A 37-year-old man was arrested and charged Thursday night with several felony charges, after a woman notified local law enforcement he had held a gun to her head at point-blank range.
Wade Keitt, who has a record which includes several felony convictions, is now incarcerated at the Bradley County Justice Center facing new charges of aggravated assault, unlawful carrying of a weapon, firearm possession during a dangerous felony, reckless endangerment, theft of property and possession of stolen property.
According to Cleveland Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Evie West, the woman made her call to 911 shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, when she reported the incident had occurred in front of her apartment located in the 3000 block of Adkission Drive N.W.
CPD officers and Bradley County Sheriff’s Office deputies went to the scene and found one spent 9 mm shell casing and an SCCY 9 mm gun in the parking lot.
Keitt had entered the building and, after CPD officers were able to establish communications with him, he came to the door and was taken into custody. He was transported to Tennova-Cleveland for a medical evaluation, after which he was taken to the Justice Center and booked.
The gun, which was identified by the woman, was found to have been stolen in the city on Dec. 21.
The woman’s name and relationship with Keitt had not been made public as of press time.
