Ian Michael Tice


      A Mountain Home man, 35 year old IAN MICHAEL TICE, has been arrested and charged with several offenses after deputies responded to a disturbance Wednesday morning, August 24th, at 4271 Buzzard Roost Road.

     A 911 call was received from that location at approximately 3:51 AM from a man who was reporting that his girlfriend had been assaulted by a man living next door.  The complainant stated that as he was approaching his girlfriend’s residence he heard her screaming inside.  When he went inside, he saw IAN TICE on top of her, and the complainant and TICE then began fighting. TICE allegedly had a pistol in his hand.  After the struggle, TICE returned to his own residence.  Deputies later made contact with him there.

     TICE was observed by deputies to have injuries to his face and neck when they spoke with him.  He denied the accusations made by the complainant and by the female victim.  When deputies were speaking with TICE, they observed drug paraphernalia (smoking pipes) in his residence.  They also found a pistol and holster there.

     Sheriff’s Investigators conducted a follow-up inquiry. IAN MICHAEL TICE was ultimately arrested and booked into the Detention Center on charges of:

Residential Burglary – Felony
Aggravated Assault – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Felony
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Misdemeanor

     TICE was given a bond of $75,000 on these charges by the Circuit Judge who issued the arrest warrant, but he is also being held without bond for a probation revocation charge. TICE will appear in the Circuit Court later today to answer these charges.
