PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man is jailed because sheriff’s deputies say he pointed a loaded gun at them when they arrived at his home with an arrest warrant from family court.

The nature of the warrant wasn’t immediately clear, but 44-year-old Joel Craft has now been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.

Allegheny County deputies say Craft had the weapon cocked and loaded with 14 hollow-point bullets when they arrived at his home Saturday morning.

The deputies drew their weapons and say Craft eventually dropped his and surrendered.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Craft, who faces a preliminary hearing April 12.

He remained jailed Monday, unable to post bond.
