Officers were called back at 9 p.m. after Saadiq was reportedly kicking the door so hard it knocked pictures off the walls. As he continued to kick, the door opened more and more.

When officers reached the scene, Saadiq ran from Imperial Point but was caught behind his residence on Garnett Drive. Officers said Saadiq continued to resist, and was confrontational and abusive to officers.

Saadiq was arrested for second-degree criminal trespass, second-degree fleeing or evading police, attempted second-degree burglary and disorderly conduct. He was lodged in the Jessamine County Detention Center.
