BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Deputies responded to a call from a man threatening to harm himself and others. Deputies arrived at the home of Jimmy Lee Frink, 55, just after 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.

The Brunswick County SWAT unit and Helicopter were also dispatched to assist if needed in this situation.

Deputies decided to enter his home using the SWAT unit. Mr. Frink was arrested unharmed, and was taken to the Brunswick County Detention Center where he had a previous charge of Failure to Appear for assault on a government official. He is also being charged with resisting an officer.
