A first-year Kansas lawmaker who has already faced multiple accusations of misconduct was arrested on a charge of domestic violence over the weekend.
On Saturday Rep. Aaron Coleman was taken into custody by Overland Park police at 8:15 p.m on a domestic battery charge.
While the unmarried Coleman’s domestic situation is unknown, the 21-year-old Democratic legislator has been accused several times of misconduct, including by a former girlfriend who said he slapped and choked her.

Earlier in October, Coleman was banned from the state’s Department of Labor offices after it was reported he berated a security officer while trying to improperly access the department’s main office.
Coleman has previously been under a temporary order not to communicate with the former campaign manager of a political opponent, who had said Coleman sent her harassing messages, came to her home twice and tried to get her evicted.
Coleman has previously tweeted that Gov. Laura Kelly would face an “extremely bloody” Democratic primary.
“People will realize one day when I call a hit out on you it’s real,” he added in his tweet about Gov. Laura Kelly.
