Kenia Gibbs

Arrested in Pulaski County, AR on June 27, 2013

A man who was reportedly upset about youths throwing rocks at his house was arrested Thursday in North Little Rock after he racked a shotgun while confronting a teen girl, authorities said.

Kenia Gibbs, 30, is being held in the Pulaski County jail on charges of aggravated assault, fleeing and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

North Little Rock police went to the 1900 block of West Short 17th Street about 7:30 p.m. to investigate a report a man was outside his home with a shotgun.

Police say they found Gibbs in the area and he initially fled before being taken into custody.

The 15-year-old victim said Gibbs "was saying that juvenile females were throwing rocks at his house" when he went inside, returned with a shotgun and then racked it in front of her, according to an arrest report.

"She said Gibbs walked around in his front yard yelling at her," police wrote in the report. "She stated she was scared Gibbs was going to shoot her."

Police say Gibbs, a felon, acknowledged getting the shotgun and going to his front door, but he said he never went outside with it. His girlfriend told investigators he did take it into the yard, the report said.

Police found the gun inside.

Gibbs was being held Friday morning with bail not yet set. A preliminary court date is set for July 2.

This case may be one of mismatched weapons but the girl should have been charged with trespassing or something.

I agree he was not completely justified in defending his home. However, if you are a FELON in possession of a firearm, it's not a good idea to brandish it. Not a smart guy, but then again, he's a felon.

I was going to say something about him being a man and pulling a gun on girls. This day and age you have these bad butt girls who try to be just as tough as these boys, so with that said, these dang little heathens need to find something better to do than messing around other people's property. It's too dang hot to be pissing people off.

I figure that Mr. Gibbs is very qualified to know a bad actor when he sees one. You know what they say; "It takes one to know one" and those youths were probably every bit the thugs he judged them to be. Granted, he probably should not have even had the shotgun let alone threaton the girls with it,,,,,,but even a felon has the right to be left alone and not aggrevated.

From readng the comments, about all that can be said is "AMEN". The man defended his property and had every right to do so. Somebody throws rocks at my home had better be fast and outrun birdshot in the butt.

What's missing from this story? Whether or not the girl was throwing the rocks! And everyone jumps to his defense.
