Brandon Jones, best known for a recurring role on Pretty Little Liars, was charged with assault after he allegedly pointed a gun at a neighbor.

Brandon Jones Charged

Jones, 27, was charged with one felony count of assault with a firearm, one misdemeanor count of exhibiting a deadly weapon, and another misdemeanor count of exhibiting a concealable firearm in public, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Back in October of last year, Jones allegedly got into a confrontation with a neighbor and “exhibited a hidden handgun.” In a follow up incident, it is alleged that Jones brandished a knife and pointed his gun at his neighbor.

Jones’ attorney, expressing his confidence in getting his client’s charges dismissed, claims that Jones only had his gun on him because he felt threatened by the neighbor in question.

“It is our understanding that the gun in Mr. Jones’ possession was fully legal and registered, that he was on his girlfriend’s private property,” the attorney told TMZ. “And that he and his girlfriend felt that they were under threat in a dispute with neighbors.”

If convicted on all charges, Jones could face up to five and a half years in prison.

In addition to Pretty Little Liars, Jones has appeared on The Fosters and in Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
