19-year-old Michael Cooper was charged with three counts of aggravated assault after he told the police “y’all got big guns, I got big guns too, I’m going to get my Glock, someone’s going to die tonight” and threatened them with a handgun while his child’s mother was trying to leave the house.
On November 19th, Memphis Police Officers Williams, Hobbs, and Levi arrived at the residence of 3046 Sinclair Street in response to a domestic disturbance call. According to the affidavit, Zakia Hobson was getting her belongings to leave when her child’s father, Michael Cooper, became irritated and upset.
The officers said he began threatening them, saying “y’all got big guns, I got big guns too, I’m going to get my Glock, someone’s going to die tonight.” It was reported that he disappeared to the back of the house and when he returned to the front, he started making hand movements, and the noise of a gun being loaded was heard. Per the report, the officers took cover in fear of being shot and Cooper retreated to the rear of the house.
When he came back outside, the officers arrested him and a search of the residence revealed a 9mm handgun with three rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. Cooper later admitted to threatening the police and to getting and loading a handgun.
Michael Cooper was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault. He is currently jailed in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
