All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Hot Springs Police Officer First Class Woodall reports that he and other officers were dispatched to Flint Street last night around 10:45PM in reference to a disturbance.
Officers arrived quickly and made contact with the victim and her daughter, Julie Carol Pierce, 51, of Flint Street in Hot Springs. Officers saw that the victim, 74, of Hot Springs, had an injury on her shin that was bleeding.
Both the victim and the suspect said that they got into a verbal argument about the suspect needing money. When the victim denied giving money to the suspect, the suspect became very irate and began breaking items in the house. In doing so, Ms. Pierce grabbed up the living room TV and threw it at the victim causing the leg injury. At that point, the victim called the police.
Ms. Pierce admitted to police that she threw the TV.
Ms. Pierce was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. She is charged with Felony Domestic Battery and was initially held without bond.
