(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus man was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly holding a knife to a victim's head during an argument with a woman.

WKKG reports that police were called to the 4600 block of Breckenridge Drive at about 12:10 a.m. Wednesday on a report that a man was kicking a door down. When officers arrived, the man had already left the area. A woman told Columbus police officers that an intoxicated man had held a 7-inch knife to her head, cutting her, says Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus police.

A police dog tracked down a suspect and police found a man running in the shadows behind a mobile home. After the suspect refused to stop, police unleashed the dog and 41-year-old James E. Bowling was caught, Harris says.

Bowling was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital to be treated for a dog bite to the leg, and then to the county jail on preliminary charges of battery, criminal confinement, intimidation with a deadly weapon, interfering with the reporting of a crime and resisting law enforcement.
