Police: West Ashley man arrested for pointing gun at relative

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators with the Charleston Police Department say they have arrested a 41-year-old man accused of pointing a gun at relative.

Authorities arrested Daniel Michael Bragg around noon on Monday in North Charleston. Bragg was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Bragg was wanted by police in connection to an incident outside a home in West Ashley on the night of Oct. 21.

The victim said he and Bragg's brother were in a verbal argument outside a home on Hillsboro Drive.

According to the victim, after the argument ended peacefully, Bragg, with his right hand hidden behind his leg, came running towards him from the home shouting, "You trying to do something to my brother?"

The victim said he held both of his hands up to defend himself when he saw Bragg holding a gun.

The victim told investigators that Bragg pointed the revolver at his face and asked "What are you going to do?"

Authorities say the victim then told Bragg's brother to grab the suspect so he would not get shot.

The victim said Bragg's brother attempted to restrain the suspect, but Bragg punched the victim knocking his glasses off.

Police say the victim then ran to his car and drove away.

The victim told police he feared for his life and wanted Bragg charged with aggravated assault.
