A Jessamine County man faces charges of menacing and terroristic threatening after he allegedly threatened to shoot sheriff's deputies while they were investigating a domestic disturbance last week.
Gregory Alan Shaffer, 39, hid in a bedroom when Jessamine County sheriff's deputies arrived at his residence at 338 Vince Road the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 5, according to an arrest report. Shaffer told deputies he had guns with him and threatened to shoot before he stepped out of the bedroom and the deputies employed a Taser on him.
"He did have weapons in the house with him, a .357 Magnum and a rifle, but nobody got hurt," chief deputy Allen Peel said Thursday. "They took him into custody by use of the Taser, and that was it."
Deputies were on the scene for about an hour, Peel said.
Shaffer faces charges of menacing, a class-B misdemeanor; and third-degree terroristic threatening, a class-A misdemeanor. He is being held in the Jessamine County Detention Center on a $10,000 cash bond.
