JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -  Bail for a Laurel physician has been set after an allegation of abuse.

A justice court judge set a $350,000 cash bond for Doctor Sudhir Pujari. Pujari is charged with burglary and aggravated assault.

Investigators say Pujari allegedly broke into his girlfriend's home and beat her with his hands and a candle stick holder.

It was also revealed that DUI charges are pending against Pujari in the city of Laurel.

Jones County Assistant District Attorney J. Roland Parrish said the doctor could be facing additional charges in relation to the burglary and assault.
