Florence man arrested in domestic dispute

A Florence man was arrested Sunday night after allegedly making threats to harm a family member in the 400 block of W. 6th St. in Florence.

Marion ambulance and Florence first responders were alerted to stand by during a police standoff with a possibly armed man, but the standby request was canceled less than two minutes later because the suspect was in custody.

Sheriff Rob Craft said Jason Hinton, 39, Florence, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault, criminal threat, and criminal damage to property.

Craft said the incident was a domestic dispute.
