The arrest stems from an investigation into an incident that happened the day before, where Johncox is said to have caused physical injury to the victim by pulling their leg while on a staircase.

The victim fell down the stairs and suffered injuries in the incident. Deputies said the victim was also protected by a court order at the time of the incident.

Johncox was arraigned and will answer the charges at a later date.
