COTTER, AR (KAIT) – The Baxter County Sheriff's Office and Cotter Police say a man has been arrested after they received a phone call about a man threatening his wife with a shot gun.

According to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery, Christopher Dean Wake, 22, of Cotter was arrested after officers found a Mossberg 20 gauge pump shotgun in the yard in the same area where Wake was seen threatening his wife; the shotgun had three shells in it, with one in the chamber.

Wake was taken into custody without incident.

His wife, who is pregnant, sustained injuries but did not seek medical attention.

Wake is charged with 3rd degree domestic battery with enhancement due to victim being pregnant, and assault on a family member.

Wake's bond was set at $25,000 pending his appearance in Baxter county Circuit Court on Nov. 10 and 9 a.m. He is currently held at the Baxter County Detention Center.

Police did find paperwork at the scene showing a Missouri conviction in May 2011 for battery involving Wake's ex-girlfriend.
