Report: Man threatens deputies with pit bull

A Salisbury man threatened to turn his pit bull on deputies responding to a domestic disturbance Tuesday night, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported today.
Rebecca Huneycutt called 911 on Tuesday to report that Brandon Lee McCrary, 23, would not let her leave his 1045 Starhaven Drive home, a Sheriff’s Office report said.
When deputies got to the home, McCrary stormed out and told them Huneycutt “wasn’t going anywhere,” yelling and cursing at the woman and the deputies, the report said.
Brandon McCrary’s brother, Joshua, was also there and told the deputies he could not get his brother to leave the home and leave him and Huneycutt alone.
Deputies asked Huneycutt if she wanted to leave, and she told them she did. McCrary jumped off the porch and again told her she wasn’t going anywhere, the report said.
Deputies asked McCrary to go inside three separate times, and he refused, so they showed him a stun gun. McCrary then grabbed his dog, a pit bull, and acted like he was going to release the dog on the deputies, the report said.
A deputy was able to grab McCrary and knock him to the ground, but McCrary still resisted, the report said. Deputies eventually got McCrary into a patrol car he stopped resisting.
Huneycutt told the deputies she was in the bathroom of the home when she called 911.
McCrary is charged with false imprisonment, resisting arrest, intoxicated and disruptive, possession of drug paraphernalia (a pipe with marijuana residue) and assault on a female.
He posted a $5,000 secured bond.
