HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A Hutchinson man was arrested after he allegedly threatened two people with a gun while their children were present.
Police say 59-year-old Tommie Jones was taken into custody just before 5 p.m. Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated child endangerment, felony interference with law enforcement and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
