WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The man accused of firing a shot at a security guard at a Wichita store is charged with four counts of aggravated assault.
Twenty-seven-year-old Jake Jacobs was charged Wednesday, two days after he shot at the guard and pointed his gun at three other people at a Burlington Coat Factory store. The guard and customers were not injured.
Jacobs is being held on $100,000 bond. His attorney, Mark Schoenhofer, filed a request to have the bond reduced so Jacobs can be treated for a broken jaw and teeth he suffered when he was arrested
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/NGPJnk ) that Schoenhofer is disputing police claims that Jacobs resisted arrest.
Deputy Chief Tom Stolz says police used force after Jacobs refused to comply with several orders and scuffled with officers.
