AUSTIN (October 20, 2013)—Daniel Staley was ordered jailed in lieu of $57,000 bond after a road rage incident in Austin in which a rifle was used to threaten a driver.
The rifle was tossed into a neighbor’s backyard after the incident, police said.
Staley was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and driving while intoxicated.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Staley was in his vehicle when he began cursing at another driver Thursday night, pulled up next to the driver and then aimed a rifle at him.
Staley fled after the other driver called 911.
Police say a witness saw Staley return to his neighborhood and toss an object, later identified as the rifle, into a neighbor's backyard.
Staley was held in the Travis County Jail.
