A reported disturbance on the west side of Pine Bluff Wednesday morning resulted in the arrest of a woman who allegedly hit a man in the head with a skillet.

During a court hearing Thursday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Earlis Piggee was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center where he received four staples to the head after Laverne Dudley, 45, reportedly struck him with a cast iron skillet.

Detective Sam Atkinson reported that police were sent to 1501 S. Lee St. at 8:14 a.m. and when they arrived, found Piggee with a wound to his head and neck and blood on his shirt.

Kizer said Piggee told police he and Dudley were involved in an argument about cleaning up the house and while he was held by two other people, Dudley picked up a cast iron skillet and hit him.

Kizer said Dudley had an extensive criminal history, including felony convictions in Cook County, Ill.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $50,000 bond for Dudley after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with second-degree domestic battery.

Kearney also ordered Dudley, who Kizer said is related to Piggee, to have no contact with him until the case is settled, and to come back to court March 22.
