A man charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after firing a revolver at two men during an argument has been sentenced to 10 years probation, 250 community service hours and $900 in fines.

Stinnett was arrested in October 2012 near the intersection of E. Grande and Sutherland Drive in Tyler. 

According to police, Stinnett was riding a bicycle on the sidewalk on East Grande and as he approached two men walking, he yelled at them to let them know he was passing by. The two men, Michael Bojorquez and David Scott Harris, then yelled back at him as they were moving out of the way.

Stinnett continued riding for a bit and then turned around and approached the two again. This time the two men saw him approaching and moved out of the way. He passed by and they began arguing again from about 10 yards away.

Stinnett claimed he felt threatened by the two unarmed men, so he drew a small caliber revolver and fired one shot at them.
