Bond set in alleged assault


A $10,000 bond was set Monday for a Pine Bluff woman who allegedly threatened another woman with a gun and fired a shot that struck a door frame.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Amanda Thacker, 33, with aggravated assault and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said Thacker was arrested after police were sent to 4702 S. Main St., at 4:40 a.m. Sunday in response to a reported armed disturbance.

Detective Roger Gray of the Pine Bluff Police Department said in a probable cause affidavit that the alleged victim told police she had exited her vehicle when she heard Thacker yell at her, then brandish a gun and fire a shot before hitting the alleged victim with the gun.

Pugh said police found a “pink and chrome” .25-caliber handgun, one live round on the hood of the vehicle, and a second live round on the ground.

According to the affidavit, two witnesses who were with the alleged victim said the incident between the two women resulted from an earlier altercation at PJ’s Nightclub.

In addition to setting the bond,Bridgforth ordered Thacker to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

Thacker said she would hire her own attorney.
