Brian K. Rowe (mug shot BCSO)

The commander of reserve deputies in Baxter County, Arkansas has been suspended after his arrest last night (08-16-10) for misdemeanor domestic assault.
Mountain Home police chief Carry Manuel says forty year-old Brian K. Rowe, of Mountain Home, was arrested by police in Mountain Home after a verbal fight between Rowe and his estranged wife allegedly became physical when Rowe shoved his 15 year-old stepson into a doorway, cutting the boy's head.

Rowe, who has been the commander of reserve deputies for the past two years, was released on $500 bond.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery placed Rowe on administrative leave until his case is resolved in District Court.
