MW man indicted after pointing gun at two individuals

Troy Neil Smith

A Parker County grand jury recently indicted Troy Neil Smith, 39, of Mineral Wells, on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

On Jan. 13, a Parker County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to an address in Mineral Wells in reference to a person with a weapon, according to the probable cause affidavit. Upon arrival, a male at the scene advised the deputy that he was arguing with Smith. The male said Smith was holding a kitchen knife saying he was going to kill him.

“[Smith] threatened to call CPS to have the victim’s 5-month-old child taken away from them at which time the victim’s girlfriend […] started walking toward the defendant,” according to the affidavit. “The defendant pulled a gun out of his back pocket and pointed it at [the girlfriend]. The defendant then pointed the gun at the victim’s head with his finger on the trigger.”

The male’s mother then stepped between them, according to the affidavit. At that time, Smith then left the residence and walked toward his vehicle while continuing to point the gun toward the male.

The male’s mother told the deputy she believes the only reason Smith didn’t shoot her son is because she stepped in between them, according to the affidavit.

Smith was arrested on March 2 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $25,000 and he bonded out the same day.

“If he is convicted of either count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Mr. Smith will be facing a punishment range of two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000,” Parker County District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “If he is convicted of both counts, any sentences assessed will run concurrently.

“His case was assigned to the 415th District Court, Judge Graham Quisenberry presiding. He is scheduled for arraignment on June 8 and for a jury trial on Sept. 28.”
