MILFORD — A Milford man was arrested after allegedly pointing a firearm at a male.
Randale Lee Thompson II, 39, 404 W. Emeline St., Milford, is being charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony.
On Oct. 5, an officer with the Milford Police Department responded to a battery in progress involving a weapon at a residence.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, the officer was met by a male subject, who advised he got in a verbal argument with Thompson. During the argument, Thompson went to a bedroom, retrieved a black handgun and pointed the firearm at the male’s head, telling him to get out of the residence.
Officers surrounded the residence and Thompson came out of the residence to speak. An officer advised Thompson that he could not take things into his own hands. Thompson said, “It’s the only way to get them out of my house.” Thompson admitted that he pulled his weapon and displayed it, but that he didn’t point it at anyone. The officer could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Thompson’s breath.
Officers also spoke with a female subject who lives at the residence. The female said she heard the conversation and heard the slide being worked on the firearm and heard Thompson say, “Now it’s loaded.”
Thompson has already been arrested and released on his own recognizance. He has an initial hearing date set for 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, in Kosciusko Superior Court 3.
