When officers arrived they found 21-year-old Nathan Kimbrel outside of the home in a vehicle.

“Upon talking to the adult female and an 11-year-old child, officers learned that an argument between the suspect (Kimbrel) and adult female turned physical when the suspect kicked the victim on her leg causing her to fall and hit her head,” said Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults. “The female said the suspect (Kimbrel) then grabbed her hands and hit himself on the face before she could get away from him.”

At some point during the fight, officials say that Kimbrel entered the bedroom of the 11-year-old male and exposed himself.

Kimbrel was arrested on charges of battery against a family member, and public indecency and transported to the Lawrence County Jail.
