PIGEON FORGE — A man who was living at Cold Creek Resort is facing multiple charges of aggravated assault after he allegedly waved a handgun at other people at the resort during an argument.
Witnesses said 24-year-old Jason Brandenburg had been arguing with some other people when he went into the room where he was staying and came back out with a handgun, according to court documents.
They said he racked the gun — ensuring there was a round in the chamber — and pointed it at them.
One caller to 911 reported that Brandenburg had put the gun under his bed after the confrontation.
When officers searched his room, they found a gun in that location.
They charged Brandenburg with five counts of aggravated assault. He was released from the Sevier County Jail after posting $20,000 bond.
