After reportedly shoving down and pointing a loaded gun at his mother, Odessa police charged a 20-year-old Odessa man with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, an Odessa Police Department press release said.
OPD first responded to the incident on Oct. 13 in the 200 block of Lotteman Drive, the release detailed, where the 46-year-old victim told officers she has been assaulted by her son, Timothy Bailey Jones.
The release stated Jones had become upset with his mother, taking a gun out of her purse and shoving her down to the floor. After chambering a round, Jones pointed the gun at his mother and told her to stay away from him, which a witness later confirmed seeing to police.
A warrant was issued for Jones, and he was eventually charged accordingly on Dec. 29, the release said.
Jail records show Jones was taken to the Ector County Detention Center Saturday on a $50,000 bond.
