Bond set in alleged domestic incident


A $10,000 cash-only bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly beat and kicked a pregnant woman.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Lamorris Lampkin, 27, with second-degree domestic battery and second-degree battery on a law enforcement officer.

According to a probable cause affidavit from police Detective Roger Gray, police were sent at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday to the Convention Center Plaza Hotel in response to a reported disturbance.

The alleged victim said Lampkin hit her in the face, resulting in a busted lip, bruising and swelling to the face and lips. She also said Lampkin kicked her in the back when she fell off the bed. She said she was six weeks pregnant.

Gray said in the affidavit that Lampkin was combative with police officers, head-butting one of them after being handcuffed and kicking one officer twice before a Taser stun gun was used on him and he was subdued.

Lampkin was allegedly too intoxicated to be interviewed, according to the affidavit.

According to records at the prosecutor’s office, Lampkin is listed as an “habitual offender” and is on parole. He had prior convictions dating back to 2005 for burglary, theft of property, breaking or entering and second-degree battery. He is also listed as an absconder by the parole board.

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

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Lampkin.
