According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, Houk was charged with two counts each of kidnapping, child abuse, injuring a spouse and child detention, and one count each of assault with a firearm, criminal threats, fleeing a pursuing peace officer's motor vehicle, possession of a firearm by a felon, fugitive from justice and transient's violation of registration, a misdemeanor.
Houk is accused of pointing a loaded firearm at his spouse on May 1 after they got into a fight in the family's RV parked in Malibu. He is then accused of fleeing and leading law enforcement on a chase through Bakersfield and abandoning his RV in an orchard near Shafter. He was then arrested in Barstow.
Prosecutors are recommending bail be set at $1 million. The case is still under investigation.
