A 37-year-old Weston, Idaho man was arrested Thursday night after allegedly threatening to shot a woman in the head. David Kelley was booked into the Cache County Jail on suspicion of felony aggravated assault and assaulting a police officer. He is being held without bail.
A press release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said they received a domestic disturbance report around 5:30 p.m. The caller, who was a juvenile, reported that Kelley had a handgun and was holding it to the head of a female.
Dispatch operators were able to keep the caller on the phone as law enforcement responded to the Weston home. The juvenile also said that Kelley had two firearms in his possession, and the victims had barricaded themselves inside a bedroom.
A Franklin County deputy, Preston Police officer and a Sgt. from the Idaho State Police arrived on the scene. They approached the front door of the residence and called out for Kelley to come to them. He then revealed himself and dropped a handgun and shotgun when directed.
The press release claimed that as law enforcement tried to arrest Kelley though, he refused to follow commands to get on the ground and physically resisted. During the scuffle, he allegedly tried to grab one of the officer’s firearms.
Kelley was tased and then subjected himself to arrest. No shots were fired.
One of the offers received a minor injury to his head. Investigators later examined the suspect’s firearms and found both were loaded.
Charges against Kelley are pending the investigation.
