A man who reportedly fired a gun after an argument with a teenager about a dog has been ordered to turn in his guns to the Sheriff’s Department while his case makes its way through the court system.
Phillip Brown, 24, was in General Sessions Court on Tuesday and had his charge of aggravated assault bound over to the grand jury after witness testimony.
According to the warrant for Brown’s arrest, the incident took place March 18 on Burch Lane off Shelbyville Road. The 17-year-old juvenile told law enforcement he had been going to feed a dog for a friend. While he was there, he got in an argument with Brown, a neighbor.
“The neighbor of the adjoining property accused him of taunting his dog,” the arrest warrant says. “Phillip Brown argued with him and had words with another passenger in the truck.”
As the juvenile and his passenger were leaving, Brown reportedly wanted to make one more statement.
“Phillip Brown admitted to firing his gun into the ground,” the warrant says.
Brown was told by Judge Bill Locke on Tuesday not to have any contact with the victims.
