TALLAHASSEE, Fla (WTXL) - A Tallahassee man has been arrested, accused of pointing a gun in a victim's face before threatening to kill police officers.   

Eddie Campbell, 20, was arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm and threatening to kill a law enforcement officer.

Officers were called on Saturday to a residence on Pepper Drive about a disturbance. Once on scene, officers talked to the owner of the residence, who said he and Campbell have a history.  

The homeowner stated that Campbell was walking in front of his home that evening, making vulgar comments to him. The owner said he then heard screaming and heard some someone say "he has a gun."

That's when he called the police.   

When police talked to the victim of the aggravated assault, she told them that Campbell approached her as she walked out of the homeowner's residence.

She said she tried to turn around to call the police when she saw him, but Campbell took out a gun and pointed it in her face. 

While he was pointing the gun at her, the victim said that Campbell threatened to go to her dad's home and kill her family. He also threatened to shoot her in the face.

Police write the victim stated that she was scared that Campbell would shoot her because, "he is known to shoot at people."    

When police talked to Campbell, he denied threatening anyone with a gun but said the gun in question was a BB gun and didn't belong to him.

Based on the evidence, Campbell was arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm. As officers began to transport Campbell to Leon County Detention Facility he became irate and aggressive in the back of the patrol car.  

The police report states that Campbell began to slam his head into the back cage of the patrol car and made threats to the arresting officers saying, "I'm going to snap your neck," and if EMS showed up he was going to "kill them."  

Based on those threats, Campbell was then charged with making death threats of serious bodily harm to a law enforcement officer. 

Campbell was transported to the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital to treat his injuries before officers took him to jail.
