Bond set in alleged assault


A $2,500 bond was set Friday for a Pine Bluff woman who allegedly ran her car into a car driven by her boyfriend after a domestic disturbance Wednesday.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Gwendolyn Johnson, 24, with aggravated assault and criminal mischief.

Deputy Prosecutor Rik Ramsey said the incident occurred at 1804 W. Circle Drive just after 2:30 p.m., when police responded to the reported disturbance.

Ramsey said Johnson and her boyfriend had “issues” and he was able to escape from the vehicle after Johnson allegedly ran into it with her vehicle. The vehicle was owned by the boyfriend’s mother.

In addition to setting the bond, Bridgforth ordered Johnson to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

Johnson said she would hire her own attorney.
