Man accused of hitting woman with car during domestic dispute

A $10,000 bond was set for a man who allegedly drove a car over a woman during a domestic dispute Monday in Tucker.

Brandon Fox, 34, was arrested on allegations of second-degree domestic battery and violating a protective order, Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said at a probable cause hearing on Wednesday.

Fox allegedly argued with the woman in front of her two children, jerked her to the ground by pulling a key chain around her neck, dragged her and got into the woman’s’s car and backed it into her, Pugh said. Fox allegedly fled the scene on foot and was arrested later that day at about 3 p.m. at the original scene.

“The victim tried to leave with her two children,” Pugh said. “Mr. Fox prevented her from leaving as they had planned to have a picnic and he didn’t want her to ruin his plans.”

The woman hit her head on a concrete culvert during the incident, Pugh said. She was taken to the University of Arkansas Medical Center for treatment.

In addition to ruling that prosecutors have probable cause to charge Fox and setting the bond, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney granted a request from Pugh that Fox have no contact with the alleged victim while his criminal case is pending.
