BREAK-IN INJURY
Police: Man calls 911 after breaking leg during break-in at Louisville home

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 3:50 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Louisville police say a suspected burglar called 911 after falling from a ladder and breaking his leg in the middle of a heist.

The Courier-Journal reported that emergency workers found 34-year-old Kenneth Dewhawn Splunge inside a house.

Police say Splunge climbed a fence and onto a roof before trying to get inside a home by kicking out a skylight. Police say Splunge dropped the ladder through the opening, but fell and broke his leg while climbing down.

Splunge was taken to University of Louisville Hospital where he was admitted for treatment. He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary at the hospital two days later.

Splunge was being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $2,500 cash bond. Jail records did not list an attorney.
