At a preliminary hearing Thursday in Columbus Recorder’s Court, Judge Michael Cielinski ordered Larry Wilson held in the Muscogee County Jail on bonds totaling $45,000 for six counts of aggravated assault, three counts of third-degree cruelty to children, one count of terroristic threats and one count of second-degree criminal damage.
His case was bound over to Superior Court.
At 2:57 a.m. Wednesday, Columbus police were dispatched to a house on Pecan Street in reference to a dispute. According to a police report, $1,500 worth of damage was done to property from shots fired.
Police and witnesses testified Thursday that the dispute involved Wilson, his ex-girlfriend with whom he had children and her new boyfriend. Wilson allegedly used a silver handgun to shoot at the house while three adults and three children were inside, but no bullets penetrated the door.
Wilson admitted to shooting at the new boyfriend’s car, damaging the 2003 Chevy Impala, but he denied shooting at the house.
“I wouldn’t do that with my children in there,” he said.
