San Angelo Man Fights Officers After Threatening Baby Mama with a Gun
SAN ANGELO, TX – A San Angelo Man was indicted in May after police say he threatened the mother of his children and her brother with a handgun.
According to the affidavit, on Feb. 3, officers with the San Angelo police department were dispatched to the 200 block of W. 10th st for the report of a possible aggravated assault.
When they arrived they met with two victims who claimed that 21-year-old Michael Leech had threatened them with a black handgun. The two explained that they were brother and sister and that Leech was the father of the sister's two children.
The brother told officers that he and Leech had got into a verbal altercation that led to Leech pulling the gun. Another person was in the room during the incident.
Officers then noticed red marks on the sister's neck and learned of another assault. The marks were from an altercation where Leech had choked her for an unknown amount of time.
A warrant was then issued and Leech was arrested for three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault to a family member by impeding breath/circulation. During the arrest Leech allegedly attempted to fight an officer.
He was booked into the Tom Green County Jail on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault to a family member by impeding breath/circulation, resisting arrest, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. His bond was set at 90,500. He was released from the jail on Febuary 27.
He was indicted on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on May 12. His initial pre-trail is set for July 7 at 2:00 p.m.
