[Excerpt] ...An arraignment is set May 1 before Senior Circuit Judge Tom Keith. Garrett remains on administrative leave with pay... Garrett's wife, Mandi, reported domestic abuse in December to Bella Vista police... The aggravated assault charge is a result of the weapon allegation. Garrett hit the children so hard he left bruises and scratches and injured his hands, she also said, resulting in the battery charge. In addition to the criminal case, child abuse investigations are under way by the Arkansas Department of Health and Human Services, according to court documents. That department is allowed to enter and monitor the household at any time. A day care center made one report of abuse to the Child Abuse hot line. The Benton County prosecutor's office made another report based on Mandi Garrett's application for a protective order. Mandi Garrett filed for divorce in December and asked for the temporary order of protection. She later asked that a no contact order be changed to a "no violence order" to enable the family to undergo domestic violence, family and marital counseling. Garrett is not to live in the residence and must continue taking prescribed medications for anxiety and anger. He must not have violent contact with his wife, make disparaging remarks or threaten, intimidate, coerce or harass her, court documents state. Deputy Prosecutor Stephanie McLemore said Monday the state may file one additional charge of misuse of the Arkansas Crime Information Center system. An allegation that Garrett misused that system is still being investigated. Mandi Garrett told police her husband looked up men who were dating his former wife and looked up her own ex-husband...
