Jones Co. man faces possible third conviction of domestic violence

Pitipong Daengbunga, 31 Pitipong Daengbunga, 31
JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Jones County Sheriff's Department. 

 On Dec. 12, Jones County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a possible domestic violence call on Thiac Drive in Laurel. 

A neighbor had called stating there was fighting going on next door. 

Deputies arrived at the residence and Pitipong Daengbunga, 31 originally of Bangkok, Thailand, answered the door with visible scratches on his face.  When questioned, Daengbunga said he and his wife had a fight. 

Deputies then asked Daengbunga to step outside while they spoke with his wife. 

The victim said Daengbunga was playing video games while she was on her phone. 

She began taking pictures with her phone when he started laughing then suddenly started hitting her with his fists. 

The victim ran outside as Daengbunga followed, apologizing.

Daengbunga claimed he was playing the game when he began thinking of past events with the victim that made him angry. 

He admitted to kneeing the victim in the face, choking her and slamming her head into a wall. 

The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical attention. 

It was quickly discovered Daengbunga had two previous convictions of domestic violence in 2014, involving the same victim in Jackson County. 

He was taken into custody and transported to the Jones County Adult Detention Center. 

Under Mississippi Law, if Daengbunga is convicted a third time within seven years, he will serve a maximum of 20 years in prison.

Daengbunga’s bond was set at $10,000 by Judge Billie Graham at Jones County Justice Court.
