Reported armed disturbance leads to arrest


A reported armed disturbance Thursday resulted in the arrest of a woman who allegedly pointed a rifle at another woman on the parking lot of the public library.

Cynetria Myles, 38, who is on probation and has residential burglary and theft of property charges pending, was allegedly “too intoxicated to be interviewed,” Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing for Myles on Frday.

Detective Chris Wieland of the Pine Bluff Police Department said in a probable-cause affidavit that the alleged victim told police she had been in a relationship with Myles but that had ended. She said she had gone to the library and Myles blocked her car in, pointed a rifle at her and threatened to kill her and other people.

Kizer said the alleged victim drove home and Myles followed her, and was there when police arrived.

A .22-caliber rifle was found in the vehicle Myles was driving.

At Kizer’s request, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 cash-only bond for Myles after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with terroristic threatening and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Bridgforth also ordered Myles to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Myles.
