Police said the charges stem from a domestic violence incident that took place in October, in which, according to police, Walters assaulted his ex-girlfriend with a weapon. He was incarcerated and later released.

After his release from Golden Grove, detectives said Walters returned to the same woman’s home Dec. 10, entered her dwelling without permission, threatened her by pointing a weapon in her face and assaulted her.

Walters is also charged with violating a restraining order and the terms of his probation.
