Woman arrested on felony allegation after domestic incident


A reported domestic disturbance Friday sent one man to the hospital after he was hit with a baseball bat, and his girlfriend to jail after she admitted hitting him.

Gail Litzsey, 23, told police that her boyfriend, Charles Gipson, had tried to fight her, hitting her in the face, mouth and chest, Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable-cause affidavit that was presented in court Monday.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said that when police arrived at 1004 N. Haley St., they found Gipson unconscious with an injury to the head.

Litzsey said the two had gotten into a verbal altercation that turned physical.

Gipson also was arrested for misdemeanor third-degree domestic battery and was held on a petition that has been filed to revoke his probation.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $10,000 bond for Litzsey after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree domestic battery.

Litzsey also was ordered to have no contact with Gipson until the case is settled.

She said she would hire her own attorney.
