MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – A man faces felony charges after investigators say he assaulted a pregnant woman.

Just after three o'clock Wednesday morning, Baxter County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a home on County Road 11 near Mountain Home. 

When they arrived, the victim told them 22-year-old Charles Andrew Meeks had knocked her against the wall and made threats against her.   The victim is 36 weeks pregnant.

Deputies learned that Meeks had likely returned to his residence in Marion County.  Deputies there went to his home and took Meeks into custody.  They took Meeks to the county line and turned him over to Baxter County deputies who took him to the detention center.

Meeks is charged with 3rd Degree Domestic Battery, which is a Class D Felony, and 2nd Degree Criminal Mischief, a Class A Misdemeanor.  Preliminary bond was set at $15,000.  Meeks is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court on June 23.
