On 7/21/2016, Hot Springs Police Corporal Roberson was dispatched to the 800 Block of Gaines Avenue in reference to a disturbance.
Cpl. Roberson arrived and made contact with a female subject who stated that she and her boyfriend identified as Deshawn Halterman, 20, of Hot Springs, were outside on the front porch of her home when Mr. Halterman became upset because the victim advised him that she no longer wanted to date him. She further stated that Mr. Halterman became upset and demanded to see her cellphone.
When she refused to allow him to use her phone, Mr. Halterman allegedly attempted to enter her home but she blocked his entry. Mr. Halterman allegedly pushed her out of the way and entered the living room area of the home. At that point in time, she began to yell for her father and mother who were both inside of the home.
Cpl. Roberson collected a statement from the father of the female subject, who stated that he had heard his daughter yelling and exited out of the bedroom and entered the living room area, where he saw an unknown black male arguing with his daughter. The father stated that neither himself nor his wife has ever seen Mr. Halterman before and he had no idea that Mr. Halterman had been dating his daughter. The father stated that he told Mr. Halterman ” I don’t know who you are, but you need to get out of my house”. Mr. Halterman allegedly refused to leave and the father attempted to push him out of the house.
At that point, Mr. Halterman allegedly picked up a glass vase and hit the female’s father on the left side of his head with the vase, which caused his head to begin to bleed. Allegedly, Mr. Halterman then picked up a wooden stick and hit the father on the left side of his chest. At that time, the father punched Mr. Halterman in the left side of his face, causing an injury that required stitches. After being hit by the father, Mr. Halterman exited out the front door of the house and allegedly picked up a metal object that was laying in the front yard of the residence and then threw it through the back glass of the father’s Ford Explorer that was parked in the driveway.
The father refused medical treatment.
Mr. Halterman was placed under arrest and transported to the Garland County Detention Center.
He is charged with Aggravated Residential Burglary, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree, and Battery 3rd Degree.
His bond is set at $7,500.00.
