Denton police responded to a domestic disturbance and arrested a 28-year-old man on an outstanding warrant Friday morning in the 1700 block of Village East Drive, according to a police report.

The man initially called police to tell them his girlfriend had kicked him out and refused to let him back inside the apartment. The 20-year-old woman allegedly woke him up Friday morning and kicked him out because he didn’t have a job, put his things outside and didn’t let him back inside.

While police talked to each of them, they explained the man couldn’t be kicked out if he is proven to be a resident, Denton police spokeswoman Khristen Jones said.

The report shows police ran the couple’s names through their system and found out the man had an outstanding warrant for assault in Denton County. He was arrested on that warrant.
