A $100,000 cash-only bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly stabbed another man during an altercation Sunday.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Christopher Fletcher, 36, with first-degree battery.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer asked for the cash only-bond after saying Fletcher “has a long history of violence” dating back to 1993 and “is on parole,” a statement Fletcher denied.

Detective Jeremy Oswalt said in a probable cause affidavit that police were sent to an apartment in the 3700 block of Miramar Drive Sunday afternoon where a witness said Fletcher, her ex-boyfriend, had come to the apartment where two men were playing cards and smoking cigarettes, and Fletcher got into a verbal altercation with them.

Oswalt said in the affidavit Fletcher allegedly threatened to kill one of the men, then went to his vehicle, got a large knife, and stabbed one of the men, who were not identified in court.

Kizer said the victim was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Fletcher to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Fletcher.
