A Fort Hood soldier is behind bars after police said he threatened a woman with a gun after she danced with another man.

According to an arrest affidavit, 27-year-old Brandon Wayne Workman called his sergeant April 4 and told him to come to a home in the 2600 block of Bosewell Drive and get him before he “killed someone.”

Killeen police were called to scene. When they arrived, they spoke with the female victim, who told them Workman held a gun to her head in the bathroom. She said Workman was angry with her for dancing with one of his friends in the driveway, the affidavit stated.

Officers said they found a black-and-silver .380 handgun inside a shoe in a home’s closet. Workman also told police there was a rifle under his bed.

Judge Bill Cooke arraigned Workman on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault Monday.

Cooke set Workman’s bail at $100,000. As of Monday afternoon, Workman was in custody in Bell County Jail.

The following individuals also were arraigned Monday on unrelated charges:

  • Isaac Xavier Lewis, 21, on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, less than 1 gram. Lewis’ bail was set at $20,000.
  • Jasmine Shonkia Horton, 24, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Horton’s bail was set at $100,000.

Who knows... So many women in Killeen will mess with other guys behind and sometimes in front of their husbands. I've seen more than one incidence where a woman not only admitted to cheating on her husband but rubbed it in his face... Caused him to snap.


Who knows what happend there
