A Pine Bluff man who allegedly threatened to kill two people after a dispute about a cell phone allegedly admitting making the threats when questioned by police.
C .C. Mixon, 20, also allegedly admitted having a gun in his waistband when he confronted one of the two victims at a store where she worked last week, Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said during a court hearing Friday for Mixon.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Jerry Lambert, a female told police Mixon had sold her a cell phone and she later discovered that the phone had been stolen and would not work. She said when she tried to talk to Mixon about the phone, he made threats to kill her, and later came to her residence, where he allegedly threatened to kill her boyfriend.
Pugh said Mixon came to the convenience store where the woman worked the following day and allegedly showed the woman a gun in his pants and also made additional threats.
Lambert said when Mixon was interviewed, he allegedly admitted selling the woman a phone that didn’t work, going to her place of employment and making threats, and having a gun with him at the time.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Mixon, who Pugh said had no prior convictions or pending charges, after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with two counts of terroristic threatening.
Mixon was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims until the case is settled.
The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Mixon.
