JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A day after she told her pregnant roommate to move out, police say a Jonesboro woman attacked the mom-to-be on Mother's Day.

Sunday night, Jonesboro police arrested 28-year-old Barbara Jean Bailey on suspicion of domestic battery-third degree against a pregnant woman.

Officers arrested Bailey after they were called to her home twice Sunday night.

According to court documents, Bailey had kicked the woman, who had been her roommate, out of her apartment the previous night.

On the first service call, officers reported finding Bailey yelling at the woman. They told her to “leave the victim alone and advised her to go inside and close her door due to her being highly intoxicated.”

A short time later, officers were called back to the scene.

While the victim was outside, Bailey walked out and attacked the woman, injuring her, the affidavit said.

When officers tried to arrest Bailey, they said she refused to turn around and place her hands behind her back. They also said she “actively resisted” and was “screaming profanity and acting belligerent.”

After reviewing the documents, Craighead County District Judge David Boling found probable cause Monday to charge Bailey with domestic battery-third degree against a pregnant woman, a Class D felony. She’s also charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest, public intoxication, and disorderly conduct.

Bailey is being held in the Craighead County Detention Center on a $2,500 cash/surety bond awaiting a June 29 court date.
