Roommate?  Well that's a new one even for Austin the gay capital of TX.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A Travis County assistant district attorney was arrested Saturday morning on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following an argument with a roommate, according to an arrest affidavit.

Joseph Frederick III, 51, was booked in the Travis County jail at 3:49 a.m. by the Austin Police Department, according to Travis County inmate records.

According to the arrest affidavit, Frederick and his roommate got into an argument Friday after Frederick said his roommate was making “googly eyes” at a guest in their apartment.

An argument escalated and the roommate went into his bedroom, locked his door and packed his belongings, the affidavit said. During this time, the roommate told police Frederick was trying to force the bedroom door open and caused damage to the door.

The roommate told police he opened the bedroom door and saw Frederick pointing a silver revolver at him, according to the affidavit. The roommate left the room, and when he returned he saw Frederick point a gun at his face and say, “I’ll shoot you.”

Police said a video taken by the roommate showed Frederick walking around with a gun. Frederick is heard accusing the roommate of pushing him and saying “that the gun is self-defense.”
