BEEBE, AR (KAIT) -

A man faces aggravated assault and domestic battery charges after he reportedly fired off a weapon inside a home, Beebe police said Wednesday. 

John William Cates of Beebe was arrested Tuesday after police went to a home on West Oklahoma Street due to a domestic disturbance, according to Misty Goss with Beebe police. 

Cates and the victim were in a physical struggle when police arrived, and officers found out that Cates had fired a weapon inside the residence during the argument, police said. 

The victim, whose name was not released, was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital and was released, police said.
