Two fired Texas police officers, accused of holding country singer Steve Holy at gunpoint, have been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Randy Anderson, 26, and Paul Loughridge, 48, were indicted on Monday (17Mar08). Anderson was also charged with kidnapping.
The two off-duty cops met Holy and a friend in a Dallas bar on 27 December (08) before the group returned to the star's home.
There, they allegedly forced Holy to the ground, pointed a gun at his head and threatened to kill him during a heated argument over whether he was a professional or not.
Police officials fired Anderson and Loughridge in January (08).
Loughridge believes he will be found not guilty of the aggravated assault charge levelled against him.
He says, "I've had faith all along in the criminal justice system, and that faith continues."
Two Texas police officers have been given administrative leave after allegedly holding country singer Steve Holy at gunpoint.
The Dallas County district attorney's office is considering whether to file aggravated assault charges against Randy Anderson, 25, and Paul Loughridge, 48, after the incident which occurred last month (Dec07).
The men met Holy and a friend in a bar in Dallas on 27 December (07) before accompanying them home for a game of football. However, following a heated argument over Holy's profession as a singer, the off-duty officers allegedly forced the star down on to the kitchen floor and held a gun to his head. Holy was eventually allowed to go upstairs to find documents to prove his fame, where he immediately told his wife to call for emergency services.
GEORGE STRAIT has made country music history by scoring his 41st number one on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in America.
The Texan singer/songwriter's GIVE IT AWAY has toppled Steve Holy'S BRAND NEW GIRLFRIEND, giving Strait the honour of becoming the only artist to have more than 40 chart toppers.
Strait, who first hit the top in 1982 with FOOL HEARTED MEMORY, was previously tied with Conway Twitty on 40.
It's shaping up to be a remarkable autumn (06) for Strait - he'll be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in November (06).
Strait's induction, in a category for artists who achieved national prominence between 1975 and the present day, will be his second in the fabled Nashville, Tennessee, music museum.
