MILL VALLEY— A self-employed web developer and computer programmer has been arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot a family member. He was taken into custody after causing a scene outside the family’s residence.
The suspect is 47-year-old Johnson K. Gibbs, who lives in Strawberry, an unincorporated community, adjacent to Mill Valley.
Gibbs has a history of violence and a family member phoned for help on Bayview Terrace. This incident happened during the morning of November 22.
Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded. Upon arrival, Gibbs was located outside the family residence. He was extremely uncooperative.
Gibbs immediately fled from deputies. He started running through neighbors’ yards and jumping over fences. He found a ladder in one neighbor’s yard and then climbed onto the roof.
Deputies were unsure if Gibbs was armed, while trying to convince him to come down from the rooftop. Patience prevailed. After about 15 minutes, Gibbs climbed down from the roof.
Deputies neither saw nor located any weapon, but they did arrest Gibbs. He was booked into Marin County Jail at 10:25 a.m. Gibbs is being held in custody on open charges in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Presently, Gibbs is charged with making criminal threats with intent to terrorize. In addition, he is charged with obstructing or resisting an officer.
Two court dates are pending for Gibbs, a bail review hearing on November 30, and a preliminary hearing on December 8.
