Overland Park City Councilman Charged With Domestic Battery

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged an Overland Park city councilman with one count of domestic battery.  Court documents show Scott Hamblin was arrested after police were called to his home Tuesday night for a report of a disturbance. A police incident report says Hamblin was accused of physical contact with a person “in a rude, insulting or angry manner” and police indicated they believed Hamblin was drunk at the time. Police reported damage to drywall in the home. No injuries were reported. Hamblin has pleaded not guilty to the charge. He did not immediately return a message left Thursday by The Associated Press seeking comment.
