Woman arrested after alleged armed domestic disturbance


A reported domestic disturbance Friday night at a house on the west side of Pine Bluff resulted in the arrest of a woman who allegedly chased a family member with a knife.

Nicole Black-Gold, 31, allegedly was involved in an altercation with a female family member and the two were pushing each other, Deputy Prosecutor Karres Manning said during a court hearing Monday for Black-Gold.

Detective Chris Wieland said in a probable cause affidavit that a 16-year-old male family member tried to help the woman when she fell, and Black-Gold allegedly chased him with a knife until someone stepped in and took the knife.

The incident was reported at 9:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of West 35th Avenue.

Manning said Black-Gold had no prior felony convictions or pending charges, but had been charged with several misdemeanors in the past.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $5,000 bond for Black-Gold after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with aggravated assault on a family or household member.

She was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
