A Hot Springs Village man was arrested early Sunday after allegedly attacking his wife and fighting with police.

Ken Richard Mclaughlin, 33, who lists an address of 139 Arias Way, was taken into custody at his home around 5:45 a.m. and charged with third-degree domestic battery, punishable by up to one year in jail, and resisting arrest.

He was later released on $5,000 bond and is set to appear Sept. 25 in Garland County District Court.

According to the probable cause affidavit, officers with the Hot Springs Village Police Department responded to a Tiburon Way address to investigate a call about domestic violence that occurred the night before.

After being let in by the homeowner, officers made contact with a woman lying naked in a bed with a blanket over her. She was reportedly observed to have blood on her bottom lip and swelling to the right side of her face.

She stated her husband, later identified as Mclaughlin, was responsible for her injuries.

Due to the visible injuries on the victim, officers went to 139 Arias Way to arrest Mclaughlin.

He reportedly informed officers they were not going to take him anywhere and attempted to back into the house. Following a brief physical altercation, he was arrested and transported to the detention center.
