A Madison man has been arrested and charged with aggravated stalking, burglary, criminal trespass, terroristic threats and obstruction after he allegedly threatened a Rutledge woman and broke into a guest house on the woman’s property. Michael Glen Nix, 41, was arrested Monday, January 27 after deputies responded to a burglary-in-progress call at a Nunnally Street, Rutledge resident.
According to reports, a deputy observed Nix running towards Nunnally Street when he arrived. Nix was taken into custody and told the deputy he was in Rutledge to visit family. Reports state that the night prior to his arrest, women at the Nunnally Street residence complained that Nix had been outside their house threatening to burn the house down if they did not allow him to enter.
“I’ve got a screw driver and I’ll use it,” Nix allegedly threatened. “I’ll blow this whole place up; let me in this house or I will find a way in,” he allegedly said. Three women in the residence said they locked the doors and windows and went to bed while Nix continued to yell and pace outside the residence. In the morning, reports state, a woman observed Nix sleeping on a couch in the guest house. The woman said she yelled at Nix to leave but he refused. She then called police.
