Albert D. Birge, 44, of Springdale was arrested Saturday evening (Jan. 7) on felony parole violation and on suspicion of felony residential burglary, theft of property, possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor second-degree terroristic threatening and criminal mischief and carrying certain prohibited weapon, and was cited for driving on a suspended or revoked license, careless driving and no proof of insurance.

She also told police she is afraid Birge will kill her.
