Officers say Dennis Bree, 37, was trying to choke a woman in his truck and was driving recklessly near West End and Sunset on Saturday.
When an off-duty Arkansas State Police trooper tried to arrest him, police say Bree kicked the officer in the groin and took off.
Police say Bree sped right through a red light on Sunset, causing a four-car accident.
Officers managed to arrest him afterward.
They say he and the woman were both highly intoxicated.
She was charged with public intoxication and endangering the welfare of a minor because there was also a two-year-old child in the truck.
Bree now faces a string of charges, including domestic battery, DWI, assault on an officer and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Both the woman and the child were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
Two people in other cars were also treated for minor injuries.
