Tyson Welt, 33, was taken to the Benton County Jail and lodged with a bail amount of $87,500. He faces charges of menacing and unlawful use of a weapon.

Police said they responded at about 8:35 a.m. after receiving reports of a disturbance on 190 SE Viewmont Ave. A caller said Welt had accused the neighbor of theft.
