Records show that Lowe was previously arrested on May 29, 2015, for aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
His then-girlfriend at the time accused him of assaulting her to the point that she lost consciousness.
A Texas man accused of murdering his girlfriend last year re-enacted in court the moment he woke up and discovered her dead body.
Jason Lowe, 28, has been charged with murder in the May 2016 death of Jessie Bardwell, 27, in their Richardson, Texas home.
Lowe, who claims that Bardwell's death was an accident, told jurors on Monday that they had been taking the mind-altering drug GHB before having sex in a shower where she fell and struck her head twice.
He testified that the couple decided to lie down after the fall, but when he woke up, his girlfriend was dead next to him.

He testified that Bardwell died either late on the night of May 1, 2016, or in the early hours of May 2, 2016'I should have called the police,' he told the court, adding that he 'was scared' and 'really made things worse' by putting Bardwell's body in his Audi and later leaving it on a rural property, the Dallas News reported.
He also said he couldn't call her since her 'pay as you go' mobile phone had expired.
Police left and came back to the apartment later that day, when they found the residence empty.
It's unclear if the alleged victim in that incident was Bardwell.
