LA VERNIA -- Deputies with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office are urging anyone who finds a revolver in the vicinity of Oak Hill Road south of here to call authorities.

Chief Deputy Johnie Deagen of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said the weapon might have been dumped following an incident that occurred at approximately 9:30 p.m. March 11. That is when officials say 43-year-old Steven Pruski and another man became involved in a fight outside a nearby gun shop.

When the owner of the shop attempted to break up the fight, Pruski allegedly produced the weapon and fired it once. No one was shot, but Pruski reportedly fled and was not found to be in possession of the weapon when he was apprehended.

Deagen said Pruski is charged with deadly conduct and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Wilson County Jail records indicate he remains in custody on a total of $36,000 bond, as set by Wilson County Pct. 1 Justice of the Peace Johnny Tejada Villarreal.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535. Anonymous tips, which could qualify for a cash reward, can be furnished to Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636) or http://bit.ly/NDrIut.

Well kio, this happens sometimes when you think you're all bad and bring a gun to a fist fight. Some people don't like having a gun pulled on them and will give you a well deserved beat down. Not everyone would cower as you ... More ›

To bad that the guy in jail is the one who got the crap beat out of him. Kind of a one sided story. Fact checking...you should try it. Gotta love small town politics.

"Some guy" once told me Obama was "the real deal" that he was going to bring this nation together and everything was going to be great once we got the Republicans out...I'm still waiting.
