A Killeen man is facing felony charges after police said he jumped from the second floor of an apartment complex onto the hood of a vehicle.

Darius Troy Morrow, 26, was arraigned Tuesday on a state-jail felony charge of criminal mischief in an amount of more than $1,500, but less than $20,000. Morrow was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin, who set bail at $30,000.

Morrow was arrested after Killeen police responded to a report of a violent domestic disturbance in the 500 block of Utah Street on Sunday night.

A woman at the scene told officers that Morrow grabbed her head, struck her head on a door, then threw her out of the apartment, according to an arrest affidavit.

The woman said that after Morrow assaulted her, he knocked on the door of another apartment, then jumped from the second floor of the building onto a roof of a vehicle. Morrow damaged the vehicle’s roof, hood and windshield.

As of Tuesday, Morrow was in custody in Bell County Jail.

Jail records showed Morrow also faced a charge of misdemeanor assault with bodily injury to a family member.

The bail for that charge was set at $5,000.

Potvin also arraigned Donald Daniel Eagen on an unrelated charge of possession of methamphetamine, less than 1 gram. Eagen’s bail was set at $50,000.
