Domestic dispute ends with man tased, arrested

MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - A domestic disturbance ended with deputies tasing a man and arresting him on felony assault charges.

Thursday afternoon a woman called the Baxter County Sheriff's Office to report her husband, 44-year-old Kane Allen Gott of Mountain Home, had injured her.

The woman said Gott was also "threatening to kill officers when they showed up at the residence," Sheriff John Montgomery stated in a news release.

She told deputies Gott had locked himself in a back room and had knives and a pellet gun.

Several deputies responded to the scene and secured the victim and a 12-year-old child.

Montgomery said deputies then observed Gott through a window and saw he had a dagger and a bat.

Several minutes later deputies made contact with Gott. When he resisted arrest, "deputies used a TASER device to gain control of him," Montgomery said.

Deputies reported finding other knives and weapons "in proximity" to Gott.

He was taken to the Baxter County Detention Center and booked on a felony charge of aggravated assault on a family or household member and a felony charge of endangering the welfare of a minor.

Gott remains in jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond awaiting a circuit court appearance on July 14.
