30-year-old woman charged with battering 79-year-old husband

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - District Court Judge Keith Blackman found probable cause Wednesday to charge a 30-year-old Jonesboro woman accused of attacking her 79-year-old husband with domestic battery.

In addition to the felony charge, Chelsea Brown is also charged with driving on a suspended license, a misdemeanor.

According to the initial police report, the couple got into an argument in the driveway of their home in the 800-block of Mays Road.

Brown's husband told police when she returned home he asked for the car keys “because she does not have a driver's license and is not supposed to be driving,” the report stated.

He said Brown became upset and began punching him in the head and back before knocking him to the ground.

According to the report, the man had scratches to his hand and wrist and was complaining of injuries to his ribs and shoulder. He was taken to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries.

When questioned by police, Brown said Lee approached her in the driveway wanting the keys. She said he hit her in the face and pushed her against the car. The officer reported he did not see any visible injuries on Brown.

She was arrested for domestic battery and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.
