Domestic Violence Suspect Arrested After Traffic Stop

A man sought in connection with two alleged domestic violence incidents this year was taken into custody Tuesday following a traffic stop on U.S. 11E South, authorities said.

Alfonzo Devon Jordan, 25, of 307 Pinecrest Drive, was pulled over for driving 74 mph in a 55 mph zone, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Ronnie Hall said in a report.

After running a check on Jordan through the Greene County Sheriff's Department, it was found he had three outstanding warrants for his arrest, the report said.

During one incident on Sept. 11 in Greeneville, Jordan allegedly spit Skoal smokeless tobacco in the victim's face, choked her and "hit her head on the car," which had a broken windshield, Greeneville police Officer Clifford Lawing said in a report.

During an incident on May 21, a 13-month-old was spanked, "resulting in bruising on the buttocks," a report by Lt. David Crum said.

Jordan allegedly told investigators, "I just whipped her too hard," a report said.

Following the traffic stop on Tuesday, Jordan was searched and troopers found pills in a plastic baggie.

Jordan is held on charges of possession of a legend drug and warrants for aggravated domestic assault, domestic assault and violation of probation.

He was ticketed Tuesday for speeding and having no proof of insurance.

Jordan was scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court.
