A 25-year-old man arrested back on July 29, was back in court Wednesday on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to distribute, two counts of criminal threat, and personal use drug paraphernalia.
Korey Byard of 216 North Park Drive was arrested after an altercation at a home in the 4000 Block of East G.
Sheriff officials say they were dispatched to that location on the report of someone threatening people with a 9 mm handgun. Deputies were able to stop the vehicle that Byard was in and he was placed under arrest. He allegedly admitted having a handgun in the vehicle, but claims he pointed at the two men in self defense, and that it wasn’t loaded.
Sheriff deputies say they found a gray and orange backpack and inside was a jar containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, in a distribution amount. They also allegedly found numerous Ziploc coin baggies, a digital scale, several pipes typically used for smoking pot, a grinder and papers used for personal use of pot.
With the formal charges filed, the case will now be placed on future waiver-status docket.
