A Horseshoe Bend man has been charged with sexual assault in the second degree after he allegedly attacked his wife.

According to investigators, Michael L. Boss, 25, forced his wife to commit unwanted sexual acts with him Dec. 29 in the Boss' Horseshoe Bend home.

Boss's wife contacted authorities the next day to report the incident, according the Izard County Clerk's Office. Boss denied the accusation.

Boss' bond was unknown at press time. He is slated to appear in Izard County Circuit Court later this month.

A Mammoth Spring man has been charged with multiple felonies after a confrontation with his ex-wife, Vicky Bamber, at her home March 8 south of Mammoth Spring.

Roger Lee Bamber, 46, has been charged with battery in the first degree, a class B felony; and commercial burglary, a class C felony.

Fulton County Sheriff's Deputy James Laney said Bamber broke into his ex-wife's house and began hitting her in the face.

During the fight, Laney said, Bamber took $200 and his daughter's Social Security card out of Vicky Bamber's purse.

Vicky Bamber was transported from the scene by ambulance to the Fulton County Hospital were she received treatment for her injuries.

Bamber was arrested and taken to the Fulton County jail.

Bond for Bamber was set at $30,000. He posted bond the next day. Bamber appeared in Fulton County Court March 15.

A Thayer man who attacked a Mammoth Spring police officer last year has been charged with one count of terroristic threatening, a class D felony, after he threatened Fulton County law officers.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff's Department, Joseph Ray Sacra, 25, was driving erratically Feb. 20 in the southbound lane on Highway 9 north of Salem when he was stopped by deputies Scott Holloway and Terry Walker of the Fulton County Sheriff's Department.

Walker and Salem Police officer Heath Everett, who had just arrived, approached the vehicle and asked Sacra if he had been drinking, Holloway said.

According to an affidavit released by the Fulton County Clerk's Office, Sacra became belligerent with Walker and Everett.

"I will kick everyone of your a.....," Sacra allegedly said. "If you don't believe me ask Jamie Turnbough. I'll f... you up just like I done him."

Turnbough, a Mammoth Spring Police officer, was attacked by Sacra last year.

Officers transported Sacra from the scene to the Fulton County jail and then to the Horseshoe Bend Police Station to take a breathalyzer test, Holloway said.

He said Sacra passed both breathalyzer tests administered to him, but continued to threaten officers.

Sacra attempted to flee from officers as they left the Horseshoe Bend Police Department, according to the affidavit.

Holloway said Sacra was apprehended and transported back to the Fulton County jail.

After arriving at the jail, Sacra refused to leave the patrol car and threatened to kick out the back window of the car, Holloway said.

Fulton County deputy Kevin Burns ordered Sacra out of the patrol car, but Sacra refused, Holloway said.

Burns fired his Taser gun at Sacra and he submitted, according to the affidavit.

Sacra was transported to the Fulton County Hospital to receive medical treatment for injuries related to the Taser shot. Holloway said Sacra verbally abused hospital staff and officers while at the hospital and refused treatment.

Sacra posted bond the next day. Sacra is slated to appear in Fulton County Circuit Court this month.
