LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is accused of assaulting his grandmother and a police officer after an argument about a cell phone.

According to a police report, Kurtis L. Hendricks, 27, became angry because he didn't have his cell phone and argued about it with his grandmother. The woman told police Hendricks picked her up, slammed her on the floor and began yelling at and spitting on her. The victim then locked herself inside her bedroom and called 911. She said Hendricks tried to kick in the door.

The incident happened around 6:35 p.m. Thursday at a home on Terry Road.

The arrest report states that after police took Hendricks to jail, he told officers he would like to catch them alone, beat them and "eat them alive." As he was being put into a holding cell, police said he head-butted another officer, hitting him in the nose.

The suspect's grandmother complained of pain where she said Hendricks threw her on the ground.

Hendricks is charged with 3rd degree assault on a police officer, 4th degree assault, and terroristic threatening.
