COMAL COUNTY, Texas -- A former mayor of New Braunfels has been accused of breaking into a man's home and attacking a woman inside late Friday night.
Neighbors alerted law enforcement to a disturbance in the 400 block of Comal Avenue just before midnight Friday, where a man was witnessed slashing tires in someone's driveway, yelling and banging on the front door, said David Ferguson, communications coordinator with the New Braunfels Police Department.
Before authorities could arrive on the scene, 50-year-old Stone Williams was reportedly able to barge into the home twice, attacking a woman inside, who he was reportedly romantically linked to.
The second time Williams made his way into the home, the homeowner was able to retrieve a gun and fire it once at the wall, in what Ferguson described as a warning shot. Williams then fled the home and was picked up by law enforcement a short time later.
Williams has been charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a felony, which is a second-degree felony offense, said Ferguson. He was booked into the Comal County jail and posted a $5,000 cash bond Saturday.
Ferguson said that the first time Williams entered the home, he was equipped with a firearm in a holster. The firearm was removed before he entered a second time and later recovered by police.
Ferguson said the female victim, male homeowner, and Williams all know each other. Further charges may be pending in the case.
