Ambulance Service Owner Arrested In Domestic Abuse Case
The owner of a local ambulance service was arrested Nov. 15 after he was abusive against his family, according to a Barling police detective.
Wesley McCabe was booked Nov. 15 into the Sebastian County Detention Center on a $1,500 bond, according to a jailer at the Sebastian County Detention Center. He was released the same day, the jailer said.
McCabe faces charges of domestic battery, interfering with emergency communications and endangering the welfare of a minor, said Det. Jerry Foley of the Barling Police Department.
McCabe was the owner of Care One EMS ambulance service in Van Buren, Foley said. He shut down the service earlier this year, he told 5NEWS in a Feb. 1 report. The service was shut down following tax problems with the state, an official with the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration told 5NEWS in February.
Foley said authorities received a complaint from a member of McCabe’s family Nov. 4, claiming he was abusive, threatened them with violence and was physically destructive around the home. Following an investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for McCabe, and he was taken into custody by authorities, Foley said.
