A $50,000 bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man accused of threatening to kill two police officers and their families.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Damar Scott, 30, with two counts of terroristic threatening, theft by receiving and being a felon in possession of a firearm because of multiple prior felony convictions.

During the court hearing, Deputy Prosecutor Beth Carson said officers were sent to an address on 10th Avenue Friday in response to a reported domestic disturbance and saw Scott attempting to ride away on a bicycle. They ordered him to stop and he refused.

Carson said Scott was placed on probation in 2018 for being a felon in possession of a firearm and that probation was revoked in 2019 and he was sentenced to 60 months in prison. Scott was told to come back to court Feb. 4, 2022.
