An Idaho man was booked into the Cache County Jail on Thursday night after allegedly holding a gun to a woman’s head.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, David Frank Kelley, 37, was arrested after police received a report of a domestic dispute involving a firearm at about 5:30 p.m.

A juvenile in the home called 911 for help while Kelley allegedly held the woman at gunpoint.

Sheriff David Fryar said law enforcement officers rushed to a Weston residence, where the female and the juvenile had barricaded themselves in a bedroom.

“They approached the front door of the residence and called out for the suspect to come to them. The suspect then revealed himself and dropped a handgun and shotgun when directed,” Fryar stated in a press release on Friday.

Police later learned that both of the firearms were loaded.

Although Kelley reportedly dropped his gun right away, police say he was not cooperative with law enforcement and went for one of their guns while resisting arrest.

A stun gun was used on Kelley as a result, and he was safely taken into custody, Fryar said.

No shots were fired in the incident, but one of the officers received a minor injury to his head.

Kelley was booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and assault on a police officer. He will be held without bond while formal charges are pending. Twitter: amacavinta
