Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office arrested a 37-year-old man Tuesday after he allegedly got into an argument with his ex-wife and her boyfriend and pointed a pistol at them.
Timothy Allen Crowder, of Nacogdoches, is still being in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, a Class A misdemeanor charge deadly conduct charge, a Class A misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance less than 28 grams charge, a Class B misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge, and a Class B possession of marijuana charge.
Collectively, Crowder's bail was set at $18,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, the incident occurred at a residence in the 6900 block of Highway 204 at approximately 9:20 p.m. NCSO deputies were dispatched out in reference to a weapons offense.
The affidavit stated that based on witness statements and physical evidence, Crowder pointed a 9 mm Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol at his ex-wife's boyfriend and threatened to kill him. At that point, Crowder's ex-wife stepped between him and her boyfriend.
As Crowder drove away from the home, he allegedly continued to point the gun at the couple. An NCSO deputy located Crowder's vehicle a short time later and recovered a black pistol from under the back seat, according to the affidavit.
While the deputy was talking to Crowder, he noticed a strong odor of alcohol on Crowder's person. Crowder did poorly on field sobriety tests and was taken to a Nacogdoches hospital, so a blood sample could be obtained.
An inventory of Crowder's vehicle allegedly revealed misdemeanor amounts of Amax and marijuana, the affidavit stated. The affidavit stated that the DWI charge stemmed from the fact that Crowder was intoxicated as a result of a combination of alcohol, marijuana, and one Amax pill.
