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