A $25,000 cash only bond was set Thursday for a Pine Bluff man accused of hitting another man with a vehicle, then hitting a parked car and a building on Tuesday.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charges Christopher Henderson, 37, with first-degree battery.

Reading from a probable cause affidavit from Detective Sgt. Mike Roberts, Deputy Prosecutor Caleb Conrad said police were sent to 810 S. Chestnut at 1:30 p.m. in response to a reported armed disturbance.

Both the victim and Henderson were taken to Jefferson Regional Hospital and when the victim was interviewed, he told police he was working at the detail shop when Henderson arrived and began to stare at him which resulted in n altercation. He said he got a ride home to avoid a confrontation and when he got there, Henderson pulled up in a vehicle and hit him, then a parked car and structure.

Henderson was taken to the Detective Office where he waived his right to an attorney and then agreed to give a statement which Conrad read to the court.

Court records show that Henderson has a pending charge of aggravated assault on a family or household member. The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Henderson, who was ordered to have no contact with the victim until the case is settled.
