DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE LEADS TO ARREST ON FELONY CHARGES
Charles Glenn Millington
After responding to a domestic disturbance call at the Robinson Point Campground on June 23rd, deputies arrested 41 year old CHARLES GLENN MILLINGTON of Sage, Arkansas on several criminal charges.
At approximately 3:10 PM Tuesday, the Sheriff's Office was notified of a man with a gun causing a disturbance at the campground. When deputies arrived, they made contact with the man's wife. According to her statements, CHARLES MILLINGTON had been drinking heavily and was becoming loud and belligerent. She decided to leave the campsite with their two children. MILLINGTON replied that he was not going to let her ruin the camping trip and said that if she tried to leave he would kill her. MILLINGTON then retrieved a Taurus .38 caliber revolver and pointed it at her. The woman fled to a neighboring campsite with the children and called law enforcement.
Deputies found CHARLES MILLINGTON coming out of a tent when they arrived on scene. MILLINGTON appeared to be intoxicated and began to become belligerent. MILLINGTON was arrested and placed in restraints.
One of the children corroborated the allegations made by MILLINGTON'S wife concerning the threats and the pointing of the gun at her.
A search of CHARLES MILLINGTON'S criminal history revealed prior convictions for various felony crimes, including Aggravated Assault, Stalking, Burglary, and Drug Offenses, some of these from the State of Tennessee. He is thus prohibited from possessing a firearm.
CHARLES MILLINGTON was transported to the Baxter County Detention Center where he was booked on charges of:
Aggravated Assault on a Family or Household Member - Felony
Terroristic Threatening - Felony
Possession of Firearm by Certain Persons Involving Commission of a Crime - Felony
Endangering the Welfare of a Minor in the Second Degree (2 counts) - Misdemeanors
Public Intoxication - Misdemeanor
Disorderly Conduct - Misdemeanor
He is being held in lieu of $35,000 bond on these charges, and he is scheduled to appear before the Circuit Court to answer on July 16th.
U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Rangers also responded to the park and assisted with the investigation.
