42-year-old Michael Thompson was jailed on April 16th for allegedly pushing his girlfriend, Bridgette Luckie, to the ground and kicking her in the stomach. Police responded to 2nd Avenue, where Luckie’s friend told them that she and her boyfriend, Michael Thompson, had been arguing and he was saying inappropriate things to Luckie and her friends. Luckie told police that her boyfriend said he was going to kill her child and was being aggressive with her friends, so she slapped him in the face, and he pushed her to the ground and kicked her. Luckie’s friend said she saw her slap Michael and then saw him push her to the ground, but she didn’t see him kick her. An employee from a nearby store told police they saw Luckie get pushed and kicked while she was on the ground. Police determined the physical reaction by Thompson was not equal to the slap made by Luckie, and both were taken to jail.
