Robert Jay Aaron, 30, of Sulphur Springs was booked into Hopkins County jail for aggravated assault of a family or household member with a weapon, as ordered by 8th Judicial District Judge Eddie Northcutt, in “amended/altered court-ordered conditions of community supervision,” according to arrest reports.
The amendment reportedly directs Aaron to remain in the county jail from 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9, to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, as part of a required 6-day state jail commitment; Aaron was taken into custody at 7:17 p.m. Friday, and walked into the county jail by deputy Thomas Patterson, according to arrest and jail reports.
Aaron was originally arrested on the assault charge on June 30, 2017. Sulphur Springs Police responded at 11 p.m. June 30, 2017, where they were told Aaron grabbed a female victim and knocked her to the ground holding a knife to her throat, police alleged in reports at the time of his arrest. He remained in the county jail until July 10, 2017, according to jail reports.
That marked his third violence charge in two years. He was first arrested on April 21, 2016 for injury to a child, elderly or disabled person and assault of a family or household member that impeded breathing, according to arrest and jail reports.
Aaron was accused on April 21, 2016, of choking and hitting a female during an ongoing argument at an FM 3505 residence. Deputies reported the woman had red markings on her neck that supported the claim, but refused medical attention. The woman was concerned for her child, who she was reportedly holding when Aaron pushed her against a wall. The child reportedly complained afterward of right arm pain. The child’s arm, from elbow to the shoulder was red and swelling, deputies alleged in reports following Aaron’s arrest in 2016. When deputies contacted Aaron about the altercation, he allegedly admitted to choking the woman, but claimed she struck him first.
He remained in the county jail on both the injury to a child and assault impeding breathing charge from April 21 until May 4, according to jail reports. He spent another night in the county jail following his arrest May 15, 2016, for violation of bond and/or protective order, according to jail reports.
Aaron was sentenced to a 6-month commitment in a substance abuse felony punishment facility and jailed Oct. 26, 2017, according to jail reports.
