OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (WIBW) - A Kansas lawmaker is facing criminal charges after his arrest over the weekend.

Rep. Aaron Coleman (D - Kansas City, KS) was arrested Saturday evening and booked into the Johnson Co. jail for misdemeanor domestic battery.

Coleman, who is 21, was set to appear before a judge on Monday.

Last month, Coleman was banned from a state agency’s offices over alleged “disruptive, intimidating and berating behavior,” eight months after receiving a written warning from a legislative committee about his conduct before taking office.

Top Kansas Democrats have refused to give Colman any committee assignments due to issues that include an anti-stalking court order filed against him after he won his seat.

Coleman represents House Dist. 37, which covers a portion of Wyandotte Co.
