Second man arrested for brandishing sword at relatives

July 23rd, 2013 in News

Another Callaway County resident has been arrested for threatening family members while brandishing a sword.

At 9:02 a.m. Sunday, Fulton police were called to 211 S. Ravine St. to answer a domestic disturbance call involving a weapon.

When police officers arrived they encountered Adam D. Lairmore, 30, Fulton, holding a sword.

An investigation revealed Lairmore had threatened two family members while brandishing a sword.

Police reported Lairmore also had damaged several windows and a door with the weapon.

Lairmore was charged with two counts of felony first-degree domestic assault and felony property damage. He is being held in Callaway County Jail on $30,000 bond.

In an unrelated incident on May 16, another Callaway County resident - David Lee Salmons, 51, of 7614 County Road 407 - was arrested after relatives complained he came to a residence with a sword, poked several holes into the side of the residence and then forced his way into the home.

Deputies reported Salmons brandished the sword while inside the residence but was held at bay after one of the relatives armed himself with a shotgun.

Salmons faces three felony charges involving burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, and armed criminal action. He also has two misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and second-degree property damage.

Salmons has been out of jail since May 20 after posting a $52,500 surety bond.

Salmons' preliminary hearing on the various charges has been set for Aug. 13 in Callaway County Associate Circuit Court.
