Mobridge police arrested a man for aggravated assault after they were alerted by Aberdeen Police of a domestic situation at Ninth Avenue East residence.
Officers found a man threatening his wife with a gun.
“It turned out that the gun was a replica of a black powder pistol and was not capable of being fired with live ammunition,” said Mobridge Police Chief Justin Jungwirth. “That doesn’t matter in this situation and he was arrested for aggravated assault.”
Timothy James, 36, was arrested for the aggravated assault charge and violating parole. He made his first appearance in Fifth District Court in Selby on Monday, May 13. He is being held in the Walworth County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond. His next court appearance will be in two weeks.
