Belton man accused of assault and threatening officers

Posted:
BELTON - Police have arrested a 37-year-old man accused of assaulting a family member, then making threats to officers as they tried to arrest him.

Paul Arturo Vargas faces a charge of aggravated assault to a family member with a deadly weapon and terroristic threat against a public servant. His bond has been set at $77,500 total for the two charges.

Police say the aggravated assault charge comes after an investigation by Belton PD into an incident on May 5, in the 1000 block of Carla Kay Dr. Further details of this incident were not released.

As Vargas was being arrested for the assault charge, police say he made threats to Belton PD officers, which caused the added charge of threat against a public servant. Vargas is being held in the Bell County Jail.
