Garden City man charged with threatening family members with firearm

A 39-year-old Garden City man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he threatened family members with a firearm Sunday and resisted arrest.

Robert Pierce was arrested on a $200,000 warrant for aggravated assault and booked into the Ada County Jail Tuesday evening.

Family members told police Sunday that Pierce was acting erratic and threatening relatives with a gun at a home on South Horseshoe Bend Road. Family members told officers that Pierce had threatened to shoot any law enforcement officers who came to his residence.

On Tuesday, Garden City and Ada County officers went to Pierce's home and took him into custody without injury, police said.

He faces three felony counts of aggravated assault and one misdemeanor charge of resisting or obstructing officers.
