ORMOND BEACH, Fla. —

A Volusia County surgeon with a history of domestic violence is back behind bars Monday night.

According to Ormond Beach police, Newfield violated an injunction his wife filed against him last month after he allegedly hit her in front of their children. A police report states she suffered an injury to the face.

Police said they don't know why Dr. Jeffrey Newfield was so close to his wife in an Ormond Beach neighborhood Sunday. Police measured the distance and found he was at a friend's house, just 287 feet away from his wife. The injunction ordered that he stay more than 500 feet from her.

A police report said Newfield's wife saw her husband's car parked in the neighbor's driveway as she looked for the family's dog. She called police who arrested Newfield.

Newfield is an orthopedic surgeon who has an office on U.S. Route 1 in Ormond Beach and has had several arrests in the past.

Police said Newfield was uncooperative when he was arrested twice in the past few months.

Newfield is expected to bond out of jail sometime Monday evening.
