SCOTLAND — A Scotland man was arrested on Dec. 19 for allegedly throwing a 9-year-old girl across a room.

On that date, according to court documents, law enforcement went to the Scotland School to talk to a 13-year-old boy about an alleged assault the previous day. The boy reportedly said 36-year-old Kellen Scribner picked up the girl by the throat and "threw her across the room like a rag doll" at a local residence.

A search warrant was executed on a Second Street house, where Scribner was arrested for the assault. A search of the home allegedly uncovered a small amount of marijuana in a dresser, and a urine sample taken at the Bon Homme County Jail allegedly tested positive for marijuana.

Scribner reportedly said the boy's story was not completely accurate and that "his hand had slipped and he ended up grabbing (the girl) by the throat and throwing her across the room," according to an affidavit filed Dec. 20.

Scribner is charged with aggravated assault, a Class 3 felony, and possession of two ounces or less of marijuana and ingestion of marijuana, both of which are Class 1 felonies. He was released on an $11,000 bond on Dec. 20.
