Hiring a Port St Lucie Aggravated Assault Lawyer
A man in Port St. Lucie, Florida may be in need of a Port St. Lucie aggravated assault lawyer after he allegedly brandished a firearm while assaulting a woman. The man was pulled over by police a short time after the alleged attack and claimed that neither the SUV he was driving or the gun belonged to him. The Port St. Lucie Sheriffs Department says the man claimed the gun was the property of his cousin, John Wick.
The man was arrested and booked into the Port St. Lucie jail on charges of domestic battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held on a $3500 bail.
The police became involved in the incident after receiving a call from a woman who said a 27-year-old man pushed her on the floor of her apartment and threatened her life while pointing a gun at her.
The woman told officers who questioned her immediately following the incident that her attacker stashed the gun in a Porsche SUV. Police found both the handgun allegedly used in the attack and a rifle during a subsequent search of the vehicle.
Movie buffs may remember John Wick as the name of a fictional assassin played by Keanu Reeves in a series of hit Hollywood movies.
The man later admitted to the police that he did not have a cousin named John Wick but would not provide police with another name.
