A Chattanooga man was arrested after police say he showed up at another man's home and put a gun in his face, threatening to kill him.

Police were dispatched to the Highway 58 home shortly after the incident.

 The resident of the home, William Ward, told police that 29-year-old Christopher Eric Millsaps had fled in a black sedan.

 According to a witness, Ward was sitting in his car when Millsaps drove up, nearly hitting him. She said the men got out of their cars and an altercation started after Millsaps began yelling at Ward.

 Ward said the defendant walked up to him and also hit him in the head with a pistol.

 He said Millsaps stated repeatedly, "I will kill you."

 The witness said she heard Ward tell Millsaps to "fight like a man." At this point, she said Millsaps fired a shot into the air before running back to the cars. After grabbing several items from Ward's car, she said Millsaps drove away.

Before police eventually stopped the car, another witness said he saw someone in the vehicle throw an object out of the window. Police later discovered this to be the gun.

Millsaps, of 3200 Highway 58, Georgetown, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony.

Bond was set at $10,000.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
