The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says they arrested an Evansville man a second time for a crime committed against a woman he allegedly abused and confined late last week. 

John Thomas Wells III was arrested on Monday for violating a court order prohibiting contact with his victim of an earlier assault. The court order was issued as a condition of being released on bond. 

Wells was arrested for multiple felony charges on Friday, March 15 after he allegedly held the victim against her will in his west side apartment. He allegedly beat and choked her, cut off part of her hair and poured barbeque sauce and Listerine on her.

Archer was able to contact 911 and sheriff's deputies located and arrested Wells.

Wells was able to post his bond on the March 16, allowing his release from custody. Since his release, Wells violated the conditions of his bond by repeatedly contacting the victim.

After being contacted by the victim and told of the violations, sheriff's office investigators arrested Wells for invasion of privacy, which is a Class A Misdemeanor.

His bond on that charge is currently $500.00. The sheriff's office is currently working to have Wells bond revoked on the prior charges.
