HARKER HEIGHTS — A man who refused to take a taxi home was arrested on a deadly conduct charge Thursday night, according to a news release sent by Harker Heights police spokesman Sgt. Steve Miller.

Around 9:30 p.m., officers were sent to Wet Willy's, a bar in the 400 block of West Veterans Memorial Boulevard. A customer was asked by management staff to take a taxi home instead of drive, and he refused, police said.

Before police arrived, the man who was asked to take a taxi, Brandon Mykal Stevens, 24, pulled a shotgun from his car, and "displayed it in a threatening manner" according to the affidavit.

A "nearby citizen" helped the Wet Willy's staff disarm Stevens, according to the affidavit, police said. When police arrived, they arrested Stevens on a deadly conduct charge.

He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, and bond was set at $5,000. He is held at the Harker Heights Police Department, where he awaits transport to the Bell County Jail. The offense is a Class A misdemeanor.
