JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A former public defender in Sharp County faces more legal troubles in Craighead County.
Jonesboro police were called to a home in the 4000 block of Lochmoor Circle around 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23. in reference to a domestic disturbance, according to the incident report.
The report said Calvin Harrell was verbally abusing a person inside the home and “acting irate.”
Harrell faces charges of third-degree assault on a family or household member and contempt of court.
Harrell recently had his law license suspended on May 11 by the Arkansas Supreme Court after he was arrested following a domestic disturbance in Cherokee Village in April.
