A North Platte man has been arrested after he allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend during an argument.

According to the North Platte Police Department, a female came to the Police Department at around 8:19 a.m. on Thursday to report an assault.

The female told Officers that her ex-boyfriend and father of her child, Kalen Gordon, had assaulted her earlier in the day.

According to the victim, she was leaving her residence in the 200 block of South Maple with their child when she noticed Gordon sitting in the alley behind her residence.  A short time later, she said Gordon approached her and their child and began verbally fighting with her.

At one point, Gordon reportedly attempted to take the child and, in the process, shoved the victim into the vehicle “causing her pain.”  According to Police, Gordon put his forearm against the victim’s throat, causing her to have difficulty breathing before eventually letting her and the child go.

The victim told Officers she attempted to call Police, but Gordon took her phone and threw it into the yard.

Following an investigation, Police found probable to cause to arrest Gordon and charge him with Domestic Assault and Felony Strangulation.

According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Gordon is being held without bond on the felony charge .

          That sounds crazy. How can I slap you over Facebook. It wouldn’t be to do that either, it was a figure of speech. I just want to know what your friends and family would think about someone who supports domestic violence. Coming from a woman saying someone deserves being hit, REALLY?

    This man accused of beating up his ex girlfriend is my brother and I’m saying that he did it. This girl would never lie about something like this and I’ve already talked to her. So on behalf of the Gordon family, we do not condone his behavior or his actions and he has destroyed his realtionship with us AND his daughter. So there’s the truth.

      Hmmm that’s funny because last a knew his family never gave a rats ass about him. Now all of the sudden your in his business. She is crazy and lies out her ass. She does it for attention! Kalen is a good man and father! He would never hurt a woman! It’s sad he has no family to back him up.

      It’s amazing how you know so much about this when you live so far away. How about a little support for a family member. He is your brother, stand up for him. He is such a good father. He deserves time with his baby.

    Yea for his so called sister who clearly doesn’t know him you’ll see the truth and find out how great he is to his lil girl and how much she loves him and he wouldn’t do that to her mother and she’s terrible to him and treats him like crap and is doing this just to try and ruin him but keep running your mouth like she does and think your right cuz this man is an awesome father and a great buddy to have and you and your family are missing out and I feel sorry for you all cuz it’ll be too late and he will give up on you

    This guy loves his daughter, and would do anything for her. All the ‘victim’ does is LIE to make herself look good. She has some major problems! And doesn’t deserve to have that child! He would never hurt a woman in a million years!

    This young man has become a member of our family and is nothing like what this article makes him out to be. There is always two sides to a story and it’s amazing how only her side is being told. Kalen would never hurt a lady, and I use that tern loosely for the “victim” because she is anything but. Most baby daddy’s are usually busy walking out the door and never looking back, Kalen has always been there for his daughter. All he wants is to be in her life and the mother knows it. She knows exactly what she is doing and makes it impossible for him. I’m proud to call Kalen my friend and I pray that he gets the chance to be the wonderful father that he is. God Bless you Kalen.

    You people say he would never put his hands on a woman? Why don’t you all take a look at his criminal record from last year. There are ALWAYS going to be two sides to a story. Let’s quit being immature on here and let the court system handle this because his friends won’t mean anything when it comes time to justice.

    Sounds like typical sloppy NPPD work yet again. Its really a shame that this man was arrested based simply off of what one person, the “victim” said. I don’t know either of these two people or their daughter, however I do know that the most disturbing thing about this whole thing is that you can be arrested and held in jail without bond on hear-say. A couple weeks ago there was a Corey Williams arrested for theft because a “victim” called police and accused him of stealing her keys. He sat in jail for a week to find that the “victim” miraculously found her keys! But for 7 days he sat in jail based soley on the word of one person with no physical evidence. The “investigation” that took place was simply asking the “victim” for their side of the story. So the actual victim here was the man arrested on false charges. Not to say this man didn’t do what he is accused of, but without more than a “story” from a “victim” and a simple check of his record he should not have been thrown in jail to “await his day in trail” on something that would be, IMO, very hard to prove BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUGHT. This and MANY MANY more cases scare me (and should scare everyone) that our civil liberties and inalienable rights are in great jeopardy.

    I want to address the friends of Kalen claiming he’s a good
    person and wouldn’t be abusive. You must
    not know him very well or not for long enough yet for him to screw you
    over. Yes, he’s charming at first, but
    that is a primary characteristic of an abuser.
    Have you ever questioned why he isn’t in contact with him family? Because he’s a pathological liar and
    destructive. This certainly isn’t the
    first time the cops have been called or he’s hurt someone. His history makes for justified probable
    cause. Yes, there are always two sides
    to a story and the proceedings will unveil that, the TRUTH. There will be a line of people to testify
    against the offender.

    I am a family member of Kalen. First, I am glad that he has some friends out there that can have his back during this time. However, I have been there first hand to watch Kalen destroy his relationship with every family member that has ever tried to help him, stand up for him and have his back. You all really have never seen the side of Kalen that we have. We have seen the side you now see. He has emotionally and verbally abused his family, including his mother. He has lied, stolen from us, is a bully and is disrespectful. There is a reason why he was arrested, there is evidence that proves he snapped once again. It breaks my heart that this is happening, but he needs help. We love him and care about him, but he has turned his back on us because we try to lead him down the right path. I know this post is a way for most to air their feelings, but please keep in mind that he is troubled. Kalen needs to get help. I know he loves his daughter, but watching him argue, threaten and abuse her mother and family is not healthy for her. We are picking up the pieces not you all.

    There are two sides to every story, and only seeing the one side, and him being arrested instead of being questioned is beyond me, and in all reality unfair and unjust. Let alone the fact of who his “baby mamas’” boyfriend is, proves that the cops in this town are unfair and are going completely by hear say. Because as someone stated earlier, she is far from a lady. I’m sure they can both be great people but they obviously bring out the worst in eachother and the courts need to take things into their own hands for their daughters sake. This is sickening to see everyone fight over this. Kalen is a great man and father, but when pushed to a level of utter disrespect and unfairness, and her using his daughter as a weapon/tool to ruin his life instead of being the father he is trying to be is childish and immature. But eventually the truth will come out, Karma will have her way and there will be hopefully be a “fair fight”.. but who knows with the court system in this town, and NE being a mother lovin’ state

    I’ve known Kalen for a couple years…a friend of a friend thing. I have never seen him in a bad mood about anything but I am sure he can get angry…we all can. There are two sides to every story. None of us were there (that I know of) when the incident happened so we do not know if he did something, she is lying or there was a misunderstanding…that being said, there are SEVERAL women who use their children as tools against the baby daddies….and that sickens me. Hopefully, the truth…whichever way it went, will come out.
