Disturbance at Tucker results in arrest


A reported domestic disturbance Saturday night at Tucker resulted in the arrest of a woman who allegedly cut her husband on the hand during an argument.

Barbara Wright-Langhammer, 50, was allegedly arguing with her husband, Ronald Langhammer, who is in the process of divorcing her, State Police Special Agent Scott Rosegrant reported in a probable cause affidavit.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said the incident was reported at 2003 Tucker Loop Road, and when officers arrived, they were told that a verbal altercation had become physical.

Ronald Langhammer reported that his wife came to the house at Tucker and they began arguing about his girlfriend and during the argument, she allegedly slapped him.

Rosegrant reported that Wright-Langhammer grabbed her husband by the hair, tried to rip his clothes off, then got a knife and started cutting his clothing and underwear.

Ronald Langhammer received a cut to the right palm during the altercation, Rosegrant said in his report.

Wright-Langhammer was taken to the adult detention center where a breath alcohol test was performed and she reportedly registered a .109. In Arkansas, a reading of .08 and above is considered legally intoxicated.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Wright-Langhammer after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree domestic battery.

Bridgforth also ordered Wright-Langhammer to have no contact with her husband until the case is settled and to come back to court Nov. 5.
