JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Jonesboro man nicknamed "Pickle" found himself in one after police say he pulled a gun on a juvenile and a woman.

Craighead County District Judge David Boling found probable cause Wednesday to charge 20-year-old Thomas Lee Razor, also known as "Pickle," with two counts of aggravated assault and first-degree endangering the welfare of an incompetent person.

The charges stem from an incident Tuesday morning in the 600-block of Gladiolus.

According to court documents, a woman claimed she and her son were standing outside their apartment when Razor walked up.

"[The woman] stated Razor pulled a gun and pointed it at her and said she was 'lucky she had her son with her' and continued to walk," the affidavit said.

Another juvenile victim told police he was driving to his girlfriend's apartment when he saw Razor pointing a handgun at him. After he parked the car, he claimed Razor started walking toward him.

When Razor saw a named witness standing outside, the second juvenile victim said he "tucked his gun and changed directions."

The witness told police Razor was wearing a black hoodie and brandishing a silver firearm.

An officer called to the scene found Razor standing in the area of Kristi Lake and took him into custody.

On the way to the Craighead County Detention Center, Razor reportedly told the officer the first juvenile victim had called him a vulgar name, "so he was chasing after him" when the officer arrived.

Razor, who was arrested in 2016 on suspicion of attempting to commit first-degree murder, remains in the CCDC at this time on a $50,000 cash/surety bond.
