MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A man is behind bars for allegedly threatening two other men with a semi automatic weapon and stun gun.

Deputies say it happened on Meacham Lane in McCracken county last night when Joshua Stroup started a fight with two men.

The men had apparently been in a previous fight with a friend of Stroup's.

Deputies say Stroup started an argument with the men over that fight and then pulled the semi-automatic weapon and stun gun out of his trunk and started threatening to kill the men.

He eventually drove away without hurting anyone.

Deputies later found Stroup, along with the weapons, in a Paducah home.
