A $10,000 bond was set Tuesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly threatened a female relative.


Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Bobby Richardson, 19 ,with first-degree terroristic threatening.


According to a probable-cause affidavit from Detective Steven Rucker of the Pine Bluff Police Department, Richardson was arrested Sunday after police were sent to a house in the Dollarway area.


The alleged victim said Richardson had "threatened to shoot up the house," Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Pugh said during the court hearing.


A witness to the incident told police he was awakened by Richardson and the alleged victim arguing. According to the witness, Richardson said he was "going to bust her in the head and shoot up the house."


Records at the prosecutor’s office indicated that Richardson pleaded guilty to residential burglary and theft of property on Jan. 10 and was sentenced to 60 months probation. The final sentencing order in that case has not been filed.


In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Richardson to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
