A reported domestic disturbance Wednesday resulted in the arrest of two people who were allegedly arguing with each other when police arrived.
Bobby Anderson, 26, and Kima Jamerson, 30, were taken into custody after police were sent to 3115 Old Warren Road, Deputy Prosecutor Bryan Achorn said in a court hearing Thursday.
Detective Michael Roberts reported that Anderson had visible injuries to his face and neck and Jamerson had a busted lip. Both were charged with third-degree domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
A records check, however, indicated that Anderson had been convicted of two previous counts of misdemeanor domestic battery last year, while Jamerson had also been convicted of misdemeanor domestic battery last year.
As a result of those prior convictions, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled prosecutors had probable cause to charge Anderson and Jamerson with second offense third-degree domestic battery, a felony.
Kearney set a $15,000 bond for Anderson and Jamerson, and told each of them to have no contact with the other until the case is settled.
Jamerson said she would hire her own attorney. The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Anderson.
