Cops: Man pointed gun at 3 children

A 31-year-old man was arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at a father and his three children recently.

Anthony L. Volavka is out of jail on bond after appearing in court Monday.

He was arrested Friday at 24821 E. Roxanne Ave., after Michael A. Walkinshaw, 44, said Volavka pointed a gun at him as he went to the home to get his children, two of whom are 10 and 9 years old, according to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.

Volavka was in the garage when Walkinshaw approached. He told deputies he had his pistol ready for Walkinshaw because he was expecting a fight, according to court documents.

Volavka faces charges of first-degree assault and three counts of reckless endangerment.
