An argument over car keys reportedly turned physical Tuesday night and left an Elizabethtown man facing multiple felony charges.

Travis England, 31, is charged with second-degree assault, a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted, and first-degree wanton endangerment, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.

According to an arrest citation, England attempted to take a woman’s car keys and she refused to give the keys to him. England is alleged to have thrown her against a wall and to the ground, causing bruising and swelling to her face.

He then reportedly threw loose makeup items and a makeup bag at her and pointed a gun at the woman and threatened to kill her, according to the arrest report. He allegedly chambered a bullet and pointed the gun at her again “to show her he was serious,” according to the citation.

The woman also was struck in the back of the head with the gun, knocking her to her knees and causing her head to bleed, the report said.

England, who is being held in lieu of a $5,000 cash bond in the Hardin County De­ten­tion Center, also is charged with first offense, first-degree possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine; fourth-degree assault, minor injury; possession of drug paraphernalia, gun enhancement and possession of marijuana, gun enhancement.

He is scheduled to appear Nov. 25 in Hardin District Court.
