An ongoing feud between two neighboring Imboden residents escalated today on Kentucky Street. Over the past two weeks Lawrence County Deputies have answered numerous calls on these disagreeing parties but nothing like today.
Around 2:20pm the Lawrence County Dispatch received a call from a resident stating a man was outside in the street threatening to harm him with a knife. Lawrence County Deputies were dispatched to the area. Once on scene deputies had to disarm the suspect in the street who had a knife. The suspect was identified as Carl Poteet 5/2/1962 of Imboden.
After an investigation into the incident, Poteet was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault and felony terroristic threatening. He was taken to the Lawrence County Detention Center. Poteet will be given a bond hearing and court date week.
No injuries were reported in the incident. Lawrence County Deputies were also assisted by the Arkansas State Police.
