Jonesboro police responding to a fight involving firearms ended up arresting a man on six felony charges.

The fight happened at Cedar Heights around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

There, Jefferson made contact with Terrance Williams and noticed a marijuana scale with residue on it in plain view.

A man inside the home was on felony probation, allowing Jefferson to conduct a probation search of the residence.
