Medina told reporters that Bradford asked her who was in her driveway. When Medina said she didn’t know, she alleges that Bradford replied: “Fine, since you can’t tell me, I’m going to go get my shotgun.”
A parent then called police, who were able to de-escalate the situation.
A different neighbour alleges that this is the second Halloween in a row that there’s been an “incident” with “this particular neighbour”.
Bradford was taken into custody and brought to Hays County Jail. She was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and her bond was set at $10,000.
In a statement, Hays County Sheriff’s Office said: “Hays County Sheriff’s Office detectives are still conducting interviews therefore, no further information is currently available. If you have any information regarding this investigation, contact JB Baker 512-393-7814.”
Earlier this year a bill passed in Texas that allows anyone over the age of 21 to carry a handgun without a permit, so long as they do not have past criminal convictions or any other legal prohibitions.
Previously, people would be required to have a licence, training, and background checks before being permitted to carry a handgun.
