Texas prosecutor accused of pulling a gun on his roommate during an argument over streaming porn on TV

An assistant district attorney in Texas was arrested after he allegedly pointed a loaded gun at his roommate and threatened to shoot him during an argument over streaming porn videos.

Joseph Francis Frederick III, 51, was booked into the Travis County Jail Saturday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. On Sunday, he started cooperation.

According to an arrest affidavit, the incident began on June 7 when Frederick woke up his roommate asking for help because he was having trouble streaming porn videos on his TV.

After the roommate, who was not named, fixed the streaming issue, Frederick allegedly accused him of flirting with someone who was at their West Austin home earlier in the day and giving a “googly eyed” look at the guest, which upset roommate who said he felt like he was being called a “slut” in a statement obtained by FOX7.

An argument broke out, which then escalated when Frederick tried to break into the man’s locked bedroom, damaging the door.

The roommate told police that Frederick told him, “Get away from me” and “You are a danger to yourself and everyone around you,” according to the affidavit.

A short time later, when the man opened the door to his room, Frederick was in the hallway pointing a gun at him, allegedly pointing it in the man’s face and saying, “I’m going to shoot you.”

The roommate then began recording the entire ordeal, which was shown to police. The video shows Frederick walking around the house, still holding the gun, shouting at his roommate, “Get the fuck out.”

No injuries were reported.

According to the statement, a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special with five hollow point rounds was found at the scene.

The Travis County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the incident and released a statement saying, “Our office will review information in this case and we have no further comment at this time.”
