BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Anthony Lamar Gibbons, 35, was arrested last night and charged with aggravated domestic assault, simple domestic battery, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after allegedly pulling a gun from his waistband during a dispute with the mother of one of his children.

A Gainesville Police Department officer responded to a call from others at the scene and called all parties out of the residence. The victim reported that Gibbons pushed her to the ground during an argument and then took a gun from his waistband and held it by his side. The victim said she was in fear for her life when she saw the gun. The victim’s three children were present, and they reportedly ran outside and called 911 after seeing the gun. The victim described the gun as a small silver pistol.

The officers reportedly detained all adults at the scene, obtained consent to search the residence for the gun, and found a silver pistol in a compartment built on the kitchen refrigerator.

Gibbons has been charged with aggravated domestic assault, simple domestic battery, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He has 11 felony convictions and was most recently released from state prison in 2015. He has an active warrant out of Wisconsin. He is being held on $25,000 bail.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
