LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing charges after an alleged dispute with his wife that turned violent.

It happened around 6 a.m. Christmas Eve at a residence in the 3600 block of Taylor Blvd.

According to an arrest report, that's where 36-year-old James W. Reed was involved in a dispute with his wife when he allegedly fired a high-powered BB gun through a door at his wife several times.

The BBs went through the door and struck a closet door behind it.

The victim also told police that Reed grabbed her by the hair and slammed her into a wall, damaging the wall.

The victim has an EPO that was served on the same day of the allegations.

Police arrested Reed at his home in the 2100 block of Howard Street a few hours after the alleged incident.

He's charged with wanton endangerment and assault during a domestic dispute.
