BILOXI -- Police responding to a domestic complaint Thursday morning arrived at a Biloxi home to find a man had doused gasoline on a woman, a pile of clothes and throughout a back room during an argument, Detective Sgt. Donnie Dobbs said.
Officers intervened before the situation worsened, Dobbs said.
Police arrested Stanley Wallace Blackwell, 38, on charges of attempted arson fourth degree and simple domestic assault after two previous convictions. Both charges are felonies.
Dobbs said someone who lives in the 600 block of Thelma Drive called to report hearing an argument shortly before 6:15 a.m.
Police learned Blackwell was wanted on an outstanding warrant for another felony domestic assault charge involving the same woman.
He was booked at the Harrison County jail on bonds that total $160,000.
Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain set bonds on the new charges at $150,000. A bond of $10,000 had previously been set on the warrant for the other assault charge.
