An Austin man is accused of following a person who legally repossessed his car and pulling a gun on him in Round Rock, according to an arrest affidavit released this week.
James Bebber, 23, of Austin, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Round Rock police charged Bebber on Aug. 22 but he was not arrested by Austin police until Nov. 26, said Nick Olivier, a Round Rock police spokesman.
Police were notified at 10:39 p.m. Aug. 21 about an assault at a Round Rock intersection, the affidavit says. The victim told officers that Bebber had approached him and “words were exchanged” after the victim had legally repossessed a 2010 Scion TC owned by Bebber in Austin, according to the affidavit.
It says Bebber followed the victim from Austin to the intersection of Louis Henna and Greenlawn boulevards in Round Rock. Bebber then got out of his car at the intersection and pointed a black pistol at the victim “while assuming a shooting stance.”
Bebber demanded that the victim give him back his Scion, according to the affidavit. Bebber was not in custody Thursday at the Williamson County Jail or the Travis County Jail.
