Man in jail for aggravated assault, police later find weapon

KIMBERLY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) UPDATED: A Kimberly man is facing charges for aggravated assault after police say he threatened a woman with a gun.

On Thursday, police responded to a call of a domestic disturbance where the accused had left the house.

Police matched the description the callers gave to a car on the road and tried to pull it over.

The driver, Bobby Brown, pulled into a parking lot and got out of the car, acting “belligerent.”

Police detained him and took him back to the house where the alleged assault happened.

They searched the home and found marijuana and paraphernalia, and the victims told the police what happened.

After Brown got into a fight with her daughter, one woman said, she followed Brown into his room to confront him.

The woman said Brown said, “I’ll take care of you,” and pointed a gun at her.

She said, go ahead and shoot me, but she said Brown took the gun and two magazines as he left.

Brown denies having a gun, and police initially couldn't find one.

On Monday, Kimberly-Hansen Police Chief Jeffery Perry said the weapon was found Friday morning and secured by the department. Perry said there is no threat to the general public.

Police recommended Brown be charged with aggravated assault, DUI refusal, driving without privileges and possession of marijuana/paraphernalia. However, he’s only being charged with aggravated assault, a felony.

His bond is set at $100,000, and his preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 13.
