During the investigation it was determined that Jack Anderson allegedly strangled, battered and threatened his live-in girlfriend during the early morning hours on New Year’s Day. Mt. Vernon Police arrived at the residence, but Anderson had already left.
His girlfriend did not require medical attention. After Anderson’s girlfriend left the residence to stay with family, he allegedly returned to the home they shared and started a fire inside the home causing extension damage.
The early morning fire was eventually extinguished by Mt. Vernon Fire Department.
Anderson was arrested by Mt. Vernon Police for Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon, Strangulation and Domestic Battery. He is still incarcerated in the Posey County Jail and currently being held on a $200,000 cash bond.
