JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested a man on various charges after his wife claimed he injected her with drugs while she slept.

Officer Brian Arnold responded to a domestic disturbance call around 2 p.m. Sunday in the 400-block of Marshall.

According to his initial incident report, the 32-year-old victim said she was asleep in the bedroom when she woke to find 34-year-old Christopher Adam Dougan injecting something into her arm.

When asked if she had used any meth lately, the victim reportedly told Arnold she tried it once “many years ago but had not used it since.”

Arnold noted a “large bump on her left arm with a small red mark that appeared to be from a needle.”

An ambulance then took the victim to a local hospital for treatment.

As Arnold spoke with the victim, Officer Joseph Branstetter spoke with the suspect, who was “sweating and speaking erratically.”

According to his report, Dougan denied injecting his wife with an unknown substance. He stated she was not feeling good and been sleeping in the back bedroom.

When Dougan led Branstetter to the room, the officer found a clear cellophane baggie containing a white crystallized substance on the floor of the hallway.

Dougan reportedly denied the drugs were his.

Branstetter arrested Dougan. While searching him, the officer reported finding five Xanax pills in Dougan’s pocket.

He then took Dougan to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was booked for on the following charges:

  • Domestic battering-second degree
  • Introducing a controlled substance into another’s body
  • Possession of meth or cocaine less than 2 ounces
  • Possession of a Schedule IV or V controlled substance less than 28 grams
  • Parole violator

Dougan was left at the CCDC on a parole hold to await a probable cause hearing.
