NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 50-year-old man for aggravated assault on Monday after he allegedly grabbed his common-law wife by the neck, dragged her through the house by her hair, and pointed a loaded .357-caliber Magnum revolver at her Sunday night.
Charles Ray Honea, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. No bail amount has been set yet.
According to the arrest affidavit, a NCSO deputy went out to the sheriff's office lobby on Monday to talk to a woman who said that she and Honea had been common-law married for two-and-a-half years. The deputy noticed bruises on the woman's left arm, right knee, back, and neck.
The woman told the deputy that she and Honea got into an argument at their residence in the 500 block of County Road 532. During the argument, Honea grabbed the woman by the neck, according to the affidavit. He allegedly dragged the woman through the house by her hair.
Then Honea went and got a loaded .357-caliber Magnum revolver from their bedroom and pointed it at the woman before he told her to get out of the house, according to the affidavit.
