Man allegedly throws burning clothes at wife


A reported domestic disturbance Sunday at a house on Lee Springs Road resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly threw burning clothing at his wife following an argument.

Christopher Hollis, 42, reportedly became angry when he came home and found his wife burning his clothes, Deputy Prosecutor Bryan Achorn said during a court hearing Tuesday for Hollis.

Sheriff’s Investigator Randy Jackson reported that deputies were sent to 11500 Lee Springs Road where the wife, Brandy Hollis, had burns on her face, arms and hand as a result of the incident.

Achorn said Christopher Hollis also had injuries including scratches to his back after Brandy Hollis reportedly pushed him through a glass storm door, and she was also arrested for third-degree domestic battery.

Because of the injuries to Brandy Hollis, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 cash only bond for Christopher Hollis after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with second-degree domestic battery.

Achorn said Christopher Hollis is currently on parole and had a lengthy criminal record, dating back to 1986 and included 13 prior cases with multiple offenses included in them.

In addition to setting the bond, Bridgforth ordered Christopher Hollis to have no contact with Brandy Hollis until the case is settled, and to come back to court May 15 at 9 a.m.
