A Henry man was arrested for aggravated assault and other charges on Saturday morning after pulling out a handgun during a domestic dispute.

David Matthew Quinn, 30, of 336 Mockingbird Ave. was arrested for aggravated domestic assault, two counts of aggravated reckless endangerment and domestic assault by Henry County Sheriff’s Deputy Phillip Barton.

According to the report by Barton, Quinn was not present when Barton arrived at the Mockingbird Avenue home on a domestic assault call early Saturday morning.

He was told Quinn pulled out a semi-automatic handgun while in an argument with a woman.

Quinn displayed the handgun and started pointing it at his own temple and chin while trying to force the victim’s cellphone out of her hands.

The alleged victim told Barton she was concerned that the gun could go off and hurt one of her children that were in the next room.

Barton contacted officers in Henry County and surrounding counties to give them a description of Quinn and his vehicle, and an officer from the McKenzie Police Department pulled over and detained Quinn at 1:45 a.m. that morning at the intersection of Highway 79 southwest of Paris and Highway 22.

Barton said he arrived at 1:59 a.m. and placed Quinn under arrest for domestic assault, aggravated assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Quinn is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Henry County General Sessions Court and is being held on a $50,000 bond.

In other incidents:

• A Paris man was arrested for aggravated assault Thursday night at a public campground for attacking a woman in a cabin at Paris Landing.

Gregory G. Godbott, 63, of 204 Routon St. was also charged with domestic assault and vandalism by Sheriff’s Sgt. Blake Jenkins.

According to the report by Jenkins, he went with Cpl. Stacey Bostwick and Deputy William Whitaker as they responded to a 911 call at a campground in the Paris Landing area.

When they arrived, they spoke to the alleged female victim, who Jenkins said was covered in blood. She told Jenkins that Godbott had attacked her and locked himself in his cabin.

The victim told Jenkins that Godbott attacked her by biting her on the face, head and arms and pushing his fingers into her eyes.

Godbott also destroyed a back window of the cabin he was staying in.

Jenkins, Bostwick and Whitaker surrounded the cabin Godbott had locked himself in and convinced him to come out.

Jenkins said Godbott listened to commands and came out of the cabin without incident.

The victim was transported by ambulance to the hospital and Godbott was arrested.

Godbott is due Tuesday in General Sessions Court.

The bike is a white 1997 Honda XR 200 dirt bike. It has a red seat and a gray spot on the side that was left there by some repair work. The bike is valued at $900.
