PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - A Port Charlotte man was arrested Monday for threatening to shoot a deputy who was investigating a domestic dispute.

52-year-old Wesley Mark Henion faces two counts of corruption by threat against a public servant, two counts of resisting/obstructing an officer, misuse of 911 and domestic assault.

The deputy went to a home in the 13300 block of Eisenhower Drive in response to a domestic disturbance call.  The deputy could hear loud music and fighting going on inside the home when they arrive.

The fight stemmed from a dispute over a cable box between Henion and another man living in the home.  While talking to the victim the deputy overheard Henion making a phone call to an unknown person saying, "Get over here now.  We need to take care of business."

The deputy took that as a threat.  Henion was placed into custody and after the deputy took his cell phone Henion said, "You're going to get shot.  I know where you live."

Henion continued to make threats as he was transported to the Charlotte County Jail where he is being held with no bond.
