Press Release

November 23, 2015

On 11/21/15 at approximately 9:30 pm, the police department received a call from a local apartment complex. It was reported that John Rick, 46 of Mountain Home, forced his way into the apartment of his former girlfriend.

Once inside the apartment, he was told to leave, but he refused. His former girlfriend said she was going to call 911. John Rick pulled a knife and told her that if she did, he would cut her to pieces. An altercation then occurred that resulted in the victim being struck several times, but she was not seriously injured. Following the altercation, John Rick left the area.

Officers located John Rick a short time later and took him into custody after a short foot pursuit. Rick was intoxicated and in possession of a knife.

John Rick was charged with the following:

Aggravated Assault; class D felony

Criminal Trespass; class B misdemeanor

Fleeing; class C misdemeanor

Public Intoxication; class C Misdemeanor

Possession of a Controlled Substance; class A misdemeanor 

He was incarcerated in the Baxter County Detention Center and is being held without bond.  

John Rick was arrested earlier this year when he shot through the front door of an apartment and fled from officers on a moped.
