A Washington County woman is behind bars after her arrest for assault with a deadly weapon.
Sheriff’s deputies were called out to 2300 block of Kenjura Lane last Monday afternoon, when Linda Sue Kenjura said she’d fired shots in the air to scare a man off her property.
Kenjura reportedly told deputies she’d fired warning shots from a pistol into the air and into the ground to chase off a man identified as 36-year old Benjimen lee Farrer of Friendswood, who was not welcome on her property.
Several hours later, deputies discovered that Farer had been struck by one of the bullets from Kenjura’s .357 magnum.
Farrer claims Kenjura fired at his vehicle as he was leaving, striking him in the left wrist.
Farrer was treated and released from Scott and White Hospital in Brenham.
Monday deputies obtained an arrest warrant for Kenjura for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
She was arrested without incident. Her bond is set at $50,000.
