GALVESTON, Texas — A patron asked to leave a bar was accused of returning with a loaded handgun and attempting to shoot the owner and bouncer. The weapon, however, misfired, authorities said Monday.

Bond for James Lawrence Brasfield, 61, was set at $40,000 on two felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Galveston police Capt. Jeff Heyse said.

Brasfield was released on bond from the county jail after his Sunday booking, Capt. Barry Cook, a Galveston County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said.

Officers were called at 7:25 p.m. Saturday to Woody’s, 11149 FM 3005, where they learned a patron was asked to leave but returned with a gun, Heyse said.
