PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies arrested Wesley Mark Henion, 52, on Monday, after he allegedly threatened to shoot a deputy while he was being arrested for a domestic dispute.
Henion faces two counts of corruption by threat against a public servant, two counts of resisting/obstructing an officer, misuse of 911 and domestic assault.
The deputy, who was responding to the domestic disturbance, heard loud music and fighting coming from inside the residence. According to his arrest report, Henion appeared to be intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. He was instructed to stay back while the deputy spoke with the victim, but he soon heard Henion make a call to an unknown person and say, "Get over here now. We need to take care of business." The deputy took that as a threat to the victim and placed Henion under arrest for assault and obstruction.
Henion allegedly resisted handcuffing, was searched and placed in the patrol car. While the deputy was speaking with the victim, he was advised that Henion was calling 911 from the back of the patrol car, saying he was being arrested for no reason. The deputy then took possession of the cell phone and Henion reportedly responded, "You're going to get shot. I know where you live."
On the way to the Charlotte County Jail, Henion said, "You don't know who I am, but you are about to find out." The deputy asked if he was being threatened, again according to the arrest report, to which Henion replied, "You better watch out. Your time is coming."
Henion is being held without bond.
