Wilson also accused of resisting police officer in early Sunday morning incident

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (August 17, 2020) The Arkansas City Police Department arrested an Arkansas City man early Sunday morning on suspicion of domestic battery of his 40-year-old mother.

Jordan Lee Wilson, 20, was arrested on suspicion of battery-domestic violence, battery of a law enforcement officer, consumption of alcohol by a minor, criminal damage to property and interference with a law enforcement officer, all misdemeanors. He was transported to and booked into the Cowley County Jail in Winfield in lieu of $25,000 bond through Cowley County District Court in Arkansas City.

Wilson remained in custody at the time of this release.

Officers were dispatched at 2:41 a.m. Sunday to the 1100 block of North Third Street for a report of a physical disturbance between a 40-year-old Ark City woman and her son, later identified as Wilson.

Police made contact with both individuals and learned a physical altercation had taken place after the victim returned home and allegedly found numerous underage people drinking in her house.

As officers attempted to arrest Wilson, he became combative. During the altercation, one Arkansas City police officer sustained minor injuries. Wilson then was taken into custody without further incident.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
