Texas judge accused of pointing gun in road rage incident
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A South Texas judge has pleaded not guilty to charges alleging he tried to run another vehicle off the road and pointed a gun at its occupants.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports state District Judge Guy Williams was indicted Friday on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Williams is free on a $25,000 bond.
According to police, a woman called 911 on April 28 and told dispatchers the driver of a Mercedes, later identified as Williams, allegedly attempted to run her car off the road.
In a statement, Williams’ attorneys, Terry Shamsie and Lisa Greenberg, say he is innocent and asked people not to rush to judgment.
Police say Williams was accused of hitting a Jeep in 2013. No charges were filed.
