A Liberty County man was arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly pulling a gun on a woman during a domestic incident.
Antwan Fielder, 27, of Bristol, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Gentry responded to a home on Third Street around 6 a.m. He was met by Fielder who reportedly ran up to his patrol car and yelled, “Just take me to jail!”
Dep. Gentry attempted to calm Fielder and noted he smelled of an alcoholic beverage. Fielder said he and his girlfriend broke up a week prior and he returned home to sleep. When he arrived and found he had nowhere to sleep, he became upset.
Dep. Gentry also spoke with a woman in the home who said Fielder was arguing with his ex-girlfriend, then pulled out a .22 handgun. The woman said Fielder blamed her for his relationship problems. Dep. Gentry retrieved the weapon and found it cocked with live ammunition in the chamber.
Fielder’s ex-girlfriend reported she was awakened by him, an argument ensued and she told him to leave her alone and calm down. She said he became very upset, held her in the bedroom and the argument turned physical with him “throwing her around.” She reported she screamed to the other woman in the house for help and Fielder pulled the gun from a drawer, pointed it at the door and cocked it. When the woman opened the bedroom door, Fielder was allegedly pointing the gun at her. Fielder then became upset with the woman and began waving the gun around. The ex-girlfriend managed to calm him down and have him put the gun away while the other woman called 911.
Fielder remained in custody at the Liberty County Jail at press time.
