A man living in the Moran settlement near Woodward was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Wednesday after allegedly brandishing a BB gun and threatening to beat up a Moran woman.
Donald Edward Caldwell, 67, of 15742 Tanner Lane, Woodward, was charged with third-degree harassment.
The incident occurred May 2 about 3:15 p.m., when Caldwell allegedly “threated to fight and beat up” the victim “after a driving and parking complaint,” according to court records.
Caldwell allegedly “picked up a BB gun” after the victim “drove by his residence,” and he “then walked from his residence to” the victim’s “residence and threated to fight her,” according to court records.
The victim told a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff that she “did not know what Mr. Caldwell’s intentions were with the BB gun and she felt alarmed by Mr. Caldwell’s threats.”
A warrant for Caldwell’s arrest was ordered May 7 in Dallas County District Court and served May 12. He is held in the Dallas County Jail without bond in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
Caldwell was arrested for carrying weapons in 1994 in Pottawattamie County. The charge was later dismissed.
