A Chireno man is facing a second-degree felony for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in an altercation with his wife early Friday morning.

Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 200 block of CR 295 around 4:20 a.m. in regards to an altercation between Christopher J. Kolb, 36, and his wife, according to records.

Kolb reportedly told deputies he’d fired a gun into a camper on the property the woman had locked herself into during the altercation.

“Witnesses were contacted and...the defendant was observed pulling his wife out of a vehicle, causing her to fall face down resulting in a facial injury,” according to the arrest affidavit filed in the case. “Witnesses also confirmed that (Kolb) did discharge the firearm into the camper while his wife was inside.”

Inside the camper, Kolb allegedly assaulted his wife, grabbing her by the hair and “shaking her head back and forth,” the affidavit reads.

Kolb was still jailed as of Friday afternoon on the felony aggravated assault charge, as well as a misdemeanor family-violence assault charge.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to between two and 20 years incarceration on the felony charge and ordered to pay up to $10,000 in fines. The Class-A misdemeanor assault charge carries a potential punishment of up to a year in jail and a fine up to $4,000, according to the state penal code.
