A Bell County man remains in jail with no bond following his arrest for failing to appear in court.
Grant Shelton is charged with second-degree assault (domestic violence).
In April of this year, deputies with the Bell County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on KY 66 on reports of domestic violence.
According to the citation, the female in the home stated Shelton had struck her with a broken cabinet door, choked her and struck her in the face with a closed fist and caused physical injury.
Shelton was indicted by the Bell County Grand Jury on June 25.
He was instructed to appear for arraignment on July 1 but failed to appear and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Shelton was arrested on Sunday by the Bell County Sheriff’s Office and taken to the Bell County Jail where he remains.
A court appearance for Shelton has not been scheduled as of press time.
