PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a man April 17 after he allegedly threatened his wife with an assortment of firearms.

Early that morning, the Kitsap County SWAT team assisted sheriff’s office detectives in arresting the 42-year-old male suspect for second-degree domestic-violence assault. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the man’s residence in the 3700 block of Southeast Conifer Park Drive in Port Orchard.

Over the course of several months, the man’s wife had been threatened multiple times with the firearms. During a recent incident, the man fired a shotgun into the ceiling of the master bedroom. Detectives found evidence that a firearm had been discharged inside the residence.

Roads in the area of Lund, Conifer Park and Castlewood were briefly closed during the arrest.

The suspect was subsequently booked into Kitsap County Jail on a $100,000 arrest warrant.
