Sex refusal due to heat leads to Warren man’s arrest

Suspect locked himself inside girlfriend’s car

WARREN — A South Feederlee Drive SE resident who police said locked himself in his girlfriend’s Kia Optima because he did not want to have sex pleaded not guilty in Warren Municipal Court to charges of domestic violence, obstruction of official business, resisting arrest and vehicle trespass.

Khrystian Collins, 24, posted a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear before Judge Terry Ivanchak on Sept. 9, court records show.

Collins was arrested after police responded to a call around 2 p.m. Thursday from the car’s owner stating Collins had locked himself in the front passenger seat of the vehicle with only the vehicle’s front window slightly opened. Outside tempertures were in the lower 90s, according to the police report.

Collins, according to the vehicle’s owner, had done the same thing a week earlier, but got out of the car when officers asked him.

When questioned by officers, Collins said he just wanted to get away from his girlfriend because the apartment they share is really hot and she just wants to have sex and he does not want to because it is hot, according to the police report.

Collins refused to get out of the car “in spite of being asked by officers several times,” according to the police report.

The vehicle’s owner agreed with the reason why Collins locked himself in the car, according to the report. She told officers he threatened to hit her if she did not get away from him after he locked himself in her car.

After again asking Collins to get out of the car, Sgt. Mark Krempasky told Collins he was under arrest. When Krempasky reached into the car, Collins closed the window on it, but he was able to unlock the door and then free his arm, the report states.

Collins continued refusing to get out of the car and used his cell phone to record what was happening, according to the police report. Officers then escorted Collins out of the car, but he resisted arrest, the report states.

Collins complained of injuries and was taken to St. Joseph Warrn Hospital, where he was examined and released to Trumbull County Jail.
