BURNET, Texas -- A Killeen-area woman who thought she and a friend were going to enjoy a dinner at a Killeen restaurant found herself in Burnet County with a gun pointed to her head instead, according to court documents.
On Aug. 17, Burnet police arrested Alexander Erik Levy, 25, of Killeen on an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. He was booked into the Burnet County Jail but was released later the same day after posting a $10,000 surety bond.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit prepared by Burnet County Sheriff’s Office investigator Denton Wills and signed Aug. 16 by Burnet County Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Lisa Whitehead, on July 27, Levy pointed a .45-caliber Rossi Ranch Hand rifle at the head of a woman and pulled the trigger. The gun did not fire.
A woman contacted the BCSO office July 28 and told a deputy that, on the previous night, a friend called her and asked if she wanted to go to dinner at a Killeen restaurant. When the man arrived, Levy also was with him, according to the affidavit.
The woman told the deputy Levy, who was driving, headed south on Texas 195 in a direction away from Killeen. When she asked where they were going, she told the deputy Levy turned and said to her, “We’re going wherever I say we’re going, b—-. I’m driving,” according to the affidavit.
Further questions about their destination drew no responses, the woman told deputies.
At one point, the truck crossed into Burnet County on CR 220 and reached a speed of about 100 mph. The woman told deputies the truck struck a dip causing it to momentarily go airborne, and, when it hit the pavement, the jolt caused her to spill her drink on the passenger door and seat.
Levy became more upset and again yelled at her, according to the affidavit.
At one point, when they were in the Briggs area, Levy grabbed a weapon from under the seat, pointed it at the woman’s face and pulled the trigger. The woman told deputies she heard the gun “click” when Levy pulled the trigger, according to the affidavit.
The woman told deputies she slapped the gun out of her face, but she was afraid. Levy then placed the gun on the floor board behind him, according to the affidavit.
If convicted, Levy could face up to 20 years in prison.
