Arrest made after reported armed disturbance


A reported armed disturbance at Redfield on Saturday afternoon resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly pointed a gun at another man.

Sheriff’s Investigator John Bean reported that the victim wrestled the gun away from Brent Thompson, 31, who was found at the back of the residence in the 200 block of NCTR Road after deputies responded to the reported disturbance at 1:30 p.m.

Bean reported that Deputy Harley Herrin recovered a small .380-caliber handgun that the victim said he had taken away from Thompson, who reportedly had an odor of intoxicants and was found with his pants around his ankles and his underwear at his knees.

The victim told deputies he and other people had gone to the house to help a female move her belongings when he was confronted by Thompson.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $5,000 bond for Thompson after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with aggravated assault.

Thompson, who was also charged with public intoxication, a misdemeanor, said he would hire his own attorney.
