Texas woman arrested for brandishing loaded gun at 7-year-old trick-or-treater
Hays County Sheriff's Office

On Monday, KVUE reported that a woman from Buda, Texas was arrested after allegedly pointing a loaded-gun at a 7-year-old out trick-or-treating.

"The Hays County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to the 100 block of Quarter Ave. around 7:20 p.m. Deputies determined a resident in the area was yelling at children who were walking outside her house trick-or-treating," reported KVUE's Jeff Bell. "The HCSO said 35-year-old Monica Ann Bradford exited her residence with a loaded weapon and pointed it at a 7-year-old."

According to the report, Bradford has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Hays County Jail with bail set at $10,000.

Buda is a small town that includes some of the suburbs south of Austin.

The incident occurred after Texas Republicans this year enacted a new law allowing handguns to be carried without a permit or training.
