to safety. Police found Arnold in the bathroom, holding a 22-month old baby girl facedown in the bathtub. However there was no water in the tub. They used a stun gun twice to subdue Arnold. Officers say the toddler was examined at Gibson General Hospital for minor bruising around her neck. Police say Arnold will be charged with battery on the mother and the two children, as well as confinement, and interfering with the report of a crime.
