A woman will not serve any jail time after pointing a gun at a man’s head and threatening to shoot him during an argument.

The woman, Akita Miller, 27, was given a three-year judicial diversion, meaning the charge can be erased from her record if she gets in no further trouble.

The altercation which led to her arrest happened on Rainbow Street. Miller was reportedly at the home to help move furniture, according to the warrant for her arrest.

Multiple witnesses on the scene told law enforcement an argument erupted between Miller and a man on the premises and Miller responded by pulling a gun.

“Akita Miller displayed a firearm and pointed it at a male party’s head and told him she was going to shoot him,” the arrest warrant states.

Miller was taken into custody for aggravated assault, a felony which carries a possible sentence of three to six years in prison.

In granting the judicial diversion, it was ordered for Miller to forfeit her weapon and her gun carry permit. She is to have no contact with the victim.
