Local man arrested after incident with loaded gun

A Columbus man was arrested after an incident with a loaded gun early Monday morning. Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, says that deputies were called to a home in the 3500 block of North County Road 250 West at approximately 1:41 a.m. on a report of a domestic violence with a deadly weapon.

Authorities say the caller, who had left the home, told police that 37-year-old Brian Titara was pointing a shotgun at people inside the house. Investigators say that Titara had become irate before breaking several items, removing a shotgun from his gun cabinet, and pointing it at those inside his home.

Titara was arrested on preliminary charges of Domestic Violence in the Presence of a Minor, Pointing a Loaded Firearm and Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon. He is being held on $30,000 bond.
