Peshoff [advised] the driver then attempted to run her off the road, but was unsuccessful. Peshoff [advised] the driver then got beside her [vehicle] again and pointed a black handgun at her as she was driving. Peshoff stated that she was in fear for her and her passengers life and continued to drive, at which time Peshoff [advised] she contacted the authorities via cell phone. Peshoff [advised] she stopped at the intersection of Twin City Hwy.
and Hogaboom at which time so did the driver of the truck at which time a male white wearing a black shirt exited the vehicle and came to her window. Peshoff [advised] she immediately noticed the male had a handgun in his hand pointed at her. Peshoff [advised] he instructed her to pull into the closest parking lot due to the fact that her passenger had an outstanding warrant for her arrest. Peshoff [advised] the driver then got back into his vehicle. Peshoff [advised] she pulled into the parking lot of the Church Of God on Twin City and was once again confronted by the male who once again had his handgun pointed at her and her passenger through the front windshield. Peshoff [advised] she feared that she and her passenger, Jackowski, were going to be shot. Peshoff [advised] that a short time later Groves PD arrived and detained the driver of the truck. Affiant then made contact with the driver of the black truck who was identified as Stephen Louis Hartman, who also had a concealed handgun license and private security identfications. Hartman [advised] he was performing his duties as a private investigator when he discovered Peshoff’s passenger Jackowski had an outstanding warrant for her arrest.
Hartman [advised] he was trying to get Peshoff to stop so he could take Jackowski into custody for the warrant but [advised] Peshoff wouldn’t stop at which time he drew his weapon to get her to do so. Affiant then placed Hartman under arrest for Deadly Conduct and due to Hartman committing an offense with a handgun while being a concealed handgun license Holder, Hartman was also [arrested] for Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon. Hartman was then transported to [the] Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for booking for the above listed offenses. These offenses occurred in Port Arthur, Jefferson County, Texas. Here is a different offense report from the same incident. On the above date and time at the above location, the complainant advised officer that a male white subject brandished a handgun pointing it in her direction which caused her to fear serious bodily injury or death after attempting to run her off the road several times, all in an effort to serve an outstanding warrant on a passenger in her vehicle. Taken from Hartman was one 9mm Smith & Wesson MP9 handgun loaded with 18 rounds of ammunition. SO WHAT WAS HARTMAN GOING TO DO WITH THIS LITTLE GIRL ONCE HE GOT HER HAND CUFFED IN THE BACK OF HIS CAR? He looks like the kind of guy who would do such a thing. Hartman, or Morgan, if you are reading this we here at the BV Files would love to know what legal authority you had to force those girls off the road – at gun point? So what if one of those girls had a warrant out for her arrest, are you the police? What legal authority do you have to arrest people with warrants anyways? When you are facing certain jail time in a county where you know all of the judges and sheriffs and district attorneys are all against you, who do you turn to for help in getting you out of this jam? Makes perfect sense to hire a child abusing, drug addict criminal to represent you on your criminal case, right? FUN FACT: Texas Penal Code Section 22.05 DEADLY CONDUCT.

Unlawfully carrying a weapon is committed when you are in your car and you have a handgun that is visible to members of the public (i.e.
