A Columbus man was arrested Saturday afternoon on accusations he pointed a shotgun at some people at a gas station, police said.
Javle Johnson, 45, approached a 36-year-old man who was pumping gas at the Country Corner, 2117 Morris Road, around 2:20 p.m., reports state. Johnson accused the man of sleeping with his wife and began arguing with him.
Two women inside the car, 24- and 29-years-old, stepped outside as Johnson confronted the other man, reports show. The 24-year-old woman told Johnson to leave. He calmed down, but grew angry again and pushed her.
The trio were trying to leave in the 36-year-old’s vehicle when Johnson pulled a 12-gauge shotgun and pointed it at them, police said. Johnson then left, and an officer pulled him over sometime afterward.

Johnson was charged with three counts of reckless conduct, three counts of pointing a gun and one count each of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and simple battery. He remained in the Muscogee County Jail without bond Sunday night.
