A Pine Bluff man who allegedly bit his girlfriend during an argument last Friday will have to post a $25,000 bond to be released from the county detention center following a court hearing Tuesday.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Anthony Bradley, 44, with second-degree domestic battery.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Bradley was arrested after police were sent to a residence in the 1900 block of West 29th Avenue at 2 a.m. Friday.

Detective Jacqueline Stevenson reported that the alleged victim showed officers the injury to her face she said was caused by Bradley.

Kizer said in addition to the new allegation, Bradley has a domestic battery charge pending in circuit court.

In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Bradley to have no contact with the alleged victim and to come back to court June 19.

Kearney declined to appoint the public defenderís office to represent Bradley, who said he did have a source of income.
