A Laurel man is behind bars after being accused of beating his wife.

John Logan, 28, has been charged with aggravated assault/domestic violence.

He will make his initial appearance in court Monday afternoon.

On Saturday morning, a Jones County deputy saw a woman running toward him from a parked car at a gas station on Chantilly Street. The woman’s face was bloodied, and she appeared to have been assaulted, according to JCSD.

The deputy called for assistance, and the victim also said her husband had beaten her.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The victim said the argument started over a song and escalated during a ride home from Hattiesburg to Laurel. She also said Logan had punched her in the chest and face, according to officials.

According to JCSD, Logan was arrested on scene and taken to the Jones County Adult Detention Center.
