AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man was booked into jail Wednesday in connection to a January road rage incident on the Interstate 35 frontage road, the Austin Police Department said in a release.
On Jan. 30, a caller told APD a man pulled a gun out and pointed it at two people, including a child, in another vehicle in the 5700 block of the South I-35 frontage road, which is in central Austin near Koenig Lane, APD said.
Detectives identified the man as 23-year-old Austin Martin, the release stated.
Martin was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, APD said.
KXAN has reached out to an attorney representing Martin, who said the case is still in its early stages and she doesn’t typically comment on active cases.
Deeper into the investigation, detectives conducted a warranted search of Martin’s home and found 19 guns on March 29, according to APD.
Martin remained in custody at Travis County jail Friday, and according to jail records, his bond was set at $25,000. Court documents said, as a condition of the bond, he was also not allowed to have firearms.
