An Oak Ridge man accused of waving a pistol at bystanders on Utica Circle on Monday night has been charged with seven counts of aggravated assault, authorities said.
The Oak Ridge Police Department responded to the Utica Circle Apartments at about 11:23 p.m. Monday, April 6, in response to a complaint of a man threatening others with a firearm, a press release said.
“Upon arrival, officers found Deshon Meadow on the premises waving a pistol at bystanders,” the City of Oak Ridge release said.
Meadow, 20, was ordered by officers to lay the weapon on the ground. Once he surrendered the weapon, he was taken into custody, the release said.
Meadow was arrested and transported to the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton, where he was charged with the seven counts of aggravated assault, the release said.
Meadow remained jailed there on Tuesday afternoon.
