A Pine Bluff man was arrested Saturday afternoon after he allegedly pointed a gun at another man who was attempting to break up an altercation involving two women.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Henry Hayes, 34, allegedly told the man “not to move or he would kill him.”

Kizer said the incident began Saturday afternoon when police were sent to a reported disturbance on West Short Second Avenue .

Detective James Williams reported that Hayes pulled his vehicle, which also contained two females, up in front of the house and one of the females in the vehicle got into a verbal altercation with a female, which escalated into a physical altercation.

Kizer said a man who was at the house tried to intervene and Hayes pointed a gun at him before leaving the scene with the two women.

Williams reported that people at the house knew Hayes and were able to tell police where he lived, and they located Hayes and took him into custody.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Hayes after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with aggravated assault.

Bridgforth also ruled that Hayes could be charged as being a felon in possession of a firearm because of a prior conviction, but in court Monday, Hayes denied that claim, saying that he had no prior convictions.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Hayes, and he was told to come back to court July 16.
