LAMAR — Arkansas authorities say they've arrested a 69-year-old man who pointed a loaded assault rifle at a deputy.
The Times Record reported that Kenneth Earl King was arrested Monday on suspicion of two counts of aggravated assault, second-degree battery and terroristic threatening.
Johnson County deputies say they went to the Lamar home to serve a court order. They say the man answered the door and pointed an assault rifle at a deputy's stomach. They say the man eventually discarded the rifle and fled into a back bedroom.
The deputies say the man fought and struck the deputies. They say they shot him with a Taser to take him into custody.
He was released from the Johnson County jail Tuesday on $15,000 bond. He is to appear in Sept. 5, the sheriff's office said.
