A Council Bluffs man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Monday after being arrested in Council Bluffs on charges of first-offense domestic abuse assault and interference with official acts.
Shayne Michael Coldwell, 24, of 825 First Ave., Council Bluffs, was arrested on a Dallas County warrant for failure to appear on original charges of ongoing criminal conduct-influence enterprise and first-offense possession of a controlled substance.
In the May 2015 incident near the Jordan Creek shopping center, Coldwell used “a stolen credit card to make three separate purchases at” a West Des Moines sporting goods retailer and was later found to be in possession of “part of a marijuana joint.”
Monday’s incident began about 2:15 a.m. in the 800 block of First Avenue in Council Bluffs, where officers of the Council Bluffs Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.
The female victim told the officers that Coldwell allegedly “grabbed ahold of the victim’s hair and pulled her to the floor,” according to court records.
Coldwell was taken into custody, handcuffed and placed in a patrol vehicle but then “tried to immediately get out by kicking and screaming at officers as it appeared that Coldwell was under the influence of narcotics,” according to court records.
Coldwell is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $5,000 cash-only bond. He is scheduled for an initial appearance Feb. 9 in Dallas County District Court. He is scheduled for a hearing Feb. 19 in Pottawattamie County District Court.
