A man who reportedly stood in a roadway and threatened to shoot a passerby was jailed on aggravated assault and other charges after deputies responded to a domestic dispute call.

Bulloch County sheriff's Capt. Todd Hutchens said Marvin Curtis Mincer, 60, was involved in a domestic dispute with his wife and adult daughter at their Sinkhole Road home. The two women left the house, but Mincer, reportedly intoxicated, went outside and began firing a gun into the air, he said.

At some point, Mincer entered the roadway, still firing shots, and when a driver, who was not initially involved in the dispute, approached, Mincer reportedly waved the gun and told him to pass, Hutchens said.

Then, Mincer reportedly aimed the gun at the driver and threatened to shoot him, he said.

Deputies arrived and took Mincer into custody, booking him into the Bulloch County Jail on charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm or knife during commission of a crime, discharging a firearm while under the influence, discharging a firearm on or near a public highway, reckless conduct, criminal trespass/family violence, and two counts of simple battery/family violence.

Mincer is being held in the Bulloch County Jail without bond, pending further court appearances, according to jail records. Hitchens said no one was injured in the incident.
