Police have accused an Iowa City man of threatening the mother of his unborn baby while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Ollie Mitchell Jr., 53, 2401 Highway 6 E. No. 2805, was charged Sunday with domestic-abuse assault and habitual alcohol violation.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Mitchell allegedly acted disruptively and caused havoc. Mitchell had been reportedly up for two-days straight smoking crack and drinking alcohol.

Mitchell, apparently frustrated about a money problem, allegedly tore a television off the wall. The woman retreated to her bedroom and locked the door. Mitchell allegedly forced his way into the bedroom, cornered her, and told her he would "kill her and kick her unborn baby out of her."

Mitchell has prior convictions for domestic assault on May 11, 2000, and April 5, 2007.

A habitual alcohol violation is an aggravated misdemeanor; domestic-abuse assault is a Class-D felony.
