DALEVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

A Daleville man is under arrest and charged with attempted murder of a police officer after he allegedly pointed an AK-47 at the officer. The man is identified as Samuel D. Hone III.

Daleville Police Chief Harvey Mathis says his officers responded to a call Tuesday around 10:30 a.m. in which a woman said her husband left their home with a gun and four magazines. The woman told authorities that Hone was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and was not on his medication.

Less than 20 minutes after the call, an officer located and stopped Hone on North Daleville Avenue. The officer reported that Hone stopped his vehicle, got out, and pointed the gun at him. It was at that point, according to Chief Mathis, that the officer fired shots at the man.

Hone then got back into his vehicle, put the gun down and placed his hands out of the car window in an effort to surrender.

Following his arrest, Hone was taken to the Dale County Jail.
