LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville teen is accused of assaulting an LMPD officer after committing a burglary. 

When responding to a break-in at a home near Jeffersontown High School early Saturday morning, police say they found 19-year-old Owen Rumpel inside. Officers say Rumpel was hostile toward them, but agreed to come out.

Once outside, he allegedly became aggressive and punched an officer. After a brief struggle, police were able to handcuff Rumpel.

Rumpel is charged with burglary, assault, and resisting arrest. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf Monday morning.
