LAS CRUCES, New Mexico - Police arrested a man accused of pointing an AR-15 style rifle at a woman outside a sports bar Sunday evening.
Robert Burnham, 32, is charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Police officers responded to The Game II, at 4131 Northrise Dr., shortly before 7 p.m. January 14, 2018.
Investigators were told Burnham got into an argument with two women outside the bar. As the argument escalated, Burnham went to his Jeep, pulled out an AR-15 style rifle and allegedly pointed it at one of the women, police said.
The other woman involved in the argument intervened by pushing the barrel of the rifle away, police added.
Burnham then left the area in a Jeep, heading south on Sonoma Ranch Boulevard. Police located the Jeep near the Walmart store on Sonoma Ranch Boulevard.
Burnham was taken into custody without further incident. "Clearly visible inside the Jeep was a black AR-15 style rifle partially wrapped in a jacket and behind the front seats," police said in a news release.
Burnham was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where he is initially being held without bond.
