According to the Madisonville Police Department report, Officer Kyle Pharris received a call from central dispatch about a disturbance at a residence on Whittington Drive.

The report said dispatch advised Pharris that the subject was fighting with other people in the house and breaking glass objects and that the subject was extremely intoxicated.
