BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT)-  A Mountain Home man is arrested for the fifth time since October and faces multiple charges.

According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, Shunn Dewayne Stephens, 21, was arrested again on February 3 for violating a no contact order and other charges.  Deputies responded to a disturbance call from a woman who said Stephens was outside her residence in violation of the order.

According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, Stephens bond was set at $50,000 and he was set to appear in court Thursday Feb. 10th.
