PB man arrested on second offense domestic battery


After being convicted of misdemeanor domestic battery in 2010, a Pine Bluff man could face a felony charge after being arrested last week.

Bernard Morgan, 28, allegedly was involved in a disturbance with a female on Feb. 8, Detective Sgt. Charles Harrison said in a probable cause affidavit.

Police were sent to an apartment at 1020 Linden St., and when they arrived, they found the window glasses broken and a razor blade on the ground in front of the apartment, Harrison said.

Harrison reported that officers found a second razor blade on the kitchen floor.

Morgan told officers his wife had called police after an argument, and said she tried to hit him, then grabbed two razor blades off a television stand, according to Harrison.

Harrison reported that Morgan and his wife both were arrested for domestic battery because officers saw visible injuries to both.

A $10,000 bond was set for Morgan on an allegation of second offense third-degree domestic battery, and he was ordered to have no contact with his wife until the case is settled.

Morgan was told to come back to court March 26.
