A Neosho man is jailed on felony counts of first-degree domestic assault and unlawful use of a weapon after a huge police response at 4:45 p.m. Thursday to the 500 block of West South Street.

“It was a physical disturbance,” Chief David Kennedy observed. “There was choking involved. Two victims in the home stated a firearm was brandished and they heard the trigger pulled on the gun but it never discharged.”

The victims were provided access to victims’ advocates, and Kennedy said they were granted emergency orders of protection.

Ronald Beaty is held on a $50,000 cash bond, a $2,500 surety bond, and Newton County Jail officials indicated he was also held on a $5,000 surety bond on a count of endangering the welfare of a child.

Brooke Francis, 29, was arrested and charged with driving while revoked/driving while suspended.

She was pulled over at 8:52 a.m. Thursday in the 13500 block of Highway AA near Lyon Drive when Kennedy said an officer who knew she was revoked saw her driving.

Officers answered a stealing call at 4:40 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of West Brook Street.

Two pair of women’s pants valued at $50 that had been ordered online which Kennedy said were tracked as being delivered to the home were never received and were apparently stolen before the resident got to them.

Police responded to the second accident involving a Neosho school bus last week on Thursday.

No injuries were reported when Kennedy said the school bus pulled out in front of a vehicle on Malcolm Mosby Drive as it was leaving the parking lot of the B&B Theatres Neosho Cinema 6.

Police responded to that call at 2:49 p.m.

No students or the driver were injured in a Tuesday morning wreck initiated by a motorist who police said pulled out in front of a school bus at High and Sherman streets. Fire personnel reported that motorist asked to be hospitalized because of pain about 10 minutes after the crash.
