Lincoln man accused of threatening woman with a loaded gun early Friday


Police arrested a 32-year-old Lincoln man early Friday after he allegedly assaulted a woman and threatened her with a loaded gun.

Officer Erin Spilker said police were sent to a home in the 3200 block of U Street at about 2 a.m. on a disturbance and were told there was a man with a gun there.

He was gone when police arrived, but a 29-year-old woman told officers James T. Williams had pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her and her family. He left with the gun.

Spilker said police searched the area and found a loaded gun, like the one the woman described, in a trash can a block away on Vine Street.

Officers returned to the home, heard yelling inside and found Williams had returned. They arrested him on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and third-degree domestic assault.
