A College Station man was arrested early Friday morning after police say he threatened a Taco Bell employee with a gun and then crashed his vehicle.

It all started just after 1 a.m. at the Taco Bell in the 900 block of William D. Fitch.

An employee called police to report that a man was threatening the business and pointing a gun at him.

The victim said Kenneth Reese, 21, of Houston, and a woman walked into the fast food restaurant as the business was closing.

When the employee refused to serve the pair, Reese reportedly became upset and made a comment about "shooting this place up".

Officials say as the pair was leaving, Reese pointed a gun at the employee.

A short time later, a different officer responded to an accident at Rock Prairie Road and State Highway 6, which authorities determined also involved Reese.

Reese was arrested.

He was in the Brazos County Jail Friday charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and driving while intoxicated.
