Deputies responding to the call found a woman who said she had been in a fight with an acquaintance. She says the man pointed a pistol at her, threw items at her and hit her.
The sheriff’s office says McKaig kicked and pushed two deputies as they tried to separate the couple.
McKaig is charged with pointing and presenting a gun, aggravated assault and battery and two counts of assault and battery on a police officer while resisting arrest.
It was unclear if McKaig had an attorney.
