Homeless Man Arrested After Fight Over A Kitten

Jasper (NNDC) – Jasper police say a homeless man was arrested late Saturday night after he got into a fight with another man over a kitten.

Arrested was 35-year old Jason Basham.  Jasper police say when they arrived at a mobile home in the 3800 block of North Portersville Road, they learned that Basham got into both a verbal and then a physical confrontation with the second man.   JPD says the altercation apparently was about Basham’s kitten.   JPD says the altercation included Basham punching the second man causing a swollen eye and a bloody mouth.

Basham was taken to Memorial Hospital where he was cleared medically.  Basham’s claim of “entire body pain” was unfounded according to JPD.

Basham is charged with Battery with Bodily Injury (A misdemeanor) and Disorderly Conduct (B misdemeanor).
