The sheriff got involved just before 4 p.m. when the victim called 911 to report that a family member had seen what appeared to be Jarrett's vehicle parked down the road from the woman's house.

"The victim drove to the location from work to see if it belonged to Jarrett," the sheriff's office said in a statement. "As deputies responded, the victim called back that Jarrett was in her trailer, had pointed a gun at her brother and the two men were now wrestling over the gun. The victim's brother was able to temporarily detain Jarrett until deputies arrived."

Deputies arrested Jarrett, then took him to Lebanon Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, the sheriff's office said.
