On Jan. 2, 2014, the Van Buren County sheriff’s office received a call from Ozark Health that there was a woman in the emergency room who had sustained a gunshot wound.
The victim claimed that during an altercation at a residence off of Gentry Road, she had been shot in the arm. Her boyfriend then drove her to the hospital and left, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office and Arkansas State Police obtained a search warrant for the residence at 246 Gentry Road where the incident had allegedly occurred. Several items of evidence were seized, including suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and explosive material, the news release stated.
James L. Honeycutt, 49, of Clinton has been charged with domestic battery-first degree, possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of firearms by certain persons and possession of explosives material.
All of the charges are felonies.
Honeycutt is currently being held at the Van Buren County Detention Center with no bond. He is scheduled for plea and arraignment in Van Buren County Circuit Court on Feb. 27, 2014.
