Investigating officers determined 55 year-old Dawn Magnuson had pointed a loaded gun at a person inside a bar in a threatening manner.

She returned and a second verbal exchange took place. During that argue, Magnuson produced the firearm. The victim attempted to call police but Magnuson ripped a phone off the wall then pointed the gun at the victim. The victim took the gun from Magnuson. Magnuson left the bar and proceeded to contact police, explaining her actions. Magnuson is being held at the Hughes County Jail on charges of Aggravated Assault-Domestic Violence; Possession of a Loaded Firearm While Intoxicated, D-U-I and Interfering with Emergency Communications.
