A Rockford man remains in jail Friday night after he was accused of using a handgun to threaten a woman's boyfriend at her West Market Street residence just before 5 a.m.
Zachary Haney, 35, was intoxicated, agitated, uncooperative and resisted arrest when Rockford Police Chief and Mercer County deputies arrived on a call about a threat.
A .25-caliber handgun and drugs were found in the area of the arrest, authorities said.
Upon checking, authorities learned of an active warrant for Haney out of Mercer County on a probation violation charge.
Haney remains jailed on that charge.
