A Dallas Center man allegedly assaulted the mother of his son early Saturday in a fit of drunken rage.
Jessie Glen Adams, 39, of 1800 Linden St., Dallas Center, was charged with third or subsequent offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness.
The incident began about 2 a.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of Linden Street in Dallas Center, where a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.
The female victim told the deputy that she came home to the residence about 1:30 a.m. after work and found Adams in a “drunk and irritable” frame of mind, according to court records.
The victim said that Adams at some point “became upset and was yelling profanities” and that while the victim “did not know what he was upset about,” she “knew from prior domestic abuse issues, she should stay away from him,” according to court records.
The victim said that Adams then “pushed her to the floor of the apartment,” and a witness to the alleged assault intervened and “physically restrained” Adams until the arrival of law enforcement.
Adams is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $5,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Feb. 2 in Dallas County District Court.
Adams’ “complete criminal history shows multiple convictions of domestic assault in both Iowa and Alabama from the years of 2002 to 2019,” according to court records. Adams was convicted of assault causing bodily injury or mental illness in 2016 in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of first-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness in 2018 in Dallas County District Court, and he was convicted of false imprisonment and second-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness in 2019 in Dallas County District Court.
