GALVESTON

A Galveston man was charged with assault Tuesday after being accused of threatening a woman with a BB gun during a fight over spilled milk, police said.

Jospeh Sendejas, 29, of Galveston, was charged with a single count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Galveston Police Department.

Just before 3 a.m., police were called to home in the 7200 block of Heards Lane, where a woman told officers she had slapped Sendejas because he had fallen asleep and spilled milk on the floor, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Sendejas began yelling at the woman, tearing up her belongings and placed a black and silver handgun to her head, according to the affidavit.

Police arrested Sendejas and determined the gun was an air pistol designed to look like a real handgun, according to the affidavit.

Sendejas was held on $60,000 bond and was still in custody at the Galveston County Jail on Wednesday evening, according to court records.

"Police arrested Sendejas and determined the gun was an air pistol designed to look like a real handgun, according to the affidavit."

It's a good thing for Mr. Sendejas that he didn't point the thing at the police. This would have been a much different story.
