AUSTIN (KXAN) - A man was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after pointing a semi-automatic handgun at a cab driver in West Austin on Sunday.
The cab driver alerted police he had given a pair of highly intoxicated men a ride to 1407 N. Weston Lane, the arrest affidavit said. According to the driver, the men refused to pay for the taxi service and went into the house.
A short while later, the driver told police that Jerry Morgan, 49, came back outside and pointed a handgun equipped with a laser at him.
While pointing the gun at the driver, Morgan stated, "I have a license to shoot it," the document said.
When an officer arrived, the taxi driver alerted police that Morgan had a gun. Morgan was detained and a pat-down revealed the weapon.
Bail was set at $50,000.
