A report that an 18-year-old Pine Bluff boy had threatened to kill his mother Tuesday resulted in the boy’s arrest on a felony charge.
Derrick McAfee also allegedly pointed a gun at his mother, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Wednesday for McAfee.
Detective Jacqueline Stevenson reported that police were sent to a house in the 1900 block of West 16th Avenue Tuesday night where McAfee’s mother, Lakecha Parker, reported the threats.
Kizer said Parker also showed police several text messages from McAfee containing threats.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $100,000 bond for McAfee after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with terroristic threatening.
The judge also ordered McAfee to have no contact with his mother until the case is settled and to come back to court Oct. 3.
McAfee said he would hire his own attorney.
