LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

An Angelina County jury found a 24-year-old Lufkin man not guilty of aggravated assault in connection to a confrontation that occurred at Cici's in September 2010.

"The defense was there was no knife used," John Tunnel, Nallie's defense attorney, said. "We're gratified by the jury's verdict."

According to the initial police report, a man and his wife were having dinner at Cici's on Sept. 17, 2010, when Nallie walked by the man, who he did not know, and allegedly said, "What are you looking at, [racial slur]?"

After Nallie and the man exchanged words, another man allegedly pulled out a switchblade and handed it to Nallie, according to the police report. The man's wife contacted the restaurant's management, and Nallie and the other man were escorted out of Cici's.

The report stated that the men waited outside the restaurant with baseball bats but left before police arrived.

After police obtained a warrant for Nallie's arrest on Sept. 27, 2010, he was arrested at the Love's truck Stop in Lufkin after an officer spotted him there on Oct. 8, 2010.

He was booked into the Angelina County jail on a charge of aggravated assault. Nallie posted a $10,000 bail and was released the same day.
