Wrestling Standout Accused of Breaking and Entering, Assault



A former standout wrestler from Har-Ber High School in Springdale has been arrested this past Sunday after he broke into an assisted living facility and assaulted the staff, police said.

Treyton Baker, 18, was arrested in connection with commercial burglary and first degree criminal mischief, which are both felonies.

Baker also faces misdemeanor charges for 3rd degree battery, 2nd degree assault, harassment, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public intoxication.

Baker jerked open the locked doors of the facility, according to the report. Two staff members said he started going towards them, yelling and tearing down decorations.

After refusing to leave Baker was forced into an activities room. With the door locked behind him, Baker started throwing items and pulled a French door from its frame.

After seeing staff members who have locked themselves inside a separate room, Baker demanded their shirts while yelling that he was a god.

Shortly after he encountered a female staff member, he demanded her shirt and started to pull the collar down from her shoulder. During the struggle, Baker kissed the staff member’s cheek and told her she was his wife, according to report. Staff then managed to push Baker out the entry doors where Springdale police met him and took him into custody following a brief struggle.



Baker, who told police he had taken several hits of acid, caused roughly $2,500 damages when he broke the locking mechanism on the facility’s entry doors, according to the report.

Baker was named to the All-Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wrestling team as a senior in 2016 after finishing second in the Class 6A-7A state tournament. He compiled a 61-9 record during the season and tallied 168 career wins over four years at Har-Ber.

In February, Baker signed a letter of intent to wrestle at the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville.

He was released Sunday from the Washington County Detention Center after posting a partial bond of $5,000.
