A reported armed disturbance Sunday afternoon in the Dollarway area resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly pointed a gun at two people and threatened to kill them.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said Michael Tippen, 38, reportedly pulled a knife on the victims then got a .45-caliber handgun and pointed the gun at the two.

Detective Jerry Lambert reported that the male victim told police he and his girlfriend were visiting friends at a house in the 6300 block of Jones Street at about 1 p.m. when he got into an argument with Tippen.

Police reported that when Tippen was arrested, he reportedly waived his right to an attorney and told officers he had pulled a knife and also pointed a gun at the alleged victims.

Kizer said Tippen had previously been convicted of a felony and should not have had the gun.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $50,000 bond for Tippen after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threatening, and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Kearney also ordered Tippen, who said he would hire his own attorney, to have no contact with the victims and to come back to court June 19 at 9 a.m.
