MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - A man was arrested after reportedly threatening to kill his wife and himself.
Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says his office responded to the 800-block of Blue Wing Road in Mountain Home for a domestic disturbance Tuesday morning.
A woman called the sheriff's office just before 8 a.m. to report her husband threatened to kill her and then himself.
The man was later identified as 61-year-old Tom A. Turner.
Turner's wife was able to leave the residence and waited for deputies to arrive.
According to Montgomery, Turner was said to be armed with a handgun and locked himself inside the residence.
After about an hour, deputies got Turner outside and he was arrested.
Turner was booked on a third-degree misdemeanor charge of assault on a family or household member. A no-contact order was served to him.
He was released from jail on a $500 bond Tuesday morning and will appear in district court on March 30.
