Report of threats and shots fired leads to arrest


A reported armed disturbance in southwest Pine Bluff Thursday afternoon resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly threatened to kill his girlfriend then fired shots outside her house.

Damar Scott, 21, allegedly argued with Cynthia Brewer after going to Brewer’s mother’s house, Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable cause affidavit.

During a court hearing Friday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Brewer’s mother let him in the house and he went to Brewer’s bedroom where he woke her up then allegedly pulled out a black pistol and threatened to kill Brewer.

Rucker reported that Brewer walked outside the house and Scott followed her, then after Brewer went back inside, Scott allegedly fired five shots in the air before leaving the area.

He was arrested later at a relative’s house and reportedly admitted making the threats and firing the shots.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 bond for Scott after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with aggravated assault on a family or household member and committing a terroristic act.

Bridgforth also ordered Scott to have no contact with Brewer until the case is settled, and told him to come back to court Dec. 14.
