The District Attorney’s office declined to file charges Monday against a 38-year-old Canyon Country man who was arrested last week after an eight-hour manhunt.

The D.A.’s office cited insufficient evidence to proceed with a case against Scott Barrowclough for alleged threats against his girlfriend, a spokeswoman said.

Barrowclough had been arrested Thursday morning for investigation of making criminal threats.

Investigators confiscated a knife during Barrowclough’s arrest, saying they believed it was used to threaten the woman.

Not only did the District Attorney’s office say there was insufficient evidence to file charges, but it also made no request for further investigation, spokeswoman Jane Robison said Monday.

Deputies began searching for Barrowclough early Thursday after his girlfriend told investigators he had threatened her with a knife and was known to carry a firearm.

The search extended up Mint Canyon past Baker Canyon and shut down Sierra Highway for a time until Barrowclough was located by helicopter around 8 a.m. Thursday and arrested without incident.

No firearm was found in his possession, investigators said.
