BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) -

A Brookland man faces two felony charges after police say he forced his way into a home and threatened to beat the occupants with a baseball bat. 

Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause Monday to charge Zachary Neely McCain with first-degree terroristic threatening and breaking or entering.

According to court documents, McCain went to a home on West Matthews Saturday night and “started screaming and yelling” at the residents.

The victims claimed McCain then forced his way into the home and damaged several items before they could get him outside and lock the door.

“The victims stated McCain then kicked in the front door to the home, shoved one of the victims, and threatened to bash their head in with a bat,” the affidavit stated.

The victims also allege McCain threatened to “come back with a gun to shoot them.”

During a Mirandized interview with detectives, McCain reportedly admitted to kicking in the door and ripping items off the walls and flipping over tables.

He also told investigators he had no “clear recollection” of the events, saying that he “blacked out in anger.”

McCain is currently free on a $2,000 bond awaiting an April 27 appearance in circuit court.

Judge Fowler said he would also issue a no-contact order for the victims.
