A Henderson man was charged with wanton endangerment after he allegedly put a gun to a female’s head during an argument.

According to Henderson Police, officers responded to West Grant Street for a domestic dispute call around 1:45 Sunday afternoon. Upon arrival, police report a female stated that 35 year old James Robinson had put a .45 caliber pistol to her head during an argument, and had also hit her while she was driving and threatened her verbally. When the female left for a neighbor’s home, Robinson reportedly drove off in her vehicle and then returned when officers arrived. Police say the Henderson man failed field sobriety tests, and denied to officers that he had a gun. The report says neighbors told police they had seen him drive the victim’s vehicle and said that he always carries a .45 pistol on him. Officers searched the home and found a pistol holster with an extra magazine loaded with .45 caliber ammunition.

Robinson was taken into custody and lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for first degree wanton endangerment, first degree DUI – aggravating circumstances, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and tampering with physical evidence.

Henderson Police continuing to investigate the case.
