A Jonesborough man was arrested early this morning after allegedly punching his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach and pointing a rifle at his own head.

Jonathan L. Roten, 28, 106 Clover Run, Jonesborough, was arrested about 1 a.m. after a Washington County Sheriff's Deputy was called to his residence.

In a court record, Deputy Jimmy Martin said Roten's girlfriend, Dawn Bates, reported that she and Roten had been arguing over two children when he left the residence on foot claiming that he was going to Woodridge hospital for treatment of a mental condition.
