An Elizabethtown man was arrested Tues­day on a pair of warrants stemming from two reported December incidents.

Michael Isaac, 24, is charged with stealing a rented vehicle Dec. 19 from Swope Mitsubishi and crashing a Mitsubishi Outlander on Robin­brooke Boulevard in Elizabethtown before abandoning it, according to an arrest warrant. Isaac reportedly was told “multiple times,” the warrant said, that he couldn’t use the vehicle.

While the person who rented the vehicle slept, Isaac took the keys to the Outlander, the warrant claims.

Isaac also was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge related to a Dec. 21 incident when he punched a man in the face several times, causing the man’s nose to bleed and causing swelling around the man’s eyes and on his face.

Isaac, who is being held in lieu of $25,500 in cash bonds in the Hardin County Detention Center, is scheduled to appear Jan. 31 in Hardin District Court.

He is charged with theft by unlawful taking of an automobile, more than $10,000 and less than $1 million, a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted, and fourth-degree assault, minor injury, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison, if convicted.
