ROSWELL, N.M. - A former Chaves County deputy who allegedly pointed a gun at a man in March will head to trial August 29.
David Bradshaw has been charged with aggravated assault and abuse of a child.
And now, surveillance video of the confrontation has been released.
John P. Sugg, District Attorney for the 12th Judicial District, said the video shows Bradshaw driving up to the man’s home and blocking him in his driveway.
In a criminal complaint filed after the incident, the man said he was scared, grabbed his gun and put it in his pocket.
In the video, the man can be seen walking up to the truck. He said Bradshaw was yelling at him.
Moments later, the man raised his hands in the air and backed off.
In his statement, he said that’s when Bradshaw noticed his gun and pointed a revolver at him.
Bradshaw then moved his truck forward and gets out to continue the confrontation, but a few minutes later, a Chaves County Deputy arrived and diffused the situation.
The man said the deputy apologized for Bradshaw’s actions after he drove off.
Sugg said a child was in the back seat of Bradshaw’s truck the entire time.
In a previous phone interview, Sugg said Bradshaw doesn’t deny the incident, but he does deny pulling out a gun on the man.
Bradshaw has entered a not-guilty plea. If he is found guilty, he could face up to 6 and a half years in prison.
