Bartlesville Police say a woman being assaulted by her husband fought back and evidence of the struggle can be seen in his booking photo.

Police arrested Derrick Maynard, 32, at a home in the 1300 block of South Elm at about 10 p.m. on December 16, 2013.

According to a court affidavit, Maynard's wife told police Maynard was drinking whiskey when he started yelling and threw a Wii remote at her. She told police Maynard pumped a pellet rifle then pointed it at her and said "you deserve to die."

The affidavit states Maynard also punched his wife in the head. She told officers she kicked him several times in self-defense.

Police say Maynard appeared to be drunk and was unable to keep his balance. Officers also located the pellet rifle in the living room.

They booked Maynard into the Washington County jail on complaints of aggravated assault with a weapon and threatening to kill.

Court records show Maynard pleaded guilty in September to domestic assault and battery and was sentenced to 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling.

He remains in jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. His next court appearance is set for January 3, 2014.
