Georgetown officer arrested

By Daniel Karell


A Georgetown police officer and his stepson were both arrested on Labor Day after an altercation in their backyard

Georgetown Patrolman Kendal Kumpf and Trenton M. Carrington, 18, were both arrested by Brown County Sheriff’s Office deputies on Sept. 7 and placed in the Brown County Adult Detention Center on one charge of domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor, according to documents in the Brown County Municipal Court.

Both Carrington and Kumpf posted $5,000 bond on Sept. 8 and were released from the county jail. The pair have been ordered to have no contact with one another.

Georgetown Police Chief Robert Freeland sent out a press release on Sept. 8, stating that Kumpf had been placed on paid administrative leave and the Georgetown Police Department is cooperating with the Brown County Prosecutor’s Office, who is handling the matter. Freeland declined further comment on the incident.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in the municipal court, Kumpf and Carrington were involved in a physical dispute on their back deck that allegedly stemmed from Kumpf’s disapproval in Carrington’s behavior.

After Carrington allegedly said that he didn’t want to speak with Kumpf when Carrington returned from a weekend at his biological father’s house, Kumpf allegedly pushed Carrington. Kumpf then allegedly grabbed Carrington by the neck and threw him off the deck. Carrington then allegedly punched Kumpf, before Kumpf left to go inside. There were visible marks of the injuries suffered on Carrington’s neck and left knee.

In an interview later with a BCSO deputy, according to the affidavit, Kumpf admitted to getting in an altercation with his stepson and closing Carrington’s airway, causing Carrington to “sleep for a couple seconds.”

Kumpf has been a member of the Georgetown Police Department since 2008, and is one of only seven full-time officers. He has worked in the past with the Mt. Orab Police Department and the Brown County Sheriff’s Office.
