A Bremen man is in the Marshall County Jail for preliminary charges of intimidation, strangulation, domestic battery, and pointing a firearm. 

On Saturday, June 8, at approximately 7:30 pm, the Marshall County Central Dispatch Center received a call of an intoxicated male who was threatening his wife with a firearm.

Officers from the Bremen Police Department were the first to arrive on the scene first and were able to de-escalate the scene. While investigating the incident, it was determined that the male, Chad Barnaby, 52, of Juniper Road in Bremen had pointed a firearm at a member of his family. Officers were informed that he had placed his hands around the neck of one of the individuals.

Chad Barnaby was transported to the Plymouth Hospital by Marshall County Police.  He received jail clearance and was then transported to the Marshall County Jail.  Barnaby is being held on a $1,500 cash bond. 

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
