Police responding to a domestic dispute at a Lufkin home Thursday found more than an angry couple when they got to the residence.

Seventy-five year-old Laverne Gray reportedly pointed a pistol at a woman at his home. When police got there, Gray came out of the house still holding the weapon. They arrested him on an outstanding warrant for delivery of a controlled substance. They also found 30 rocks of cocaine on him.

Gray is charged with felon in possession of a firearm because he has a prior felony drug conviction. Police found a .25 caliber pistol and 12-guage shotgun inside Gray's home. They're still investigating whether he pulled a gun on the woman.
