A man who allegedly pointed a handgun at an acquaintance during an argument Monday night in Douglas was charged with two felonies and held at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Timothy Beagle, 34, was charged with felony third-degree assault after police investigated the allegations of his actions made by a 40 year-old-man at 8:20 p.m. Monday. Beagle also was charged with felony third-degree weapons misconduct when it was learned a prior felony conviction restricted him from possessing a handgun.
Police charged Beagle with misdemeanor fourth-degree weapons misconduct, alleging he was intoxicated while possessing the firearm.
Tuesday in Juneau District Court, Juneau Assistant District Attorney Doug Gardner said Beagle's felony record was from another state. In going over Beagle's out-of-state record, he said he was unsure how they were adjudicated. But he suggested the possibility that Beagle might leave the state if released.
When Gardner suggested Beagle be required to sign a waiver to be extradited back to Alaska should he flee the charges, Beagle said he would agree to the condition.
In addition to setting the bail, District Judge Keith Levy required that a third-party custodian would have to be approved before Beagle's release.
