Warren County Circuit Court granted a Front Royal man bond Monday morning after he was held at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail for nearly two weeks.
Xavier Roy, 25, was arrested earlier this month and charged with brandishing and reckless handling of a firearm.
Police responded to a Church Street address on Jan. 14 after complaints of shots being fired.
According to court documents, Roy was at the address and got into an argument with a woman he was with. After one of the neighbors tried to intervene, another neighbor went into his home and came back out with a wooden bat, according to court documents.
The neighbor with the bat told officers he never raised the bat or tried to swing it at Roy or anyone else. The neighbor told police he told Roy he had to leave.
In response to the demand he leave, Roy pulled a pistol out of his waistband and fired it once into the sky before pointing the gun at the neighbor, according to court documents.
According to court documents, Roy has a brief criminal history, including a concealed weapons charge.
On a checklist of bail determinations, the magistrate wrote that Roy’s history wasn’t “extremely serious” but it did contain some “concerning information in relation to his potential to comply with conditions of release.”
