A Dickinson man was arrested Thursday, days after he was accused of confronting his girlfriend's ex-husband with a gun and then fleeing from police.

Galveston County Sheriff's Office deputies were called about 2:20 p.m. Dec. 30 to FM 517 about a man in a black Hummer SUV who had pointed a gun at another person, according to warrant obtained by The Daily News.

The person who called the police was following the SUV, and provided them with a location. Deputies saw a Hummer matching the description driving west on FM 517, according to the warrant.

Deputies attempted to stop the SUV, but it fled, according to the warrant. The driver weaved in and out of traffic, and ran a red traffic light, according to the warrant. 

The deputies lost sight of the SUV at state Highway 3, and the chase ended, according to the warrant.

After the chase, the deputies went to a house in the 900 block of 11th Street in San Leon, where the incident started. 

At the house, the victim told deputies he had been confronted by another man in his driveway. The man had driven up to the house, got out of the SUV, and called the victim over, according to the warrant.

The driver of the SUV then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victim, and said "I'm going to kill you," according to the warrant. He then drove away.

The victim identified the driver of the SUV as the man who is dating his ex-wife, according to the warrant.

Deputies arrested Victor Aguilera, 51, of Dickinson, on Thursday, according to Galveston County Jail records. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest with a vehicle. Both charges are felonies.

His combined bond was set at $105,000. Aguilera was still in custody at the Galveston County Jail on Friday morning, according to jail records.
