Livingston Police officers arrested a 51-year man for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly brandished a metal pipe at his 16-year-old niece and threw it at her during an argument over a dog Sunday evening.

James Lee Chambliss, of Livingston, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $25,000.

According to Lt. Matt Parrish of the Livingston Police Department, the incident occurred in the 1000 block of West Noblitt Street around 3:44 p.m. Sunday. Parrish said Chambliss and his niece allegedly got into a heated argument over the girl's refusal to take care of a dog.

Parrish said Chambliss swung the metal pipe around and flung it at her. He said that this was an instance of assault by threat because the 16-year-old girl feared for her life, and officers sought an arrest warrant for Chambliss after they interviewed his niece and several eyewitnesses at the scene.
