Client was arrested for an Aggravated Assault with a Firearm, where he was accused of pulling a gun on his old boss. Officers responded to a pizza restaurant where upon arrival, contact was made with the manager. Officers were advised that management had engaged in a verbal dispute with a terminated employee, who was there to retrieve a paycheck. The terminated employee stated, “What you gonna do now” then lifted his shirt and displayed a firearm, that was located in his waistband. The manager grabbed our client by the neck and threw him to the ground. A threat was then made by our client that he was going to kill him, where he then left the building. Our client was later arrested at his home.
RESULT: The manager admitted to jumping our client and strangling him as soon as he saw the gun. We convinced the State that they did not have the elements in place to prove Aggravated Assault with a Firearm. Client Receives NO Prison, No Conviction and No Probation.
