Jail records show that 26-year-old Jose Angel Ponce was freed Friday from the Clark County jail pending court appearances on four charges - also including possession of a stolen vehicle and drug possession.

Officer Bill Cassell, a Las Vegas police spokesman, says Ponce was sought on a warrant charge of battery domestic violence but refused to leave the a northeast Las Vegas home when police arrived Christmas night.
