Man arrested after domestic disturbance


A man was arrested after police responded to two reports of domestic disturbances within a span of one hour Saturday morning.

Darnell Craig, 48, was taken into custody on suspicion of stalking, criminal mischief and terroristic threatening, Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said in court Monday. Craig allegedly threw bricks onto a vehicle and threatened the alleged victim, Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Mike Sweeney said at a probable cause hearing Monday.

Pine Bluff police officers pulled over Craig’s car while responding to a second report of a disturbance allegedly involving Craig at about 8:50 a.m. Saturday, Sweeney said. Pine Bluff police have responded to four or five calls of domestic disturbances allegedly involving Craig, Sweeney said. Sweeney estimated the damage to the car at about $1,000.

Sweeney said he attempted to interview Craig but was unable to because Craig was also being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence-third offense.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth ruled that prosecutors have probable cause to charge Craig, ordered him not to contact the alleged victim and set a bond of $25,000. Craig was previously arrested in 1985 for theft by receiving, a felony.
