CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Craighead County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Sunday morning after they say an argument over his watching porn “escalated quickly.”

Just after 6:30 a.m. Deputy Dustin Norwood was called to a domestic disturbance at a house on Highway 18 East near Monette.

The 41-year-old victim told Norwood she and 31-year-old Jonathan R. Foutch had been arguing over his looking at pornographic videos and photos.

She said Foutch’s temper “escalated quickly” to his punching a hole in a kitchen cabinet, throwing a stool at her, and demanding she give him money, the incident report stated.

The woman, who has leg braces and uses a walker, told Norwood Foutch attempted to grab her purse, which was on the walker, and pull it away.

When he did so, she fell onto the floor, bruising her right abdomen and breast, the report stated.

After speaking with Foutch, Norwood arrested him on suspicion of third-degree domestic battery and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center to await a probable cause hearing.

Foutch is also being held on a hold for a misdemeanor warrant out of Ash Flat.
