Texas judge accused of pointing gun in road rage incident

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - A South Texas judge has pleaded not guilty to charges alleging he tried to run another vehicle off the road and pointed a gun at its occupants.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports state District Judge Guy Williams was indicted Friday on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Williams is free on a $25,000 bond.

According to police, a woman called 911 on April 28 and told dispatchers the driver of a Mercedes, later identified as Williams, allegedly attempted to run her car off the road.

In a statement, Williams' attorneys, Terry Shamsie and Lisa Greenberg, say he is innocent and asked people not to rush to judgment.

Police say Williams was accused of hitting a Jeep in 2013. No charges were filed.

You won't usually find Denzel Washington in a movie sequel. He just doesn't do them. Something about not wanting to repeat himself. So there must be something special indeed for him to break his own rule for "The Equalizer 2."
