An Arnoldsburg man was arrested last week after he chased down the car of his former girlfriend, blocking her vehicle, and assaulting her.
Noah Alan Bailey, 20, of Spring Run, according to a criminal complaint, encountered Alisha Warner driving her vehicle on Rt. 16 at Orma, after which he chased Warner north for several miles to the intersection of Crummies Creek-Rt. 16, when he "pulled in front of her to block her vehicle."
Inside the Warner car was the couples six-month-old baby and Dillon Murphy. Bailey, according to the complaint, opened the car door, "grabbed (Warner) by the arm and pulled her to the ground," causing some external injuries, and then "attempted to get at Dillon Murphy, who was in the passenger seat."
Calhoun EMS and state trooper E. M. workman responded to the scene.
The complaint says Warner attempted to quiet her ex-boyfriend as he started to assault Murphy, "the baby was screaming and crying at this point," with Bailey continuing to strike Murphy.
The complaint says Bailey struck Murphy 10-15 times, once to the right ear.
Warner, according to the complaint, continued to plead with Bailey regarding their child's continued screaming, with Bailey responding, "He's my son as well."
"Murphy stated that during the incident he was pushed into the backseat on top of (the baby) which was in a car seat," says the complaint.
The baby's mother said the baby "threw up" while screaming.
Bailey was charged with domestic battery/assault on his ex-girlfriend and assault and battery on Murphy. He was also charged with child abuse/neglect creating risk of injury to the child.
Charges have been dropped against Bailey in Roane County after the victim of an alleged crime did not show in court.
Bailey had been charged with breaking and entering property at Walton, the owner reported six guns and equipment removed during the incident.
