POLICE: Louisville man arrested at his home for interfering with official homicide investigation
Police say the man was outside the Cecil Avenue home and was told several times that he would not be allowed to enter his home because of the investigation.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a man at his home after authorities say he interfered with a homicide investigation.
Reginald Garrison, 52, was arrested on Monday morning at his home in the 1000 block of Cecil Avenue, near Greenwood Avenue, in the Chickasaw neighborhood.
According to an arrest report, homicide officials were conducting an investigation at Garrison's home.
Police say Garrison's home was not the actual scene of a homicide that happened Sunday night on Cecil Avenue, and he is not a suspect in that case.
Authorities say Garrison was outside the home, and was told several times that he would not be allowed to enter his home because of the investigation. Police had a search warrant at the time.
Officials say Garrison "was told at least four times he would be advised when it was appropriate to go back inside."
According to police, Garrison went back into the home and locked all the doors. When officers knocked, Garrison allegedly refused to answer the door and yelled profanities.
Once officers were able to access the home, police say Garrison altered the scene and refused to follow officers' orders.
Garrison is charged with tampering with physical evidence, criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental operations.
He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections.
