A Springdale man faces two felony charges after his live-in girlfriend told police he waved a gun and threatened to kill anyone who came in the house Saturday night (April 6).

Monte Jordan, 46, was booked in the Washington County Detention Center on Sunday morning and has a $5,000 bond, according to the Sheriff’s Department website. Jordan faces felony charges of aggravated assault and terroristic threatening.

A preliminary police report said Springdale officers responded to a the 1100 block of Cheatham Avenue at approximately 10:32 p.m. A woman told officers she arrived home to find her boyfriend, identified as Jordan, intoxicated, naked and screaming in the kitchen, the report said.

The woman told police Jordan got his gun from the bedroom and yelled he would “[expletive] kill anybody that comes to my house,” and “I will [shoot] the cops if they come back,” the report said. The woman told officers she knew the gun was loaded and Jordan pointed it at her numerous times while screaming curses, the report said.

The woman told officers she grabbed the gun when Jordan set it down and she removed the magazine and hid it in the bathroom, the report said. She said Jordan then got angrier, twisted her arm and pushed against a wall, the report said.

Jordan threatened to punch her in the face if she did not return the magazine, the report said. The woman managed to get away and run to a neighbor’s house, the report said.

Police arrested Jordan without incident or injury and said they found the gun in a gun case in a bedroom closet with a chambered round and the safety off, the report said. The magazine was found in the bathroom where the woman told officers she had hidden it, the report said.

The report also said Jordan had been involved in an earlier disturbance Saturday when he had cursed a woman who walked past his house. The report said Jordan left and, when he returned, drove through several lawns before parking in the driveway.

Jordan faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, according to the Sheriff’s website.
