On March 24, Brian Guerra was arrested on charges of deadly conduct, Hidalgo County records indicate.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by ValleyCentral, at 2:15 a.m. Friday, outside the McAllen downtown bar district, Guerra was standing near some cars with a group of men as another group approached to get into their vehicles.

At that time, Guerra allegedly asked the men if they wanted to fight and revealed a handgun as he walked toward them.

“Guerra then grabbed the handgun and racked the slide several times in an attempt to load a round into the chamber,” the complaint stated.

A victim of the incident said he feared Guerra would shoot him as they began to fight. The victim also stated Guerra ran into his gray Camaro and left the area as police attempted to arrest him.
