A 28-year-old Maryville man has been charged with domestic violence for reportedly threatening a family member with an automatic weapon.
Maryville Police officers arrested Trent Lamar Guy at 8:48 p.m. Sunday after a relative told dispatchers he was intoxicated and became belligerent, causing family members to flee the home.
When police responded to Crestview Drive, a relative told them Guy was in the basement with a loaded AK-47 that he had used to threaten a relative.
When Guy emerged from the home, he was holding the weapon in his right hand, a report states.
The gun was fully loaded with a full magazine, police said.
Guy also had possession of another fully loaded magazine but surrendered without incident, police said.
He was released Monday on a $10,000 bond pending a 9 a.m. hearing Thursday in Blount County General Sessions Court.
