    The jail would not accept a message for Hightower. The complaint says he admitted calling the woman and threatening that she’d get her “head blown off,” but that he only meant to scare her.

    Hightower was arrested Tuesday. During the arrest, Officer Jesse Zilge sprayed Hightower with a chemical and kicked him. The arrest was videoed by a citizen and posted on YouTube.

    The department has launched an internal investigation and Zilge has been placed on leave.
