Man breaks leg during break-in, calls 911


LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Police in Louisville, Ky., say a man called 911 after falling from a ladder and breaking his leg in the middle of a home break-in.

The Courier-Journal reported Monday that, according to an arrest warrant, emergency workers found 34-year-old Kenneth Dewhawn Splunge inside a house.

Louisville police in the warrant say Splunge last week 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 a hospital. He was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary at the hospital two days later.

He was being held in jail a $2,500 cash bond. Jail records did not list an attorney.
